Swim Team Registration

Registration can be done at the pool the first Saturday of the spring 2018 season (May 26) between noon and 2 pm or at any practice prior to June 8 so long as all materials are provided before a swimmer enters the pool.  Please print and complete documents to be handed to Keri Sauer or Dan Krane at the time of registration.  We can not allow any swimmers to begin practice without completed paperwork.

We realize that some schools will still be in session until June.  But, please have your swimmer registered by Friday, June 8 even if they will not begin to practice until the following week.  This will allow us to make sure practice times are correct and plan lineups for meets.

All swimmers must have paperwork completed and turned in before attending practice!  

Anyone interested in purchasing additional team t-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts, etc we will have order forms available at registration and during the first week of practice.

Silicone Oak Creek swim caps will be available for $10.  A limited number of latex caps will be available for sale for $5 each.

We are looking forward to a great 2018 swim team season!  As we gear up for the season, we are again looking for team sponsors.  It’s a relatively inexpensive way for businesses to advertise and it helps support our youth sports program!  Last year we had over 150 shirts printed and over 475 families that frequently check our website (www.oakcreekswimclub.org) which results in your business logo being viewed not only by our members, but also by every perspective new member since it is displayed on every page of our website!  Your business logo is also printed on the team shirt that our swimmers wear at meets and all through the summer.  Following are the three levels:

 

Sponsors

We need sponsors! Sponsors are very important to keeping fees low for our team members. Sponsors will have the option to add their information to a team shirt.

Gold Level Sponsorship: $250 will get a logo on the OCSC website and large logo on the swim team shirt.  Also, any swimmer that gets a $250 sponsor will swim for free (limit to 1 free swimmer per family).

Silver Level Sponsorship: $100 will get a logo on the website and name (not logo) listed on the team shirt.

Bronze Level Sponsorship: $50 will get the name listed on the website or the team shirt.

Please contact Keri Sauer at sauerswim@gmail.com or Dan Krane at dan.krane@wright.edu
