2020 - 2021 Swim Season Registration, WAIVERS & COVID,-19, Practices & Tuition Fees

Registration Fee
A non-refundable registration fee of $200.00 will be charged at the time of registration for the short course. Additionally, there is an $80 fee for USAA Swimming membership for a total of $280.00. 

Your registration fee will be refunded only if the coach determines your child is not ready to participate on the team.

WAIVERS & COVID19--Boys & Girls Club Waiver & Code of Conduct
The CDC has stated “there is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools...”
 
Additionally, chlorine inactivates the SARS-CoV-2 virus in water. However, there are always risks and we still need to maintain social distancing. As such, until recommendations from the CDC change, we will only a max of 2-3 swimmers per lane at any time with each swimmer positioned either at oppostie ends or in the middle of the pool (experienced swimmers only).
 
Additionally, a separate waiver and code of conduct form needs to be signed in order to swim at the Boys & Girls Club of Watertown. Once you have registered, we will email these forms to you. They need to returned before attending your first practice. More details about checking in to club will be provided after registration.
 
Practices
Each week we will have at least 2 weekday practice sessions and 2 weekend practice sessions in the pool. Additionally we will have at least 1-2 virtual dryland/yoga practices. Schedule (see below) may vary due to pool availablity at the Boys & Girls Clubs.

Tuition Fees
A tuition fee of $300.00 will be charged by automatic payment monthly. This includes pool practices, virtual dryland practices, and virtual yoga. Costs for swim meets and other activites are charges separately. There is a 20% discount on additional memberships for siblings.

{For now: Bronze Development Groups will only be $250/mo.)

It was a difficult decision to change the tuition this year. However, given the increase in operating costs due to lane restrictions, staffing/coaching requirements, and other operating costs due to COVID-19, we had to make a change. This increase reflects the first tuition change in five years for BAT. We thank you for your continued support.
