Swim Fees


FEES 2019-2020

Click the below link for detail of our preseason payment plan options: 



The annual registration fee includes the USA Swimming Fee & Team T-Shirt and covers many team expenses with the biggest one being the rental of lane space.

There is no charge for August practices.

Two payment options are available for each swim group:  

MONTHLY:  Registration Fee is due at time of registration and monthly fees are charged from September - April.  Our season runs through most of May but there is no fee charged for May.  

PIF (Pay in Full):  The entire season is paid before the first practice with an approximate 10% discount off monthly fees (there is no discount off the registration fee since the majority of that fee goes to the county for payment of lane space).    

Online payment is preferred.  Payment with a check or money order will be accepted on an as needed basis.

Refund Policy:  There will be no refunds on Registration Fee and Monthly Fees already paid. 

Late Fees:  There will be a $25 late fee charged on the 5th of each month to all accounts with a balance due.

Swimmers will not be allowed to participate if their financial obligations are more than 30-days delinquent, unless alternative arrangements have been made.
