LC 2018 Registration

Our Long Course Season will begin on Monday, 4/2/2018 and end on 8/1/2018. In order to participate we must receive the registration form/payment authorization from each family. This will be our second season using the RecPlex for standard participation billing. We are hoping that there will be no more mistakes or issues from this point.

Please remember that athletes are enrolling for full season now and that, although you can pay monthly, your participation is for the season. If your athlete arrives to practice on 4/2, but your family has not submitted a billing authorization form, they will not be allowed to participate. Please do not put the coaching staff in this position.

Forms can be turned in at the front desk, where they will be placed in Luke Towry's mailbox. You can also give them to Coach Luke or Coach Dave. Forms may also be given to the attendant at the AquaDesk where they will be placed on Coach Luke's desk. Please follow up with any questions. 

 

Click Here to be taken to the registration page on the website, where you can download the PDF of our registration form/billing authorization.
