I’m Ready to Join COLA: What Do I Do Now?


Registration
If you are ready to be a part of our team year round the first thing you need to do to register is fill out the COLA Swimmer Info Sheet and Emergency Form. These can be found here on our website on the forms page under About COLA or at the pool. You will need to turn in your forms with your $75 USS Registration fee for Year Round Swimming.

Once you have your forms ready, come by the pool any day from 4:00-6:00 with your swimmers for an evaluation to decide what group they will be in. Once they have been placed in a group, they are more than welcome to try out a practice before turning in their forms.

· The USS Fee provides your swimmer with membership to USS swimming which is the governing swimming body in the USA. The fee insures your swimmer under USA swimming while they are in our practices or at competitions.

· No swimmer can swim on our team or in a competition under COLA
without current USS Registration.

· Checks for USS Registration need to be made out to COLA. We will
send all of your info along with a check from COLA to USA Swimming.


Other Important Info
When filling out the forms you will need to decide if you are going to be a once a week or more than once a week swimmer.

· Once a week swimming. Under this program you come once a week,
whatever day fits into your schedule this week. You can switch days
each week and you do not have to notify us. For example: You can come
Monday this week, Wednesday the next week and Friday the next week.

· More than Once a week swimming. Under this program you can come
however many times a week you want up to four. Once again you can
switch your days to fit your schedule that week and there is no need to
notify us.

· Switching from one option to the other. If you need to switch from once
a week to more than once a week or the reverse you can do so by letting
us know in writing by the 5th of the month. If you need to drop your amount or increase it you can do this anytime before the 5th of the month via email or mail.

Once all forms are filled out you can turn them in along with your USS Registration Fee at the pool. You can also download and fill out forms online and email them back to us.
