Swimmers choosing to participate in swim meets are responsible for paying entry fees for those events. Entry fees include a meet surcharge from Arizona Swimming, a $7 surcharge from MAC and a fee for each individual event a swimmer races (MAC pays for relays). For travel meets, families are responsible for costs such as transportation, hotels and meals.
