Welcome to the Tidalwaves Swim Team Electronic Registration platform for our 2021/22 Winter technique/conditioning focused programs. We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning families and members. If your family already has a Tidalwaves' Team Unify account, please use that to register.  If your family is new to Tidalwaves you will receive a Team Unify account once you are registered.  This will be your login id for your family.  Registering for our Winter program as a new family will give you priority early registration for our 2022 Spring/Summer Season. 
 

NOTES FOR 2021/22 Winter Swim Program (November 8 - February 18)

  1. Our Winter Swim program is offered at Redwood High School, Monday thru Friday.  Saturday practices November 13 and 20, and December 4, 11, and 18 will be offered at College of Marin, Kentfield.   There are no Saturday practices after December 18th.
  2. Please click here for our Winter Swim Schedule.  Please note that Tidalwaves schedule revolves around Redwood water polo and swim team practice and season schedules. While Redwood's water polo seasons (both boys and girls) are likely to be complete by November 8th, there is some chance that one or the other team will go a week longer (less chance they will go two weeks longer). In those cases, our swim schedule will start after they are done with practice for the day.  That schedule is included. Likewise, Feb 7 - Feb 18th is Redwood swim season and our practices will be limited to 3 days per week and will begin after Redwood swim practices are complete.  All schedules are included and you will be informed by email which schedule to follow as soon as we know.  
  3. All NEW 8 & Unders are required to be assessed for team readiness (i.e. able to follow instructions in a group, able to swim 25 yards with side breathing profiency) before completing registration into the program.  Please register for an assessment here by selecting the "NEW 8 & Under Assessment" group when asked which group to register to (a $10 charge).  Coach Marie will do assessments on Saturday November 6th and Sunday November 7th from 12:15 - 1:15pm. However, you must be registered before Marie can do an assessment.  At the conclusion of registration (on the Registration Success page), there is a Sign Up Genius link that you can use to select an assessment time slot.  If you go by this link, please email [email protected] and we will send you the link.  Each slot is 15 minutes and coach Marie will assess no more than 4 swimmers at a time.
  4. If your swimmer has been previously assessed as 'team ready' by Marie, you may register into the 'Returning 8 & Under' group even if you have not yet participated in a program.
  5. We do not offer a tadpole program in the Winter.
  6. If you are unsure which 9-11 age group to register into (More or Less Experienced), please contact coach Marie at [email protected] Generally, More Experienced have swum at 'team level' for 2+ years and Less Experienced are newer to the program.
  7. There is no volunteer obligation for this program, nor are there any swim meets during this program.  This program offer swimmers a chance to focus on technique and continuity to get ready for the 2022 Spring Marin Swim League Season that starts February 28th.
  8. Your child is not required to swim with Tidalwaves in the Spring if s/he swims in the Fall or Winter, (but we sure hope they'll love it enough that they will want to!).
  9. Fins are required for all Tidalwaves programs.  Please see this flyer for specifics on the type of fins to buy (FINIS floating), or for feet larger than a size 5, Aquasphere Alpha.
  10. We know that sometimes children try swimming for a week and decide they don't like it.  We are happy to process refunds up until November 16th, 2021 (less a $40 processing fee).  After that date no refunds will be given--no exceptions.
