Event Details

Plunge Times

When you check-in for the Polar Plunge, you will choose from available Plunge times for your team. If you would like an early Plunge time it is recommended that you attend an Early Check-In event.


  • We are strongly encouraging that all donations are made online in an effort to reduce cash handling at check-in
  • These improved efficiencies at check-in will mean reduced wait times and limit exposure to other participants and volunteers creating a COVID-friendly environment for all!

Early Check-In Events

Friday, March 17, 2023; 2:00-4:00PM
City Hall, West Whitewater Street

Only one team member needs to attend Early Check-In, but they must bring all of the items listed above for each team member. Attending an early check-in helps you avoid lines on the day of the event. You may turn in all pledges, receive incentives and select your Plunge time.

Day of Event Check-In

If you did not attend the Early Check-in event, you must check-in across the street from the Polar Plunge at City Hall on the day of the event. You will need to bring all of items listed above.


Volunteer at the Polar Plunge! A variety of volunteer opportunities available. Register here.
