September 2, 2018: 2018-19 Registration Update

Hey Cruisers,

As you know, we are launching a brand new registration process this year.

https://cruiserssports.wildapricot.org/
(you can also access via the "Register" link on our webpage)


WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO REGISTER PRIOR TO SHOWING UP ON YOUR FIRST DAY.

There is an option to pay online as well.
If you are unsure, or have questions, please email Jenn or myself.

To help ensure accuracy of, and up-to-date information, as well as streamline the process of communicating with you, we will be launching our registration portal, powered by Wild Apricot.

The form only takes about 5 minutes to fill out, and includes medical information. The first year, everyone will have to take the time to fill out the form, but next year, and moving forward, the renewal process will be a simple review of information, and renew!

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
It means that we WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT PAPER registration packages. EVERY Cruisers member & coach will sign up online, PRIOR TO the start of the season. There is an option to pay online, but don't worry, we still take cash and cheques if you prefer. We will be at the first registration days with iPads to help sign you up, HOWEVER the process will go quicker if you sign up BEFOREHAND.


I HAVE TROUBLE WITH ONLINE FORMS!!
Don't worry; we'll be at each of the first registration days to help you through the process. WE DO however, recommend that you try to register before showing up, as this makes the process easy as pie!


EVERY MEMBER WILL NEED A UNIQUE EMAIL ADDRESS.
This is a limitation of Wild Apricot and there is nothing we can do. We have figured out some workarounds to help you out though: https://cruiserssports.wildapricot.org/emails


First-week Registration dates:

  • Sunday, Sept 16th - Mississauga Multisports
  • Monday, Sept 17th - Houseleague Basketball
  • Tuesday, Sept 18th - Brampton Multisports
  • Wednesday, Sept 19th - Para Ice Hockey at Earnscliffe
  • Friday, Sept 21st - Competitive basketball
  • Saturday, Sept 22nd - Para Ice Hockey at Iceland
  • Sunday, Sept 23rd - Para Ice Hockey at Sixteen Mile


FEES:
The fees have stayed the same for Members as last year.
Our siblings/non-members are now called "Associate Members", and are equal in cost to what a Cruisers Member pays.


We are here to help if you have any questions.
Please email Jenn Simpson - registration@cruisers-sports.com, or reply to this email, and we will be happy to help.
