OPST MEMBERSHIP

OPST is planning for the 2022 USA Swimming Short Course Season and are hopeful that the team can add additional swimmers to the roster. There are limited spots. The current roster will have the first option for registration and any remaining open spots will be filled based upon interest following an evaluation with OPST coaches.

Please email [email protected] if you have a swimmer interested in competitive swimming. Include their swimming experience and age.

Thank you!
 


USA Swimming Registration 

All swimmers who register with OPST are required to be members of USA Swimming. The registration is completed by OPST. The Annual fee ($93) was included with the registration fee, however, if your family would like to be considered for a reduced membership fee, please complete the Outreach Application which reduces the cost of the annual membership with USA Swimming and offers assistance with meet fees. Email Joy if you plan to submit an Outreach application.

Safe Sport

In order for OPST to stay in compliance with our Safe Sport Recognized Team status athletes and parents must complete the Safe Sport Video annually. Follow instructions under Safe Sport; Athlete Protection Training. Bring a screenshot of the course completion to the pool the first week of practice.

All parents are asked to complete their specific Safe Sport Training, and all OPST atheltes age 13 and up are asked to complete the athlete training. 

In 2022, OPST will be up for Safe Sport renewal and will need everyone's help to maintain the program as an active Safe Sport Club. Thank you in advance.
