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. If you pay online, please bring your $250 parent hour check to the first day of practice.
2) Register your swimmer with USA Swimming using the link under REGISTRATION>USA Swimming LINK. https://omr.usaswimming.org/omr/welcome/BE639E99585D49
You need to create a log in. You will receive a USA Swim Card Number. The club code for our team is SN-ORLN.
3) Get an account on https://ome.swimconnection.com to enter your swimmer into upcoming meets. OME stands for Online Meet Entry. Help page: OME swimconnection instructions.
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.
