SWIM TEAM (6&UNDERS - 15/18s) & MINI MARLIN (AGES 3-6) REGISTRATION:

Swim Team & Mini Marlin Registration for the 2023 swim season opens February 15. To register, you must have a TeamUnify account. The 2023 swim season begins May 1 and goes through OMPA (July 28-30). The 2023 Mini Marlin season begins May 30 and concludes with our Mini Marlin Celebration on July 21.

 

The Mini Marlin program is designed for pre-competitive swimmers ages 3-6.  Our goal is to provide the best (and most fun!) learning environment for our young swimmers. The Mini Marlin program is not a learn-to-swim program. Any interested Mini Marlin must participate in the 8&Unders Evaluations.

 

MVP Swim Team & Mini Marlin registration is for Moraga Valley Swim and Tennis Club members only.  


8&UNDER EVALUATIONS:

Evaluations are for any swimmer who is 8 or younger and is new to MVP and/or did not compete in the 2022 swim season. *Evaluations will be held in late March. Stay tuned for specific dates/times and information on how to sign up for an evaluation!

REFUNDS

Swim Team and Mini Marlins is refundable up until May 15, 2023.  If you are still undecided about summer plans or joining the swim team or Mini Marlins this year, we encourage you to sign up anyways.  It helps the Swim Team Board and Coaches Trevor and Ashley in our planning, knowing how many swimmers to anticipate this summer. *Refunds are subject to a $50 service fee.

Commit/Decline to Swim Meets

MVP families should make every effort to maximize participation in meets.  Meets provide opportunities for individual growth and for our team spirit to shine through!  Please commit/decline to swim meets online as far in advance as possible (at the beginning of the season for any planned vacations, etc.)  If you are NOT committed to a meet by the registration deadline you will not be entered into the meet. NO EXCEPTIONS! 

Please understand that while we want to be as flexible as possible, failure to commit/decline to swim meets by the deadline creates a lot of extra work. Coaches need to submit team information in advance and greatly appreciate your cooperation in providing advance notice of swimmers’ participation. 

Because of the fees MVP is required to pay for invitational meet entries, failure to sign out of an invitational will result in a fine determined by the MVP swim team executive board. 

Deadlines for commiting/declining to meets can be found on the 2023 Swim Team Calendar

**Swim Team Commitments are NOT a preference (do not choose Wednesday Night or Saturday Morning). Assume your swimmer is needed at BOTH days and commit to them according to your availability.

  

HOW TO Commit/Decline to Swim Meets

 

On the homepage you will see the meet schedule towards the bottom.  Click on the “Edit Commitment” Button to the right of each meet.  From there, your active swimmer(s) should be listed. Click on each child's name and sign them in/out individually.  

  

As always, please do not hesitate to contact Jamie Delaney & Jenn Curran at [email protected] with any questions!

  

GO MVP!

**NOTE Returning families:

If your swimmers participated in 2022, please sign in with the account email address that you used last year before starting registration. Your swimmers are already in our system and are associated with your account.  You simply need to ensure that their information is current and make additions, if appropriate. You should not create new Account information. This way, we don't have to clean up duplicate information. 

**NOTE New families:

You will need to complete Account information for your family as well as Member information for each swimmer. Upon completion, your registration must first be approved by the team administrator. Typically this takes less than 24 hours. Once approved, you will receive an email and a sign-in password which you can use to access the site and sign out of swim meets as mentioned above.
