New GST Dues and Payment Structure (GAC)

 

New Due’s and Payment Structure Effective 9/1/2018

Good afternoon Parents,

 I hope everyone is enjoying the Summer.  We are approaching our 1st six months of being a parent-owned swim team, as opposed to being owned by the Germantown Athletic Club.  For the most part, everything appears to be going rather smoothly.  Some of our new kids have posted some very fast times and have qualified for LCM Southeastern’s.  Others have dropped significant times and others have done a very good job of maintaining. 

Because our team is now responsible for all of the expenses with this type structure, we anticipated in March that we would have a need to raise our dues.  Starting in September our dues are going to increase $5 a month / $15 a payment period.  Germantown Swim Team has traditionally been the lowest cost team in the area.  With the pay increase we will now be about even with Bartlett as two of the lowest cost team in the area.  We feel this is a very modest raise in dues that will go a long way in benefitting our kids. 

With that being said, the board has also discussed some issues that have been troubling us.  There has always been some confusion on dues and the structure, with some people taking off the summer long course season, so forth and so on.  The payment structure will now line up with the swimming seasons better.  The pay structure will now be Sept-Dec (Fall), Jan-April (Winter), and May-Aug (Summer).  We feel this will remove SOME of the confusion.  This will also leave a perfect break for those wishing not to swim long course.

Lastly, we will now be issuing intent forms the month prior to the next pay cycle.  This will help us to not only give you a reminder of the upcoming pay cycle, but also give us an idea of who will not be swimming or returning, especially for the long course summer season.  This will go a long way in helping us schedule things as well as keeping the coaches updated.

Below is the new Dues and Payment Schedule.
