REGISTRATION

Incomplete registrations (missing signatures, forms, releases, etc.) will not be processed. Registration must be done through the Blue Devil Swim Club using the online forms, not through the Park District registration process and/or forms.

PRACTICE

Please check the website for the schedule and times for each group. All deviations from this schedule can be found on the Blue Devil Swim Club website.

FUNDRAISING

In order to maintain affordable team fees, purchase equipment and supplies, and support ongoing programs, BDSC holds a variety of fundraising activities. Swimmers and their families are required to participate in these fundraising activities.

VOLUNTEERISM

BDSC is a parent-run organization and, in order to be a successful club, every family's assistance is required. Please read the Volunteer Commitment.

USA SWIMMING REGISTRATION FEE

All swimmers must register as USA Swimming Athletes during the online registration process. This must be renewed annually during fall/winter registration. This fee of $81 is due at registration. See fee chart.

MEET FEES (Approximate fees)

Dual/tri/conference meets are included in the registration Fees. Invitational meet fees are based on charges from the host team. Generally, they are $3-$5 per event, plus a $2-$3 LSC fee. Sometimes, there is an additional facility charge. BDSC also assesses a $8 per swimmer per day coaching fee. Total costs can run from $15-$30 per day, depending on per event charges. In addition to the daily meet fees, BDSC charges a $30 flat fee for out-of-town team travel meets to cover coaches travel expenses. Time trials and championships fees are based on the meet packets, plus a $8 per day coaching fee.

If your swimmer is entered to swim at a meet, fees will be charged and payment will be expected unless you communicate with the coaches and your swimmer is removed from the meet before the entry deadline.

Meet fees can be paid via check, cash, ACH transactions, and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard and Discover) through Team Unify on our website.

If you choose to pay with a credit card or an ACH transaction, there will be a $5.00 fee assessed per transaction which will take place monthly. Payments are processed on the 1st of every month.

MEET FEE POLICY:

If your meet fees are not paid after 30 days from receipt of invoice, your swimmer will not be able to practice until all fees are paid. The fees that you are invoiced at the beginning of each month are fees accrued from the previous month. Therefore, those fees have already been paid by BDSC to the host club. In order to ensure that BDSC fulfills its operational expenses, we must collect payments in a timely manner.

FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE

BDSC and USA swim fees are nonrefundable, will not be pro-rated for partial seasons and must be paid in full at registration or according to the payment schedule.

REGISTRATION PAYMENTS

You may choose to pay by credit card during the online registration process or by check. If you plan to pay by credit card, please ensure your payment setup information is up to date in the Payment Setup section under My Account. If you pay by check, your cancelled check is your receipt. BDSC is not responsible for other cash payments unless they are prearranged with the club treasurer so that a receipt can be given.

Registration is not open. Please come back later.
