Swim Meets

Swim meet entry fees are between $15-20 per day, depending on the number of events entered. Details of each swim meet and its meet entry fees can be found on the Meets/Events page on ultswimming.org. Meet entry fees are paid by Ultimate Swimming when entries are submitted to the host team, usually 6 weeks before the meet; once submitted, all meet entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE and are invoiced to your team account and will be included in the amount due each month.

Swimmers are not to register for swim meets until told by the coaching staff. Events will be chosen by the coaching staff, not the parents or swimmer. Parents are to register swimmers for meet and which days they are to swim. The coaching staff will make the final decision as to which events the swimmer will compete in regardless of the parents wishes.  

Hosted Swim Meets

FMC Aquatic will be hosting the Athletico Splash and Dash on January 4-5. The requirements have not changed, they are detailed below:

All swimmers will be entered and billed entry fees in all of our hosted meets.  Each family is required to work at least 2 sessions of the meet, regardless of the number of sessions your child swims; even if your child will not be swimming in the meet (IHSA swimmers) you are still required to volunteer and work at the meet. If the volunteer obligation is not met, Ultimate Swimming will bill a $200 penalty, per session, for each session of work missed.

Every season there are families that wait until after the hosted meet to ask questions about the volunteer requirements. There are no exceptions to the requirements. Having the support of each family is crucial to the long term success of our team! We appreciate all of the time volunteered, thank you for all of your help.

 


We look forward to having you join FMC Aquatic, and are excited for another great season!
