Summer 2018 Registration 

Executive members and our head coach for swimming have worked hard to secure pool time for our Summer swimming program.  We have had difficulties securing pool time for Synchronized Swimming and Water Polo.  In an effort to support these programs, the Coquitlam Sharks have agreed to train Neptunes polo players and synchro swimmers when registered as Haney Neptunes.  The benefits to this approach include:

  •  The Haney Neptunes can remain a multi-discipline club on paper,
  •  Synchro swimmers can continue to work on figures and routines.  They will have the benefit of pool time and instruction from a qualified coach, and participate at Provincials as Coquitlam Sharks,
  •  Polo Players will have an opportunity to play on age appropriate teams, and participate in summer tournaments, Regionals and Provincial Championships as Coquitlam Sharks.
  •  Registered Neptunes accessing Water Polo and Synchro programs with the Coquitlam Sharks are eligible to attend all Shark club family events such as Fun Night, Interclub swim meet (Sharks on Sharks), Survivor week events 
  •  Registered Neptunes accessing Water Polo and Synchro programs with the Coquitlam Sharks do not need to participate in their volunteer program

Please note at this time we do not have pool times and practice schedules available for the Polo and Synchro Programs.  The Neptunes Registrar will provide contact information  for those registered to the Registrar of the Coquitlam Sharks for distribution within their club.  

 

Included in this email is a copy of the scheduled pool times booked for Neptunes swimmers in order  to assist families in planning their summer.  Please note that the attached schedule represents the schedule times only and groups will be determined two weeks prior to the beginning of our summer program.

  •  The Hammond Pool afternoon time blocks are the amount of time that the Neptunes have booked
  •  We will assist families and make some exceptions to practice times for April 30 to June 29 in order to keep each family’s trips to Hyde Creek at a minimum. We will consider the possibility of siblings swimming together in some practices to reduce overall travel to Hyde Creek. These exceptions will need to make sense as practices need to remain effective and efficient for all swimmers.

Please note that the attached schedule represents the schedule times only and group will be determined two weeks prior to the beginning of our summer program

 

Registration Fees:

We recognize that the pool closure has left our membership in a difficult position, and that the summer schedule may not be ideal for some families.  The Executive hopes that the measures we have provided will keep our Neptune family together.  To further that goal, we have also reduced our Registration Fees as shown here:

  •  Swim only: $350
  •  Polo only: $300
  •  Synchro only: $300
  •  Swim & Synchro: $450
  •  Swim & Polo: $450
  •  6 & Under: $275 
  •  Hammond: $225 (Hammond Pool only, this program does not participate in our fundraising program)
  • Masters: $75 (Pay the BCSSA Regional and Provincial Fees and register for swim meets, no formal training/pool time available)
  • July Start: $260 (with polo $340; with synchro $340)
