Please Add your Credit Card Info

Posted by Kelly Joiner at Dec 10, 2017 8:19PM PST

This is part of that learning curve I mentioned earlier, as I did not realize your credit card information was needed in your profile right from the start – for those parents who have already completed the online registration for their kids but did NOT include any credit card information onto your account, can you please login to your account and add that information?

I am unable to transfer your child(ren) from the Waitlist to Enrolled until you have added this payment information, since payments are processed immediately when I officially Enrol your child(ren).

For those of you who need to pay with a cheque, you can contact me directly at to arrange for a time to meet.


Welcome to our New Website !!

Thank you for your patience as our swim club worked through the transition to a new website and online registration portal. There have been some speed bumps along the way that have slowed down our progress, but we are finally at the point where our new website and online registration portal are active and accessible.

While we don’t have as much information on here as we would like, it is a start and you should find the basic info to learn more about the Abbotsford Whalers Swim Club.

We still have some more behind-the-scenes work to complete (like finalizing our new email addresses), but will ensure you are updated with the info you need.

Looking forward to a great New Year as we embark on this new technological journey together!

The online registration portal and website are brand new for the Abbotsford Whalers Swim Club. There is a steep learning curve so your patience in this process is appreciated. Although anyone is able to complete the registration process, our first intake will ensure current and 2017 Summer Whalers athletes will be given priority for the January to April 2018 program.

If you are a current athlete in the Sept – Dec 2017 Winterfit program, your days and times will remain the same, as long as you select the exact same option for your registration into the Jan – Apr 2018 Winterfit program. If you wish to make any changes that requires additional swim / dive / waterpolo times, then your request will be processed after all other current athlete registrations are completed. If you are reducing your swim / dive / waterpolo times, then that request can be processed immediately.

For this first round of registration, all registrations will be waitlisted and manually approved. Once your registration has been approved, you will receive an email with a link that will complete the registration payment to confirm your athlete will continue with the 2018 Winter Maintenance Program (Jan – Apr 2018). You must add your credit card info in order to have the registration manually completed by the Registrar in order to complete the online process. If you are registering more than one athlete, you will have the option to add another registrant once you continue to the payment option – check the top of the screen and you will see the total price + add another registrant. This options allows you to continue to register more athletes without having to complete the entire process from the start again.

If you require alternative payment options (ie. you don’t have a credit card and need to write a cheque), please contact the current Registrar at

Any new families wishing to join the Abbotsford Whalers Swim Club will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis and only if there are any spots available. Our swim club is currently near-capacity and priority will be given to current and returning 2017 Summer Abbotsford Whalers athletes. The returning 2017 Summer Whaler athlete priority access does not include those who swam in the 2017 Summer Jr. Whalers program.

Again, this is a brand-new process for us and we are still learning so anticipate there will be some mistakes made. We will do our best to minimize them as much as possible, but we are only human and we truly do appreciate your patience and understanding as we pilot this new process for the start of our 2018 Winterfit Program. Our hope is we will be able to work through any issues that arise in the first few months and ensure a smoother process for the 2018 Summer Competitive program.
