NEW Registration Instructions
Welcome to Swimming!
USA Swimming is the national governing body for the sport, the Sierra Nevada Swimming is our Local Swimming Community (LSC), and Orland Otters Swim Team (SN-ORLN) is our local non-profit organization that operates our swim team program.
In brief, parents need to complete Steps 1, 2, and 3 below:
1) Register your swimmer with Orland Otters under “Register Now” button.
2) Register your swimmer with USA Swimming using www.swim-smarter.com. You will receive a USA Swim Card Number. The club code for our team is SN-ORLN.
Help page: swim-smarter instructions. The webpage has changed a little, but it should help get you through the process.
4) Get an account on the www.swimconnection.com to track your swimmers registration and all past swimming results. (Optional, but helpful)
Your swimmer(s) “exists” in all of this electronic world with a fourteen character USA Swimming Swim Card Number which consists of portions of first and last name, birthday, and sometimes other random characters needed to keep the User ID unique nationwide. There are links on the SwimConnection website Account screen to “renew” annual USA Swimming registration for existing swimmers or to “register” a new swimmer.
Note: Research the meets before you enter your swimmer; entry fees are not refundable. Check with the coach or other qualified team parent about which meets to enter and how if you are not sure. You can view the “meet sheet” online for information prior to entering. You can enter events and then scratch them at the meet, but again, there are no refunds.
