New for 2021-22, all prospective sailors need to register with New Trier Sailing and with CYC, and pay all dues to NTS and fees to CYC, before tryouts. CYC advises that all who try out will be offered a place on either the Varsity, Junior Varsity or Sonar Series team. NTS will refund all dues, and CYC will refund all registration fees less an approximately $100 service fee (to cover the expense of holding tryouts), if a sailor elects not to participate after learning their placement on the roster. Rosters should be announced on or before September 3.
This year’s NTS fall dues will be $495. As always, nearly all of those funds go to paying for the buses that will take sailors to and from practice each weekday. For those new to the program, these are in addition to fees charged by CYC.
Sailors registering for the tryouts (and their parents) must take these five steps to complete their registration on or before August 30, 2021:
- Fill out the information form below, including medical and uploaded insurance information.
- Print, sign and submit the NTS Code of Conduct.
- Print, sign and submit the NTS liability waiver.
- Pay New Trier Sailing dues of $495 (instructions below).
- Complete separate Chicago Yacht Club registration and pay CYC fees.
All printed and signed documents (Code of Conduct, Liability Waiver) should be scanned and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use “Registration” and the name of your sailor in the title of the e-mail.
For payment of NTS dues, the strong preference is for using Chase QuickPay/Zelle using the email@example.com address. (Note, if your bank is BMO/Harris, they will not process payments through Zelle.) In the alternative, dues can be paid by direct deposit or ACH/account transfer to the NTS Chase Bank account: routing number 071000013, account number 930621763. Or wire transfer may be used: routing number 021000021, account number 930621763. If payment by check is necessary, please e-mail for instructions.
