This group meets four times a week for 90 minutes per session. Swimmers typically advance to Senior based on coach's referral.   

Senior Prep: Swimmers legal in all 4 strokes and meet the coach’s swimming requirements. Strokes will be monitored and aerobic capacity and endurance will be developed, with pacing for races, and tactics for racing being introduced. This group practice 4 times a week for 90 minutes .

 USA Swimming Membership:

 

All swimmers must be members of USA Swimming. USA Swimming is the governing body of swimming. Membership provides insurance for swimmers while at practice. The fee for 2022 is $72.

HEAT Family Registration Fee

 

The HEAT registration fee is a yearly charge paid by all swimmers who wish to participate on the team.  Currently this fee is $75 per family and is payable at the time of registration.  This fee is for administrative/office costs such as postage, paper, copier toner, printer cartridges, envelopes, telephone service, etc.

 Swim Meet Entries

Almost every meet that we enter as a team will have entry fees charged.  Typically, a surcharge of from $4 to $12 is assessed by the host team, and $3.50 to $5.00 per event entered.  Swimmers attending a full weekend meet will often have $25 to $35 in entry fees for the meet.  Families may opt to pay when entering each meet, but are encouraged to maintain an escrow account for meet entries so that they will never miss an entry deadline due to lack of available funds.

Booster Fundraising Commitment

THIS VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT IS REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOUR SWIMMMER ATTENDS SWIM MEETS

Each family is expected to aid the Boosters by raising at least as much money as listed below.  Several options are available for meeting this commitment.  Families may choose any combination of possibilities listed below, but do not need to participate in every fundraiser.  

1 swimmer                              $150

                                                2 swimmers                             $200

3 swimmers (or more)            $250

 

Fundraising is due November 30th.  Those families who join after this date will have their fundraising obligation due in February.  The amount will be prorated according to when you join the team.  If you choose not to fundraise, you may “buyout” by writing a check for the amount you owe. 

Volunteer Assessment Fee

  All parents are required to help support the team by working at the three meets we co-host or host each year. We require three separate UNDATED $125 checks payable to HEAT Booster’s at registration, which will be held by the Treasure. Families are expected to work at each of the three meets. The number of sessions required to work will be determined on a meet-by-meet basis, depending on the need for that particular meet. Failing to fulfill the work requirement for each meet will result in a $125 fine. You will be given a seven day advance notice should that occur that one of your $75 checks will be cashed. This process will be the same for each meet.  

THIS VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENT IS REGARDLESS OF WHETHER YOUR SWIMMER IS ENTERED IN THE MEET(S) OR NOT!!
