News and Announcements
Registration Link for Waterpolo Winter Session is NOW OPEN and will remain open throughout the season
The Abbotsford Whalers Coed Waterpolo Winter Session for 15 and Under athletes is scheduled from September 24, 2018 and ends April 14, 2019. Practices will be held on Sundays, from 4:00-5:30pm at the Abbotsford Recreation Centre.
Cost is $400 for the season; however, if an athlete registers later in the season, the fee will be automatically prorated. If you are registering more than one athlete for Waterpolo, you can select + Add Another Registration (top right corner) once you get to the Checkout option for the first athlete.
You can select to pay using a Billing Schedule (automatic payment 1st day of each month of remaining $350 – October to April); however, a payment of $50 will be required at time of registration.
A processing fee of 4% is applied to all payments, regardless if you pay online using a credit card or offline with a cheque. Payment by cheque is only an option for those families who do not have a credit card; otherwise, please make your payment online during the registration process. Ensure you select “Store this card for future use” AND “Make this the primary payment method” if you are choosing automatic payment options. Electronic check payments are not an option with the Abbotsford Whalers so please do not select that option.
Fees, or a portion of the fee, will only be refunded if notice of withdrawal from the program is provided in writing 2 weeks prior to the first scheduled date of the season (for late registrations, notice must be given before the 1st day of the following month). Please send a request for withdrawal to email@example.com
