2020- 2021 SAQ Registration Information

Registration for the 2020 - 2021 season is now closed for our programs.

 

Please note the following important information due to the COVID-19 pandemic: 

  • For all programs, a $100 deposit is required along with a completed registration to hold a spot in our programs this year.  The deposit is non-refundable if a swimmer can be accommodated in the registered program and will be applied to their program fees owed to the club.  If a program is cancelled, the $100 deposit will be refunded.
  • All program fees provided are fees from our 2019/2020 season to give families an idea of the approximate costs of each program last year.  Due to COVID-19 Return to Sport Guidelines, program fees will most likely be higher than 2019 rates. We will endeavor to have fees communicated to families as soon as feasibly possible.
  • Recreational classes may have reduced spots available due to quotas based upon Covid-19 return to Sport Guidelines and how many swimmers will be allowed in the pool.
  • Aqua giggles may not run this season due to age of swimmers and their inability to comprehend social distancing. Parents should tentatively register and we will inform registrants in early September if program will run.
  • All competitive programs may be modified based upon Covid-19 Return to Sport Guidelines, thus the fee structure may change. It is suggested you register and come Fall if the fees do not meet your expectations you will have the opportunity to drop out.

All late registrations are subject to a $50 late registration fee.

Please Note:  Canada Artistic Swimming (and SAQ) follows the FINA definitions in determining which age category the swimmer falls under.  The swimmer's age is calculated as of December 31, 2021 so when registering, use the date that your child will be on December 31, 2021 to determine which program to register them in.

The Wardrobe Coordinator will be on hand at the first practices for those requiring wardrobe items including goggles, caps, and nose clips.  Fitting for SAQ suits for competitive athletes will be held in the first two weeks of September.  Exact dates and times will be communicated to those registered. 

Athletes can be registered in Aqua Giggles and Recreation programs by their parents. Athletes are selected to Competitive Teams by the Head Coach only.  If an athlete wants to enter the Competitive program directly, please contact Laurie Wachs, the Head Coach, at 306-281-5071 or [email protected] to discuss your athlete’s suitability for the program.
