Return member registration is now available through your portal. Your portal can be accessed via your team website. The portal may also be accessed on the CBSD website by going to www.cbsd.org, click on the following: Community School, Aquatic Programs, Swim Teams, the link for your team, the link for return member registration.
The registration deadline is August 15th. By that date you must be registered online through your portal and have your physical and payment at the Community School Office. NOTE: New this year – if you prefer, you may scan and email your physical. Physical must be saved as a PDF file, completely readable, and received by August 15th. Payments must still be received in the Community School office by August 15th. Late fees will apply for all registrations after August 15th (if they can be accepted).
Online registration will be inclusive of ALL forms EXCEPT for your child’s physical and payments. Everyone will need to send in (or scan and email per above) a copy of their child’s physical, dated 10/01/14 or after… we DO NOT have copies from last year or this spring or summer. You will also need to send in one check made payable to The Central Bucks Community School for swim fees and one check made payable to the appropriate Parent’s Association (if applicable). Physical and payment need to be at 16 Welden Drive, Doylestown in the Community School office by the 8/15/2015 deadline.
Some information about the registration process:
CBST swimmers - this is the time of year that you need to register even if you are a year-round swimmer. Anyone swimming short course (whether it's short course only or a year-round option) needs to register now by the deadline stated above. If you also swim for SWAC or CBAC, be sure to register for that team at the same time as registering for CBST.
If you are a 9th grade or above Central Bucks high school swimmer who plans on swimming meets for CBAC or SWAC, you need to complete the information in the online registration process. There will be no fee due (unless you are also a CBST swimmer) and you do not need to deliver a physical (or anything) to the community school (again, unless you are also a CBST swimmer in which case you need to deliver payment to the Community School by the deadline) - once you complete the online process you are all set. Please remember that you will not be practicing with the CBAC/SWAC teams, only participating in meets. High school pre-season practice information will be available through your high school. If you are in 9th grade or above and do not swim for a Central Bucks high school team we will need a copy of your current physical for you to participate with any of our teams.
If you swam for CBAC or SWAC last year and want to join CBST this year, too, you need to first schedule an evaluation. Evaluations are currently being held by appointment and must be completed prior to registering through your portal. You must contact Jen Steinberg at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than July 8th to make arrangements for an evaluation. Note that swimmers younger than 9 years of age will generally not be evaluated for CBST. (If your eight year-old swimmer would like to practice with CBST – no meets available – email Jen Steinberg to explore the possibility of an evaluation.) Once your evaluation is completed you will be able to register through your portal for both CBST and your club team (CBAC or SWAC). Please do NOT register through the portal for any team prior to your evaluation.
If you swam for CBST only last year and want to also join SWAC or CBAC this year you must contact Jennifer Steinberg, email@example.com, for instructions on how to join those teams. Please contact Jen prior to registering online for CBST.
Regardless of the option you are choosing you will get an invoice at the end of the process with fees due ($0 for high-school club only swimmers as mentioned above). The invoice will specifically show all fees due and how they should be paid. These instructions must be followed precisely for your payment to be applied correctly. If you feel your invoice reflects the wrong amount or shows no payment due when it should have payment due and you are unsure of the amount due, email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Also, if you normally pay an Out of District fee for CBST, CBAC or SWAC you may include that fee with your registration payment or you will be billed after registration via email. The same will be true for escrow and the 2017 USA Swim fees for CBST.
If the process is not working correctly for you, please email Jeff Fox at mailto:email@example.com for assistance.
Instructions to register:
Follow the link to the portal per above. Please note that much information is provided on the CBSD website. Please take the time to read through this information before contacting us with questions as it will likely provide most answers.
Recall that your ID is your email address.
Your password is swimteam unless you've changed it.
If you want to make changes prior to getting to the invoice screen, cancel the registration and begin the process again. If you need to stop during the process (prior to reaching the invoice screen) you will be able to resume the registration when you return or start over.
Do not use the back key - this will cause problems with your registration.
Print your invoice screen for your records so you know that you've registered and the options you've chosen.
If you need to make a change once you've reached the invoice screen email me for assistance.
If you believe the payment indicated on your invoice is incorrect please email me.
If you need to drop off your physical and/or payment at 16 Welden Drive when the office is not open, please use one of the drop boxes attached to the building. Clearly label the outside of your envelope "CB Aquatics" and place your items in a tightly sealed plastic bag so they will not be damaged in case of rain.
If you have questions please ask them now rather than waiting until the last minute when response time will be longer.
Many thanks for your assistance in getting this process completed by the deadline.
