Are there additional costs beyond the registration deposit and training fees?
USA Swimming Athlete Registration: All swimmers must have an active 2018 USA Swimming Athlete Registration. The cost of the registration is $70 and will be included in your September 1 invoice. Swimmers coming to LAC from another USA Swimming club are responsible for transferring their registration to LAC (club code: MA-LAC) which may incur an additional cost.
Meet Entry Fees: Meet entry fees are set by the meet host and are billed back to the individual swimmer. Most meets change a per event entry fee and you pay a small fee for each event you're entered in (1/4 of the event fee if the event is a relay). Some meet hosts may add a small surcharge on top of the event entry fee. We occasionally attend a meet that charges each team a flat entry fee; the entry fees for those meets will be divided evenly amongst every LAC swimmer participating in the meet, regardless of how many events that swimmer swims. Meet entry fees will always be spelled out in advance in the meet packet and on that's meet's event registration page. Participation in meets is not required, but is encouraged.
Will LAC do any fundraising this season?
Our fundraising program is important for LAC. We fundraise for various reasons, but mostly to keep costs down for families while continuing to provide our swimmers with the best training possible. Each year, we participate in the USA Swimming Foundation's Swim-A-Thon. This year's Swim-A-Thon will be on Saturday, September 23 at F&M and we encourage each family to raise $200 towards this initiative. Additional details will be provided shortly after registration.
