Summer Session Registration

Hello Mercury Families, 

It is time to register for the summer session which runs from May 1st-August 31st.
I have attached the current Mercury registration form which needs to be filled out and returned, with payment, for all returning and new swimmers. We must have an updated form for each session.
I am also attaching a copy of the USA Swimming registration form. If you have already filled out this form and paid the $69 for 2018 (which most families did for the fall session) you do not need to fill this out again.  If your swimmer is new to Mercury, or you did not already fill this form out and send the $69 fee, you need to do this IMMEDIATELY! This is mandatory for all swimmers, as it covers their insurance. Your swimmer will not be able to compete in meets until their application has been processed by USA Swimming.  
Finally, the board has made some small changes to our fee structure in the fall. We have updated our collegiate team information and added a partial session participation option. You can see all of the information in the attached document (Mercury levels and rates), but here are the major changes...

***Partial Session Participation

If a previous Full Time or Part Time Competitive swimmer wishes to start a future session early, they may begin midsession (Nov 1Mar 1 or July 1) for a reduced  fee ($180 for Part-time and $220 for Full-time). The entire next session fee and reduced session fee must be paid in full for the swimmer to begin practices. If the swimmer is using the payment schedule  option, 50% of the session fee and the entire reduced fee is due before they can begin practice. This discount can be used once per calendar year.

***Collegiate Team        $125 per academic year (Sept-April)


·             Any collegiate athlete currently on the swim team roster at an accredited college or university may train with Mercury Swimming during the college break and Saturday practices with the following stipulations:

o       They must be registered with USA Swimming with Mercury Swimming.

o       They may compete with Mercury Swimming either as a Mercury Swimming Club member outside their collegiate season or unattached during their NCAA Season.

·               Collegiate athletes who wish to swim from May-August pay either the part-time or full-time competitive fee based on their level of participation.


We have made these changes to try to accommodate our swim families, as well as maintain the financial viability of the club. Please note that there are very specific criteria that need to be met for the partial session participation option. If your swimmer does not meet these, this option is not available to them. 


Full session payment is due now, or you may utilize the following payment plan...
 **50% of session fee due at start of session / registration (September 1stJanuary 1st & May 1st)
   **25% of session fee due by 10th of October, February & June
   **25% balance due by 10th of November, March & July 
   **REMEMBER to include the $69 USA Swimming registration fee with your payment if you have not already paid for 2018!!
Please mail in all forms and payments to Mercury Swimming, PO Box 114, Livonia, NY 14487, as soon as possible. Please do not give them to Coach Chris!!
I realize this is a lot of information. Please contact me with any questions. Also, please forward this to any families you know that may be interested in joining Mercury Swimming. Be sure to let them know that we need their swimmer's USA Swimming registration filled out immediately, even if they do not plan on starting practices right away!
