Registrations for Spring
2013 now open!
ALL NEW swimmers
to the iSwim AGE 10 AND UNDER who have never swam with either Coach Lori or Coach Lisa must be
cleared by a coach for registration approval. This is a fitness swimming group that requires good competency in
at least 2 strokes and the ability to complete a minimum of 50 meters without assistance. If new, please do not register
until you have arranged for a 10 minute skill demonstration with either Coach Lisa or Coach Lori. Contact either coach in
August for demonstration at the JCC or Steiner Ranch prior to the team starting. The minimum age is 7 (as of the
first of each month) - NO EXCEPTIONS. Sept and Oct will fill up FAST, so don't wait. There are NO EXCEPTIONS made and
NO REFUNDS given once registered.
Registrations for the iSwim Swim Team can ONLY be done online at www.coachlisa.org in advance of attending
your first practice. Unregistered swimmers will not be allowed in the pool due to liability reasons. This group
is a separate entity from the summer league Piranhas team and operated by TriHouse Training, LLC. It is not operated
by the JCC or their summer league Piranhas team. No manual registrations will be accepted by coaches or at the front
desk of the JCC – all registrations must be done online at www.coachlisa.org. All payments must be made with credit card online – personal checks and
cash are not accepted.
NEW vs. RENEWAL REGISTRATIONS: All registrations for the month of September are considered new registrations.
Even past Off-Season swimmers need to be fully registered as new swimmers the first month they swim in the 2012-13 Season,
to include all required information (i.e., current contact information of 2 parents, acceptance of liability waiver, medical
information, and emergency contact information). After the first month swam THIS SEASON (2012-13), you may utilize our
"RENEWAL" option when registering to save time (no extra questions are asked since we have already captured this
information in our database).
