Olympic Way Unique Registration.

For swimmers invited to Olympic Way this season, we will offer three training blocks. Close to the end of each block, the coaches will reassess the swimmer's performance, skill development, attitude and behaviour to determine if they are eligible to move up, if they should continue on the following Olympic Way training block, or suspend the activity.

Every swimmer must pay $100 for the Club registration fee and $52.55 to register to Swim Canada and Swim Ontario. This fee only needs to be paid for the first time they register each season: a swimmer invited to the first block will not have to pay this again if they continue for block two or three. We will charge every family the applicable amount once the Invoice comes in.

The training blocks are as follows:

Training Block 1

Training Block 2

Training Block 3

Period

September 12th - December 18th

Swim Meet Fees

Swim meet fees are according to the meet package stipulated cost per event and entry fee per swimmer and will be billed on the week after the competition to individual swimmer accounts.  

When swimmers commit to the event, and the entry deadline has passed, they will be charged whether they attend the competition or not, for any reason, including medical reasons.

All swim meets will have a GSH $11.50 administration fee to help cover the cost of attending swim meets.

Coaches will be responsible for choosing events for swimmers attending a GSH-approved swim meet. The GSH Head Coach determines which swim meets the team attends. The final decision will be up to the lead coach. Parents and swimmers are encouraged to consult with their coach about what events they would like to swim at each swim meet after choosing the "attend" button in our online sign-up system.


Family Participation Points & Fee

The Goulbourn Sea Hawks Club relies on family involvement to effectively run all Club and group social activities, swim meets and time trials (including set up and execution), fundraising activities, sponsorship solicitation, and community outreach and advertising. 

Each family with a competitive swimmer (applies to all groups except for Olympic Way, which is pre-competitive) will be expected to participate in volunteer activities. We welcome all family members as volunteers. As part of the Family Participation Program, each family must have one adult qualified at a minimum of timer level at swim meets. New families to the Club must complete Level I (Timer) within the first year of Membership with Goulbourn Sea Hawks. Completion of Level I (Timer) requires an official clinic (in person or via webinar, which takes approximately 1 hour) and two successful deck evaluations (timing at a swim meet). The clinic training and on-deck evaluations will contribute toward the participation point requirements for each family.

Each Family Volunteer Points Obligation is 24 Points or $600, which is charged at the end of the season. For every volunteer point earned by the family, $25 will be subtracted from the $600 balance owing.
