AFP-Manna Updates

Each family (with exception of High School, JumpStart, and Collegiate swimmers) is responsible for an additional payment to the RAYS. The AFP must be earned or paid by April 30 of each swim season. A “returning” family has an AFP Obligation of $225. A “first year” family has an AFP Obligation of $125. This reduced AFP allows “first year” family to get familiar with the AFP/Scrip Program. Families that have had swimmers on the team previously are not considered “first year".

AFP may be made by direct payment or by credit by one of many available options described below:

Do I have to participate:  Families can “opt-out” of the AFP plan by paying the total obligation upfront at time of registration.

When will I be invoiced if I don't meet our family obligation?  Any AFP amount not meet by April 30th will be on your May Invoice and be due June 1st.

What if I earn more than my obligation?  Credit in excess of the required AFP is added to the family’s account, up to $1000 credit/rebate. Excess credit/rebate over $1000 reverts to the RAYS, as a donation to the RAYS scholarship fund. Excess credit to a family’s team account may not result in a refund of monies previously paid and a family may not delay a payment in anticipation of future AFP credit.

What if I leave the RAYS?  When a family leaves the team, excess funds in the family’s team account, gained via AFP, reverts to the RAYS.
