Registration

 

 

Registration is an annual process for the Otters. It collects information for safety and communication, provides insurance for the team and coaches, and helps us manage the size and planning of practice groups.

 

Beginning September 1, 2022, USA Swimming started a new registration process for all members. All members are now required to register online. It is mandatory that all Otters members (MYWO) complete this process with the first two weeks of signing up for the team. It is a $68 fee per swimmer/non-athlete registration.

 

During Registration

  • Parents will need to choose a practice group for their children. If the swimmers have been on the team before, swimmers should enroll in the same practice group as the pervious season.
  • Moving practice groups requires both coach approval of the ability of the swimmers, and administrator approval that the practice groups has room for the swimmers.
  • If you create an account on the Otters website and log-in, you can register on-line. This is the only way to register. We cannot register you over the phone or in person, and the front desk cannot register you!
  • Once you have created your account and registered your swimmer, the website becomes your hub of information and keeps you connected to the team. It is how you register for meets and events, and how you find out all the latest news.

New Swimmers

  • New swimmers need to come to a tryout before registering, even if they are planning to be in the novice group on their first team
  • Once you have had been to a tryout and been given approval to sign up for a specific group, you can then go ahead and start the registration process. This is the only way to register. We cannot register you over the phone or in person. Once you have created your account and registered your swimmer, the website becomes your hub of information and keeps you connected to the team. It is how you register for meets and events, and how you find out all the latest news.

 

The Otters will not accept new swimmers (new swimmers can start at the beginning of a month) to the River and Sea groups in the months of February, March, and July so as to avoid disrupting the competitive postseason. The Preseniors and Senior groups will not accept any swimmers from January - March

 

Novice Otters can start at the beginning of each month, as long as there is room in the practice group.
