OCSC Priority Registration
Why do I need to register so early?
As a growing club, we are doing our best to strike a balance between swimmer demand and the pool space/time we have to work with. The sooner we know how many kids intend to swim, the better we can plan. Your cooperation with an earlier registration timeline will help us establish the practice schedule sooner and provide swimmers with a quality practice experience.
I only want to register for 1 of the Short Course sessions (SC1 or SC2) – how do I know what group to register my swimmer in?
Whenever in doubt, please contact Coach Jim or Coach Sarah for direction on group placement. Coach Sarah plans to email current LC2 swimmers interested in swimming either SC1 or SC2 with group placement direction on 8/7/18 – 1 day prior to Group 3 Priority registration
I only want to register my swimmer for SC2 – when do I pay?
When you register, you will need to pay a $100, non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot. The remaining registration fee due will be billed to your account on 11/1/18.
My 11 year old swimmer swam in the Squali group last spring, but plans to swim SC2 only – why are you directing me to register her in the Sand Shark group?
What we found last year was that swimmers consistently practicing together during SC1 are pretty well aligned by the end of SC1 session. Suddenly introducing SC2 only swimmers into those groups in November presented challenges. We would now like to bring all 9-12 year old SC2 only swimmers into the Sand Shark group. This will give them an opportunity to build up some swim endurance. Coaches will move SC2 only swimmers to different groups, as they see fit. NOTE: If a coach moves a swimmer up a group mid-sessions, families are responsible for the pro-rated price difference.
Will you open a SC2 only registration at a later date?
We do not expect to have any room after this registration – so if your swimmer would like to swim – please register now!
I think my swimmer is on the verge of moving up, which group should I register him in?
Whenever in doubt, please contact Coach Jim or Coach Sarah for direction on group placement. Coaches will make recommendations on swimmers moving up, as they see fit. NOTE: If a coach moves a swimmer up a group mid-sessions, families are responsible for the pro-rated price difference.
Why are there now early withdrawal/late registration fees?
Because our pool space/time is limited and precious! We desperately need you to register promptly – that gives us the ability to plan, staff and coordinate for the kids who want to swim. We are, literally, planning lane space & coaching time for every child that registers. If a swimmer were to quit mid-session – we’ve already planned pool space/coach time for that spot and have no opportunity to recoup the revenue.
