Chevington Woods Kingfish Swim Team/2018 Season Registration Information
Registration for 2018 summer swim team will be as follows. Returning swim team members and their siblings wishing to swim are eligible to register immediately and no later than April 18th in order to provide priority registration. Late registration may result in the loss of your spot on the team.. On April 19th we will notify those on the placement list to register. The process for filling those spots is as follows: Pool members who wish to join the team will be placed in any openings from the placement list that is being maintained. Current pool members with new swimmers should contact Lisa Ross at email@example.com to be placed on the wait list. Non pool members will then be considered for any openings.
If you wish to add a sibling to the team they can register with your returning swimmer. You will need to create a profile for them when prompted on the registration system. If you have difficulty, let me know ASAP!
We ask that for 2018 that you complete your registration online at www.cwkingfishswimteam.org. You can choose to pay by credit card, debit card or check. Everyone must complete their registration online regardless of payment choice or your child will NOT appear on our roster or be entered in meets. Thank you for your understanding.
We have openings in our younger age groups, and a few in our older groups too, if you know of friends who wish to join the team please refer them to get on our placement list by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suit fitting is being scheduled on Tuesday, April 24th at Fairfield Elementary from 5:00-7:00pm. Making Waves will be on hand for suit fittings, goggles, etc. for purchase. We will use a new suit, the TYR Viper suit this season, old versions of the Kingfish Suit from past years are acceptable also. We chose this option due to difficulty to get our custom suit delivered on time and the fact that for quite a few swimmers, it did not fit well. Reminder team suits are NOT required, only team caps are required if you wear a swim cap.
All swimmers need an adult family member to volunteer during ALL three regular season home swim meets as well as ONE away meet AND the championship meet if your child is swimming in champs. If you are on vacation during our home meets arrangements to have an alternative can be made with our volunteer coordinators listed below. Volunteers are required to work ½ of the meet in the capacity of timing, scoring, concessions, bullpen or officiating. Volunteers must find their own replacements if they are unable to work a scheduled meet. A listing of jobs for volunteers will be available online at our website and you will receive an email notifying you when you can sign up to work. The team will require a credit card or ACH account on file for each family in order to enter meets. If you do not volunteer for the required help needed as stated above a fee of $100 will be charged to your account at the end of the season., Without this credit card or ACH on file, your swimmer will not be entered into meets. If you fulfill your family volunteer requirements, we will not charge your account at the end of the season, if you do not fulfill your requirement the team will charge your account $100.
Fee Schedule: We try to maintain an excellent staff of talented and experienced adult coaches and talented college and high school age coaches. You fees enable us to pay them well for their hard work and dedication. The fees remain the same as last year. The non-pool member fee listed on the registration form is only available to families who joined the team before 2008 and were “grandfathered in” to the team as non-pool members when we allowed this on our team. Without our pool, we would not have a team. All swimmers joining the Kingfish team are required to be pool members unless you are under the grandfathered option. Any swimmer training with a club or Y team in addition to the Kingfish team is asked to attend a minimum one Kingfish practice session per week.
The Chevington Woods Pool is a non profit organization, it depends on membership dollars to operate and volunteers to help open and close the pool each season. The pool insurance requires that people using the pool be members or guests of members only, it is not a public pool. Complete your pool membership at www.chevingtonwoodspool.org. The Kingfish team is financially separated from the pool so you will need to join on the pool website. We check registrations on June 1st, you must join the pool for a minimum of June and July.
