High School Swimming

Welcome to Kraken Swimming! We appreciate your consideration for joining us. We are very excited to start our 6th season as high school coaches this fall!

Registrations will open on Wednesday, September 1 and close Friday, November 12.

Kraken Competition Team members: If you are registered for the Competition Team, you DO NOT need to register for high school separately. Your membership with the Competition Team already includes high school swimming.

There will be an informational meeting on Wednesday, October 20 at 6:00 pm in the Hubbard Elementary School cafeteria for swimmers and parents. It is encouraged that all families both new and returning attend the meeting.

Practices will begin on Monday, November 1.

Team Fees

Team fees are separated into 2 categories: Subsidized Schools and Non-Subsidized Schools.

Subsidized Schools: the high school cover the team fees for their swimmers. (Brookfield, Hubbard)

Non-Subsidized Schools: the high school does not cover the team fees. Families are responsible for paying the monthly fees for their swimmers. (Girard, Lakeview, Liberty, McDonald)

Team fees are 4 payments of $100 per month per swimmer. The first month's fees will be charged at the time of registrations. The remaining 3 payments will be charged on December 1, January 1, and February 1.

All payments must be made electronically via the team website called Sportsengine "SE Payments". A credit card (Visa, Master Card or Discover) must be kept on file for monthly dues and meet registration fees. You may use a reloadable prepaid credit or debit card.

Payments will be charged on the 1st of each month to the credit card listed on your account. A $25 late fee will be assessed if payment cannot be processed by the 7th of the month.

*If you wish to remove your swimmer from the program you must fill out a Disenrollment Form by the 25th of the current month. Otherwise you will be billed for the following month. Forms are located under the TOOLS tab.*

Registration Fees

Registrations: $50

A non-refundable, $50 per member registration fee will be charged at the time of registrations. This fee covers the cost of team t-shirts, swim caps, and team functions.

Registration fees will be charged for each swimmer regardless if their team is Subsidized or Non-Subsidized.

Swim Meets

All swim meets are MANDATORY for all our high school swimmers. Swimmers are allowed to swim a maximum of 4 events per meet of which only 2 may be individual events. Events will be picked by the coaches.

Some of the large invitational meets that we will attend charge an entry fee for each swimmer. Meet fees will be charged to the credit card listed on each families account unless the school chooses to cover the cost.

The Meet Schedule will be released in October before the first day of practice. Please note that the meet schedule is subject to change throughout the season.

Gear

At the beginning of the season, members will receive a team t-shirt and 2 team caps.

Team suits can be purchased through the Aquatic Outfitters link located on the home page of our website. Each school has their own suit in school colors.

Team warm-ups can be purchased through the SwimOutlet link located on the homepage of our website. These warm-ups are optional.

At swim meets, swimmers are required to wear their team suits, team caps, and racing goggles. We recommend swimmers wear their team warm-ups (if available) or school apparel when on the pool deck.

At practice, swimmers are required to wear a one-piece, competition style swim suit, and racing goggles. Scuba masks, two-piece suits, and board shorts are prohibited. Anyone with long hair is also required to wear a swim cap. Team caps are preferred but not required.

Training equipment such as fins, kick boards, and hand paddles are all provided by the Hubbard Pool for swimmers to use. Swimmers are more than welcome to bring their own training equipment if they so choose.
