Welcome to the Arden Park Dolphins Registration Page. The information here will answer many questions regarding what you can expect of the 2019 summer swim season. If you have additional questions, please contact Arden Park Dolphins Registrar Jennifer Laing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2019 summer swim season will begin on Monday, April 1, 2019 and continue through the end of July 2019. A schedule for the season has been posted under the “Meet Schedule” tab.
RETURNING SWIMMERS - January 14 – January 27, 2019 - ONLINE REGISTRATION
Registration for returning swimmers will begin online at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, January 14, 2019, and end at midnight on Sunday, January 27, 2019. Returning swimmers who register during this time period will be guaranteed a place on the 2019 summer swim team. Returning swimmers who do not register during this time will forfeit their returning swimmer status and must register in person on February 2, 2019. Please see the “Returning Swimmers” page under the “Registration Tab” for more information.
Please note that participation in the prior Arden Park March Clinics and/or Fall Swim Programs do not confer “returning swimmer” status to a swimmer for the 2019 summer season registration.
NEW SWIMMERS - February 2, 2019 - IN PERSON at Arden Park
For all new swimmers (siblings of a returning swimmer, please email email@example.com), registration will be in person at the Arden Park Clubhouse, located at 1000 La Sierra Drive, on Saturday, February 2, 2019. Parents may come at any time to receive a number for their registration time period. Numbers will be handed out starting at 7:45 a.m. Please see the “New Swimmers” page under the "Registration" tab for more information on registering a new swimmer.
2019 Registration Fees
Registration fees for the 2019 summer season:
$275 for the first swimmer,
$220 for the second sibling swimmer,
$175 for each additional sibling swimmers,
$125 for High School age swimmers
High school swimmer registration fees apply to those swimmers CURRENTLY attending high school at the time of registration (in high school for the 2018-19 school year). A non-high school sibling of a high school swimmer is considered the first swimmer and will be subject to a registration fee of $275. Families with only high school swimmers are exempt from job responsibilities.
There will be no refunds of Arden Park Registration Fees after April 8, 2019.
The Arden Park Dolphins Swim Team prides itself on well-run meets, which is due entirely to our family volunteers! Each family will be required to sign up for a specific number of team volunteer jobs during the season. The exact number of jobs will be determined after registration. Jobs for the Conference Championship Meet, held at the end of July are additional jobs that all families attending Champs will be required to sign-up for.
Each year we strive to ensure each family contributes by fulfilling their share of the jobs. Yet, inevitably, a few families simply do not complete their job commitment, resulting in more work for the other families. Therefore, we ask each family to provide a check for $200 as a “jobs deposit”. This check is due at the time of registration. The check will only be deposited if the family does not fulfill its job commitment by the end of the summer season.
Families with ONLY high school swimmers do not need to submit a job's deposit check and are also exempt from job requirements.
NorCal Swim League Registration
The Arden Park Dolphins Swim Team is a member of the NorCal Swim League in the Eureka Conference for the 2019 season. In addition to registering with the Arden Park Dolphins, each swimmer must also be registered with the NorCal Swim League and pay the $15 registration fee in order to participate in all league activities including swim practice and swim meets. The $15 NorCal Swim League Registration fee is paid directly to the League (see "NorCal Swim League" page under the "Registration" tab for more information). Please note the NorCal Swim League registration fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.
