Please note the following very important details while registering.
On the first page of the 2013-2014 TEAM REGISTRATION PAGE, please include/update all alternate email addresses where you would like to receive important team communications (e.g. newsletters). You may want to include your swimmers email address. Also please be sure to include all relevant information even if it’s not showing as a required field (e.g., parent/guardian information).
On the second page of the 2013-2014 TEAM REGISTRATION PAGE, after you select your swimmer for registration,
· Please update the Payment Option selection that you would like to use this year (Payment Plan or Pay in Full). It will automatically bill you the option that you selected last year unless you change it.

· After you click the radio button for your swimmer’s registration group, please be sure to scroll to the bottom and click the button, “Register the Member to the Selected Group”. Otherwise, you will not be able to complete the registration.
Olympic Way swimmers, if you have participated in the OW program in the past and have been swimming summer league or taking swim lessons, you may want to be reevaluated during the tryouts to see if that OW is still right for you. (The 2nd day of tryouts, 8/29, is usually less crowded.) Please contact Coach Jeff, 203-438-3951, after August 19th to let him know that you will be doing this. Also, if you have been recommended to the competitive team (Power Up) by a coach who is no longer on the staff, please call coach Jeff to discuss your placement. OW begins Sept. 17th.
