New & Returning Swimmer Registration: SAVE THE DATE!
Dates: April 1 – April 26
Fees: $225 returning swimmers / $275 new swimmers*
Note: You may notice that these fees have increased. It is always our intention to keep registration fees low. Note: that we have not increased our registration fees in several years, despite rising costs.
*Why do new swimmers pay more? Answer: New swimmers have 6 additional practices at the start of the season
Update to Deposit Policies (for families who do not meet their volunteer hours for the season):
As a returning family, you know the existence of our team is reliant on volunteers. We ask that families commit to 10 volunteer hours and B champs each year, and we are fortunate that most of our families meet and supersede this requirement. However, we are experiencing an increase of families preferring to forfeit their $400 deposit rather than volunteer the 10 hours. Therefore, for the longevity of the team, the board felt it necessary to make the following update to the deposit policy:
- Beginning in 2020, if a family does not meet the 10 hour volunteer requirement, they will forfeit their $400 deposit (as usual). However, for the NEXT year, if that family decides to register again for the Sharks then their required deposit would increase to $800.
- Families who do not meet their volunteer hours for 2 years consecutively, will NOT be eligible to join the Sharks swim team the next year.
- It is the Board’s sincere hope to never have to enforce this policy.
Winter Conditioning, Dive Clinic, Klahanie Swim Lessons: You may have seen an email come out from the HOA regarding winter conditioning & dive clinics. Note: those swimming activities are offered directly from the HOA and are not affiliated with Klahanie Swim team. Should you wish to register, you would do so through their processes.
