4.         Monthly invoices: invoices are generated and posted to each account on the 21st day of each month and must be paid on the 1st of each month. Planet Swim will send an invoice to all families. Please take the time and review the details of all charges posted during the month and let Planet swim office staff know if there is any mistake with your charges. This is to allow sufficient amount of time for each family to go over all items posted, ask questions and make changes when necessary, before an automatic on-line payment is processed on the 1st day of the month. 

5.         Payment Policy:  You have an option to pay by credit/debit card or check but Planet Swim requires that every member add a credit card to our registration form, however if you choose to pay by check please select ‘pay by check’ in your registration. If payment by check has not reached Planet Swim by the 5th day of the month, the Credit card on file will be processed without any penalty. Your payment will be automatically processed on the 1st day of every month during the duration of the contract (9 months). Payment arrangements must be made prior to the 1st day the swimmer begins practicing.  If your account balance is 60 days past due this will result in suspension of your swimmer(s) until the account is settled. A $20.00 late fee will be assessed if payment is not received by the 5th of the month.  All accounts that are 90 days past due will be sent to collection agency. Should the collections actions on your account become necessary, you will be responsible for all costs associated with collections actions including but not limited to court costs and/or legal fees. All funds owed to Planet Swim from previous swim season must be paid in full before the swimmer is allowed to participate in the new swim season.

6.         Family discount plan: the swimmer in the highest-level program is charged the full fee. The second and each additional swimmer in the family are entitled to a 5% discount on their fees.

7.         Agreement/Early termination: Swimmers wishing to join the year-round swim team must commit to a seasonal membership plan. Membership calendar starts on September 1st ending on May 31st. Membership for the months of June, July and August will be optional and will not require any agreement, but will secure the swimmer’s spot for the following season. Membership agreement for swimmers joining the year-round swim team after September 1st will be pro-rated based on sign-up date and will expire on May 31st of the current season. If a swimmer decides to terminate their membership agreement prior to May 31st of the current season, the parent must notify our billing administrator by e-mail at or before the 1st day of the month to avoid upcoming monthly dues charge. There is an early termination fee of $125 for every swimmer who wishes to terminate their agreement prior to the expiration date. Additionally, there will be a $25 re-activation fee for members wishing to re-activate their account prior to the start of the new season.  More information regarding membership policies is available on our website at

8.         Financial abatements: Are granted by Planet Swim billing on a case-by-case basis. In general, financial abatements are granted only for injury or illness during a season. A physician’s statement may be required before and the billing staff will review the individual situation. Financial abatements will not be granted if pool is unavailable, short-term seasonal breaks, pool break-downs, weather, or other unforeseen circumstances.

9.         Parent ResponsibilitiesTo have a successful program there must be understanding, participation, involvement, and cooperation among parents, swimmers, and coaches. Planet Swim Aquatics is a parent-supported program, and we depend on your commitment to keep the program going.  Fundraisers and other team activities including swim meets, clinics and camps provide the team with additional resources that allow keeping membership dues down while providing high quality program for our children.  In order to save team costs, we rely on our website, e-mail, and online billing to conduct team business and keep you informed, so please familiarize yourself with these tools. Please have swimmers at practice on time and pick them up promptly after practice. Most importantly be supportive and encourage your swimmers. If you have any concerns, please contact the coach before or after practice. Our Planet Swim Aquatics Coaches are always available to answer your questions.
