Registration Opens December 1 for WinterFit Program Jan-Apr 2018

Posted by Abbotsford Whalers on Nov 30 2017 at 09:03PM PST

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.
