Register for Tsunami – Winter Swimming – New and Returning Swimmers!

September 4th, 2017 | Posted by kigooswm in Registration - (Comments Off on Register for Tsunami – Winter Swimming – New and Returning Swimmers!)

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.

Families who wish to register siblings will need to attend the assessments on October 1st (details below).

Tsunami is run out of Watermania from the first weekend in October until the end of March.

Swim sessions will be on Saturdays and Sundays.

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.

For new swimmers the assessments will be held at Watermania on Sunday, October 1st from 4-5 PM.
