Welcome to the summer swim season for 2020.  It is time to start registration!  And good news – once again there are no fee increases!

Registration will once again be online for the summer of 2020. Registration opens today for Kigoos Swimmers (last summer) or current Tsunami swimmers  as well as any new swimmers (this is new!)

All the Registration info is located HERE on the website and the direct registration link is HERE.  The website info still says 2019, but it will be update shortly – the only changes are date changes for events.

Important for this year!

All registration documents are online and DO NOT NEED to be printed out and sent to the Registrar.  Paper documents ONLY include:  Parent Participation Cheque dated August 15, 2020 and a stamped, self-addressed, return envelope if you would like your cheque returned.  

NEW registrations may send proof of birthdate via paper copy OR scan and send via email or take a photo of the document and send via email. 

Registration volunteers and the environment appreciate your cooperation with this.

All documents are available on the Kigoos website under the registration tab and information is also on the front page of the website with costs for Summer 2020.  

T-SHIRT SIZES

Under Additional Purchases there is a space to request a t-shirt size for your child. Please be sure to indicate under YOUTH or ADULT size.  These are included for all registrations except Masters.

FAMILIES REGISTERING 3 OR MORE CHILDREN

If you are registering 3 or more children (this do not apply to Tater Tots), there is a special GROUP for each of the 3rd and 4th child.  This was done to allow for the correct amount to be charged for your registrations.  Please use the 3rd child group or 4th child group when registering 3 or more children. The 3rd and 4th child discounts apply to the youngest.

TSUNAMI DISCOUNT CODE

New families to Kigoos who joined Tsunami for the Fall/Winter 2019-2020 and wish to register for the Summer 2020 will receive a $200 credit towards your fees.  These codes will be emailed to those families. If the code applies to your family, and you do not receive the code, please email the Registrar at:  registrar@kigoos.com for the code. THIS APPLIES ONLY TO BRAND NEW FAMILIES WHO REGISTERED FOR FALL 2019.

COACHES

Please email the registrar for the codes for you to register.  All coaches MUST be registered BY April 30, 2020.

FUNDRAISING DISCOUNT CODES

Families registering more than one child will need to use the following discount codes to deduct the additional costs of the fundraising fee.  This is presently the only way to ensure each family only pays the fundraising cost once per family.  If registering more than one child, please enter this code:

2 swimmers—2KIDSFUNDRAISING

3 swimmers—3KIDSFUNDRAISING

4 swimmers—4KIDSFUNDRAISING

It will still charge you a $40 fundraising fee per registration.  Using the code for the number of registrations will give you a discount.  

Masters swimmers will need to use the code:

MASTERSFUNDRAISING 

This will discount the fundraising fee from your registration.

Registration for our Winter Swim Program is now open.   Hopefully many of our swimmers will continue with our winter program – Tsunami.  It is an amazingly good deal and a chance to continue to learn from a coaching staff led by Head Coach Emmy.  
Here are the details:

Registration for Tsunami is  online.  We will open registration for returning swimmers (and siblings) now, then, after Aug 22nd, registration will be opened for new members. Fees are $240 per swimmer for returning swimmers. The fees for new families will be $485 (this includes a $40 insurance fee and the $205 deposit towards the 2019 summer season). For newly registering siblings of current Kigoos members, the cost will be $280.  This will cover the insurance and registration costs.  

Families who wish to register siblings will need to attend the assessments on October 6th  (details below).  

Tsunami is run out of Watermania from the first weekend in October until the middle of March (the start of spring break).

Swim sessions will be on Saturdays and Sundays.  

We are using the same schedule we have used for the past two seasons.  We will have one hour of JD and then people will self-select into the other hours.   In early September we will put out a call for time sign-up. 

The tentative schedule is:

JD – 5:15 – 6:00

Juniors / Intermediates / Seniors  – 5:45- 7:00 or 6:45 – 8:00

Are you a winter swimmer looking for a way to keep swimming in the summer in a fun and competitive environment – we would love you to join Richmond Kigoos.

In order to best accommodate Winter (O Cat) Swimmers, we have reduced the fees knowing you will start late. The O Cat fee is $420 and the parent participation hours are also reduced to 15 hours.  We have also added specific year-end awards for O Cat swimmers.

Please check out our Registration Page for all of the details.  O Cat Registration is now available online.

Fees are $210 per swimmer for returning swimmers. The fees for new families will be $455 (this includes a $38 insurance fee and the $200 deposit towards the 2018 summer season) . For newly registering siblings of current Kigoos members, the cost will be $248.  This will cover the insurance and registration costs.

We are trying a different model for this year.  JD will still run as a group in the first hour with one coach per lane (likely from 4:45 – 6:00).  Then in the following hours (likely 6-8 PM) families will select which hour they would like to attend and swimmers will then be groups based on age / ability with coaches.  In early September we will put out a call for time sign-up once we see our early registration and know how many hours we will need.

The tentative schedule is:

JD – 4:45-6pm

Juniors / Intermediates / Seniors  – 5:45-7pm or 6:45-8pm

The coaching staff will be led by Head Coach Emmy, and other staff will be added based on enrollment.
