-Once you have logged on or
created an account on the website, you will need to register your
swimmers for the Winter season with the swim team. There are
several options to select from this year:
- The Competitive Team will
practice, compete in swim meets, attend the team banquet, and
receive the team gift.
- The 4Fun Team will practice, but does not compete in
swim meets, and you may select if you would like to attend the team
banquet, receive the team gift, and/or have access to our website
and receive email notifications. If at any time your swimmer
decides to switch to the competitive team, they will need to pay
the difference in registration fees.
When completing the online
registration, you will need to register your children all at the
same time to earn a multi swimmer discount. If you register one
swimmer now and then try to register another swimmer later, you
will NOT earn the multi swimmer discount.
- Once you have reached the end of
registration you will receive a confirmation message telling you
your registration is compete. You must get this message or your
registration will not be completely processed.
- The LVST fee can be paid by credit card while completing
the online registration or paid by check/exact cash during open
registration nights. We will NOT have change available. This
payment can be turned into a board member: Jeanne Fox, Marcy Annibali, Christine Thomas, and Sarah
Kreiser. After open registration
nights, the LVST fee must be paid by credit
card during the online registration.
