2022 Membership Information

Our desire is to welcome back every swimmer from last year’s team. We want everyone to continue to enjoy the fun, the competition and the camaraderie that is the Brookdale Buccaneers.

Also, as a committee of the Brookdale Racquet Club (BRC), it is one of our tasks to ensure BRC bond-holders have a place on the team. We’re also wary of overloading certain age and gender groups, so we’re not going to extend our facilities and coaches too far. So here is our registration plan:

 

February 26 - April 24, 2022 - Registration Open for all Returning 2020 Members

All 2021 swimmers (and their siblings who are new to the team) can go to bucsswimteam.com and register for the team. This is the ONLY window in which returning swimmers and their siblings can sign up for the Bucs.  If you register after this time, there is no guarantee that there will be a spot available.

 

March 19 - April 24, 2022 - Registration Opens for New Members

All new families who want to join the Brookdale Bucs swim team can register during this timeframe.

 

Sunday, April 24, 2022 - Payment Deadline for Registration & Activity Fee

Once your registration is confirmed and all payments are received, your website access will be activated and you will receive an email with sign in instructions. Please allow a few days for activation once your payment has been received. You will receive an email that your registration payment has been processed. Any families with unpaid registration, activity fees, job fees or NSF charges will NOT be allowed to participate in practices, meets or team events.  If your family is experiencing a unique financial situation, please contact the Bucs Parent Board President or Treasurer to work out a payment schedule to keep your family swimming.

Payment can be made by:
