Parents, here are the steps you need to complete in order to have your NEW or RETURNING swimmer on the team this fall:

* Complete a paper USA Swimming Athlete Registration (download & print).

* Submit the USA form, along with checks for ASA monthly dues and the yearly USA fee ($55) to the ASA Treasurer.  All materials are due by Saturday, September 14th.

* Sign up for the City of Kirksville’s Textcaster service. (We utilize this service to send out team messages, such as when practices are canceled. You can have the messages sent to your phone, email, or both.  We suggest signing up for messages from both the Aquadogs and the Aquatic Center.)

* If you are interested in carpooling to practices, post a note on the ASA Aquadogs Facebook Page. Parents can then private message each other based on similar interests.  (And don't forget to "like" the Aquadog page while you're there!)

* Check the Aquadogs Calendar and make note of team practices, no-practice dates, swim meets, breaks & holidays, and other special events during 2013-2014.

* Enroll your swimmer in USA Swimming's Deck Pass program.  (This step is optional, as it will be the first year the Aquadogs are trying the Deck Pass system, but we think it will be fun!)

* Also an optional step but very helpful to our team planning, please fill out the very short Aquadogs Survey on practice times and team communication.

*Email if you have any questions or need help getting started!
