Credit card payments will be the ONLY form of payment accepted. No service charges will be applied 

  • Volunteer Declaration: As in past years, we ask each family to declare areas they are willing to volunteer.  We are asking parents to submit their selections for where they would like to volunteer (e.g., Team parents, hospitality, etc.) by completing the survey. Your swimmer's registration WILL NOT be activated until a response has been received via this link. The survey can be completed any time or within 2 days of completing the registration process.
  • VOLUNTEER LINK: 2023 Volunteer Participation

2023 registration fees will include the following: 

  • One to two practices per day depending on age group. Practice Schedules will be released mid-March. All practices are held at Elk Grove Aquatic Center after 4 pm. Practices are 30-75 minutes depending on the age/ability of swimmer(s).
  • Each family will be required to volunteer 20 hours at our meets and events. 
  • Volunteer Requirements: Similar to past years, families will have a mandatory volunteer requirement that can be achieved in a variety of ways. Please remember the requirement of our Parent Volunteer Policy which states: 
    • "Each family is required to volunteer for twenty (20) hours during the regular swim season and for two (2) shifts at Championships (provided the family attends).” 
    • 2023 Volunteer Participation
  • The penalty for not completing the required hours will be $30.00 per missing hour and $50 per shift for Championships.

The 2023 payment plan is as follows(READ CAREFULLY): Charges will be split into payments/swimmer @ $135/payment ($102.50 for HS Swimmer). The first payment will be will be processed at the time of registration, with the remaining payments processed on 3/15, 4/15, and 5/15/23. (If you register later than any of these dates, you will have to pay in less increments. We cannot extend the payment plan past the scheduled dates. For example, if you register April 1st, you would need to make the initial payment and the March payment at the time of registration. The final 2 installments would be charged on 4/15 and 5/15)  If at anytime we are unable to process the card on file, your swimmer(s) will be unable to attend practices and meets until payment has been recieved. If your card is declined more than once, payment-in-full will be required for your swimmer to continue with the team. PLEASE READ PAYMENT PLAN DETAILS CAREFULLY.  SINCE WE ARE SO LATE INTO THE REGISTRATION PERIOD, PAYMENTS HAVE BEEN SPLIT TO MAKE SURE ALL ACCOUNTS ARE PAID IN FULL BEFORE THE FIRST MEET:

The first monthly installment of $270/swimmer (or $205.00 for HS Swimmers) will be charged at the time of registration. Additional charges in the amount of $270 /swimmer ($205.00 for HS swimmers) will be charged to this card on 5/15/2023. If at any time we are unable to process your card, your swimmer will be unable to attend practice until your balance due is paid. If your card is declined twice, your account will need to be paid in full for the season immediately. Once you have completed registration, an email will be sent to you within 24 hours. Please follow the instructions sent to you. Failure to confirm your payment plan details and add a card to your file within 48 hours will result in your swimmer(s) spot being given to the next registrant on the waiting list.
