Waiting List

It is possible to sign up for a waiting list for one or more specific classes when the class is full. A place on the waiting list is only valid in the current season.

The waiting list in the membership system is fully automated. This means that if a vacancy arises in a class with a waiting list, the place is offered via email to no. 1 on the waiting list. After that, you have 48 hours to accept offers of space. If no. 1 on the waiting list does not accept the place within 48 hours, no. 2 on the waiting list is offered the place for 48 hours, etc. When a waiting list for a specific team has been run through once without a member having purchased the place, the team's waiting list is deleted, and vacant places are given free.

Registration after the start of the season

It is possible to register for teams throughout the season if there are vacant places. Specific conditions may apply to activities with fixed curriculums or specific safety demands. For teams that train for the entire period from September to April, the team membership fee is reduced by 50% from January.
