2021-2022 Bolles Sharks Registration Information

Peter Verhoef

Bolles Swimming Families,

We are approaching our annual registration process for the 2021-2022 swimming season.  We are committed to our mission of elevating performances, elevating fulfillment, and elevating TEAM.  This year has been a challenge. You remain committed and compassionate, and we thank you for being a part of it.

Updated information on our membership program is HERE.  To be a member family of the Bolles School Sharks team, we ask that families agree to our policies, pay registration and coaching fees, and serve at our hosted meets.  For 2021-22 we have made changes to registration fees, coaching fees, and some membership policies.  You can read the complete handbook at the link above, we have included a summary of changes at the end of this email.

As with any change, we wish to be open, transparent, and honest with each family.  Our mission is to impact people, and to do so we need to be financially sound and organized administratively.  If you have any questions or concerns about our program, please reach out to us.  Coach Peter Verhoef  ([email protected]), Coach Dale Porter ([email protected]), and Carole Emerson ([email protected]) are all available to help with any questions or concerns.

Each summer the Bolles School Sharks register or re-register members through an online registration process.  Registration confirms or updates family information and records agreement to updated policies found in the 2021-2022 BSS TEAM HANDBOOK.  The Bolles School Sharks are unique in that we are operated by The Bolles School; therefore, members are required to follow the policies of the Sharks program and the Bolles School.  Families and members will be held accountable for conduct, financial dues, and policies related to safety, health, and well-being. 

  • Registration for current members begins July 1, 2021 and should be completed by August 16, 2021. 
  • CURRENT MEMBERS will register by August 16th, and must be completed before practice starts. 
  • NEW FAMILY REGISTRATION opens July 9th.  Senior and late night families: roster space is at capacity or very limited. Your registration will be in "pending approval" status until August 9th. If we are not able to approve your swimmer's registration due to space limitations, all registration fees will be refunded. 
  • Bolles Varsity Swimming practice begins August 9.
  • Late Night Senior, Middle School, & Age Group practice begins August 16.

Bolles Membership Changes for 2021-2022

  • Registration with the Bolles Sharks will include an enhanced apparel package: 4 T Shirts (including Blue and Orange ‘tradition’ Shirts), 2 Caps, and a Team Practice Suit.  Apparel items will be available for pick up in early September.
  • Registration fees for the Sharks team will increase by $15. 
  • Annual coaching fees will increase between 4-5% for each practice group.  Fees are set to round monthly payment numbers for consistent billing, updated costs can be seen in the handbook.  It is common practice to increase fees 1-3% annually, we implemented no increases last year due to the uncertain nature of the year.  This increase (4-5%) will enable the Sharks club to maintain the program staff and structure we believe provides the best quality experience to each family.
  • The Multi-Swimmer Discount for 4 or more swimmers has changed to 30% and will be adjusted over the next seasons to appropriately match discount steps.
  • Athletes who suspend their account (for dual-sports, seasonal breaks, etc.), will be wait-listed, and until roster space is available. 30-Day Notice is required for any change to your membership. Membership changes must be provided in writing.
  • The Meet Service commitments have stayed consistent with our past membership requirements.  Please expect a full complement of hosted meets to work at this coming year.
  • The Waivers and Agreements (the fine print) for joining the Bolles Sharks has been updated.
