LASC no longer participates in Bingo for fundraising. The increased focus on Swim-a-thon is in place to offset some of the revenue lost from Bingo.  The Swim-a-thon commitment is per family and is based on the highest level swimmer registered in a family.

Membership fees cover most of the operations of the club.  Additional fundraising revenue from Casino, Swim Meets, Swim-a-thon or other events go towards the balance of LASC operating expenses.

Members may be asked to participate in other team fundraising events for specific items such as travel to competitions or equipment purchases.

 

Discounts/Savings 

  • Jr. Pronghorn Membership fees are reduced by $25 per session for each child after the first.
  • For families with two or more competitive swimmers.  The highest level competitive swimmer pays full fees, all other competitive swimmers in the family receive a 25% reduction in annual fees.

Unpaid Accounts

  • Families with outstanding account balances will be required to pay in full at the time of registration.
