All Marlin Families are required to Register through the online registration process:

1) Almost all paper forms for registration are becoming obsolete!  Please make sure you that you click through the documents during the registration process and read them thoroughly.  You will have to agree to each form to advance through the registration process.  This will serve as your electronic signature and agreement. Each swimmer will need to complete the Medical Emergency Information Form-Click Here and return to Head Coach Amina Serir or Assistant Coach Susan Bleecker after registration.    All the training group fees can be found on our website by clicking here.

2) At the time  of your registration please have the following information ready:

It must be received no later than the 30th of the month (or closest Friday prior to that date).  In order for your cc/debit or ACH to not be charged. This will save you any service charges related to the payment of training fees.

You will see your first months CAC Fee on the first invoice (1st of the month) following registration. Any swimmer who is a Mini-Marlin may join the CAC if the choose. Please email Coach Amina if you wish for this to be added to your bill.  If you do so you can register for the CAC/NC Student rate for each session.

The service fees are as follows; credit card service fee is $.30 per transaction and 2.95% of total amount due, which will be added on to the invoice/bill.  You may choose electronic check (ACH) for payment, which incurs a flat fee of $1.50 per transaction, added to the monthly invoice/bill.
