TRAINING LEVELS & FEES
SCAT is a USA Swimming year-round competition swim team. We also offer developmental programs for swimmers interested in competitive swimming. Requirements for each level have been carefully considered to best suit the needs of all swimmers. Coaches will have final say in Swim Level placement.
Our programs for younger and/or less experienced swimmers include our Seasonal sessions during the calendar school year and the recreation swim team in the summer. Those swimmers who continue in our program demonstrate a level of ability, commitment, and maturity that lead them toward success. Due to space and time constraints (we share a pool with the community and 5 high school teams), we carefully place our swimmers in appropriate training groups and have limited space within each group.
Kedron Aquatic Center, offers swim lessons for younger and/or less experienced swimmers. We encourage you to contact their Aquatics Office at 770-631-2525.
Our year round program is our USA Swimming competitive program. This is the next level after our Seasonal and Pirates Summer Recreation program. Our year round program runs from Aug 1 - July 31st.
SCAT year round dues are based on costs assuming your swimmer is participating for a 12 month period. Rather than paying all 12 months, we bill for only 10 months during the fiscal year. Invoices and payments are handled electronically through Team Unify. Training Fees are due on the first day of each month.
Monthly swim fees do not include swim meet fees & expenses.
National Development $298/month
15 DAYS NOTICE – Swimmers must email Denise Sturman ([email protected]) 15 Fifteen days prior to leaving the team so that all financial obligations can be completed. At this time all monthly and meet fees must be paid in full.
Prior to signing up for meets, please review the Meet Info document to find out the costs of meet. In addition to entry fees, there will be a minimum of $5 ADDITIONAL surcharge to all meets. These surcharges help cover coaches’ expenses (gas, food, motel, etc.) along with the cost of caps and other incentives used for meets. The surcharge amount is based on: length of meet, distance to meet, number of swimmers attending etc.There will be a minimum of $5 surcharge to all meets.
Meet fees must be paid regardless of attendance at the meet. NO EXCEPTIONS for any reason. Once a swimmer has signed up for a meet, SCAT has sent payment to the host team.
MISSED PRACTICES & HOLIDAYS
Swim fees will not be pro-rated for absences or vacations. No fees will be refunded for missing practices, unless due to injury, in which a physician’s note is to be provided.

Fees are paid monthly but are not reflective of that month’s practices.
Family Discounts will be applied for multiple swimmers within a family.
I HAVE READ AND AGREE TO THE ABOVE INFORMATION AND WOULD LIKE TO REGISTER MY ATHLETE.
Seasonal - Intro/Foundation to Swim Team
Offered during school year only
SEASONAL Pre Requisites:
Seasonal is a great option for those who want to continue the fun of summer league swimming during the school year, or build on skills learned in other swimming programs. Swimmers may use the Seasonal program as a stepping stone to Year Round SCAT. We accept swimmers ages 6 to 16. If your swimmer has never tried competitive swimming (like a summer league recreation team) we recommend an equivalent swim level as Level 5 at the Dive Center or Level 4 at Kedron Aquatic Center. These swimmers are able to swim 50 yards freestyle (front crawl) and 25 yards Backstroke, and have been introduced to Butterfly, and Breaststroke. Swimmers are also able to shallow angle dive into deep water. This is not a swim lesson, but rather a coached workout.
