Kigoos Registration is back Online

March 10th, 2016 | Posted by kigooswm in Notifier | Registration - (Comments Off on Kigoos Registration is back Online)

Thanks for your patience as we continue to adjust to the online registration system and the registrar’s learning curve is a steep, but very welcome one!  Registration is now ready for families with more than one child and you should not be overcharged.

 

Please use the registration link on the Kigoos website.  If you have more than 1 child to register please use the discount codes listed below as you register your children. There is a small button near the top right of the registration page that says “Add a swimmer”.  Please click on that button each time you wish to add a swimmer. When it asks for a discount code, use the one below appropriate for the number of swimmers you are registering.

 

2 swimmers—2KIDS

3 swimmers—3KIDS

4 swimmers—4KIDS

 

It will still charge you a $40 fee per registration.  Using the code for the number of registrations will give you a discount.  The discounts will be as below:

 

2 children will discount $40 so you will only pay $40

3 children will discount $80 so you will only pay $40

4 children will discount $120 so you will only pay $40

 

Overall the registration seems to be going fairly smoothly with this minor hiccup.  A reminder the Registrar is out of town March 9-22.  Response to email will be limited.
