Registration 2019

Congratulations and welcome to the Orland Otters Swim Team family! We believe that parents play a crucial role to the success of the team. Parents serve as role models and their children emulate their behavior and attitude. Be aware of this and strive to be positive role models. Most importantly, show good sportsmanship at all times toward coaches, officials, opponents, and the swimmers. But above all…the most important thing you can do as the parent of a swimmer is to love and support your child, both in and out of the pool. This support is a key factor in fostering a love of the sport as well as contributing to the child's individual success in the pool.

By registering your child, you agree to pay for the following:

  • This fee helps to pay for pool and rental fees, coaches salaries, awards, equipment and more!!
  • $150 registration fee per swimmer ($99.25 to Orland Otters + $50.75 USA Swimming & Sierra Nevada Swim Individual membership)


  •  $121 registration fee per swimmer ($99.25-Orland Otters + $21.75 USA Swimming & Sierra Nevada Swim Flex membership


  • $107.25 registration fee per swimmer ($99.25-Orland Otters + $8.00 USA Swimming & Sierra Nevada Swim Outreach* membership)
  • * If you qualify for  Cal Works, Covered California, Homeless Coalition, Individual Free Lunch School Program, Section 8 Housing, or SNAP you will pay a reduced rate of $8 for the USA Swimming & Sierra Nevada membership. Please bring proof of eligibility to registration.
  • $150 volunteer deposit (details below)

Volunteer Deposit

For the upcoming swim season, each family is required to submit a volunteer deposit in the amount of $150 at the time of registration. The Orland Otter Swim Team is a non-profit organization that relies almost entirely on the voluntary support of its parents to carry out the many jobs necessary to provide a quality swim experience for its participants and families throughout the season.

The intent of the volunteer deposit is two-fold:

1. Encourage greater participation among parents in the operations of the team.

2. For parents who choose to pay the deposit rather than volunteer, it provides funding necessary to provide services that would otherwise be carried out by volunteer(s).

Volunteer deposits will be returned to parents who perform at least 20 hours of volunteer work. Volunteer hours may be accomplished by helping with home meets and/or the Otter Invitational (snack bar, ribbon table, hospitality, running, meet set-up, meet clean-up, Fireworks Booth, etc.). Families who do not complete their 20 hours of volunteering will not have their $150 family deposit returned.

Fireworks booth shifts.

The Orland Otter Fireworks Booth is our BIGGEST and most $-PROFITABLE-$ fundraiser. It is essential to have it fully staffed during our sales week to keep our swimmers fees low and our FUN high!!!  Your participation in working a shift is greatly appreciated and needed to keep the Otters going strong all summer long.  Please mark these dates in your calendar, June 29, 2018 through July 4, 2018, and sign up for a shift, many hands make light work.

Volunteers are responsible for keeping track of their time in the Volunteer Hours Log that is available during practice and meets.

Contact an Orland Otter board member with questions you might have regarding volunteer hours.
