1) Swim team member monthly dues (***More information about dues can be found on the General Questions Page under the FAQ's tab.)
a) Midnight Sun Swim Team members will receive a billing statement monthly at the appropriate rate for the level, or group, the swimmer is currently enrolled in.
This rate is dependent on the assigned level and not on the number of days the swimmer is actually in the pool. Exceptions may be granted by the Midnight Sun Swim Team Board of Directors on a case by case basis.
b) Midnight Sun Swim Team members will receive a billing statement at the beginning of each swim month for that month’s dues. The payment for that month should be received by Midnight Sun Swim Team within fifteen days after receipt of the billing statement.
Any additional fees, such as swim meet entry fees, incurred during a swim month will be included on the next swim month’s billing statement.
c) Midnight Sun Swim Team members who have account balances delinquent by more than three months will not be allowed to continue swimming. The account must be brought current or arrangements made to bring the account current prior to the swimmer returning to the pool.
2) Swim team member rate levels and fees
a) Midnight Sun Swim Team is divided into six separate fee rate groups. These groups are based on skill level and assigned pool time allowance. These groups are:
1. Novice I (unavailable at this time)
2. Novice II
3. Novice III
4. Age Group / Junior
b) Midnight Sun Swim Team members may be billed at a reduced rate when on the swim team in a non-swimming status. This reduced rate must be requested and applied for in writing prior to the interval of inactivity.
May be utilized once per year with a maximum of three months duration. Extensions due to extenuating circumstances may be granted by the Midnight Sun Swim Team Board of Directors on a case by case basis.
2. Senior Maintenance
Utilized by swimmers who also swim on a school team.
Swimmers may swim Saturdays and/or mornings while on Senior Maintenance.
The Senior Maintenance incurred time is in addition to the three month limitation of the Maintenance rate.
c) When enrolled at a university and swimming on that university’s swim team, Midnight Sun Swim Team members may be billed at a reduced rate. The swimmer must be registered with Midnight Sun Swim Team and USA Swimming. The treasurer must be notified in writing when the swimmer is swimming for a university swim team for this reduced rate to be in effect.
d) In addition to the monthly dues, swim meet entry fees may be included on the Midnight Sun Swim Team member monthly billing statement. These fees are posted in the individual swim meet invites.
e) Midnight Sun Swim Team members who choose to depart the team shall provide written notice to the Treasurer thirty days prior to termination of membership. USA Swimming registration cannot be transferred to another team unless the account is in good standing.
f) Midnight Sun Swim Team members who choose to depart the team, whether by actively resigning or by non-payment of dues, may be charged a rejoining fee if they decide to return to the team at a later date. This fee is in addition to regular monthly team dues. Exceptions due to extenuating circumstances may be granted by the Midnight Sun Swim Team Board of Directors on a case by case basis.
