Information follows regarding the Winter 2014 swim season fees:

A multi-swimmer discount per family applies to all annual/full season groups, Novice through Senior (excludes Senior Short Course Only, Senior Long Course Only, High School Only, and Alumni). Dues can be paid by credit or debit card and can be 1) paid in full at the time of registration or 2) 50% paid at registration, followed by two scheduled monthly installments of 25% and 25%, respectively, using the Deferred Payment Plan. The Deferred Payment Plan option carries a surcharge of $15 per swimmer, which has been added to the respective Dues schedules. Dues are non-refundable after a two-week new swimmer trial period. Athlete dues include participation in all practices and dryland/strength training sessions, as applicable. As the season progresses, the Upper St. Clair Swim Club Board possesses the right to reduce Dues on a pro-rata basis. The Winter 2014 dues schedule is the first pro-rata reduction of the 2013-2014 season.
2) AMS/USA Athlete Fee - The required AMS/USA Swimming Athlete registration fee of $67 per swimmer provides many benefits and swimming-related portals, as well as excess accident and liability coverage immediately upon registration and through December 31, 2014.
