  • TEAM UNIFY AS OUR ONLINE BILLING SYSTEM

BCS uses Team Unify as our online billing system that enables members to have their checking account automatically deducted through ACH (Automatic Clearing House).  It is the expectation that all members will pay their dues and all other expenses incurred with ACH payment.   We do however accommodate alternative methods of payment to our members as a matter of convenience and allow payment by credit or debit card (Visa/MC).  A convenience fee of 2.95% will automatically be charged for use of credit and debit card effective 8/31/18.   Any member can change their preferred method of payment by signing into your account and clicking on the tab to the left, "Setup Autopay." 


  • USA SWIMMING REGISTRATION FEE

Each swimmer is required to be registered with USA Swimming.  The annual fee is $68.00 and is on a calendar year basis.  BCS will renew and bill all attached swimmers every October.

  • MEET ENTRY FEES

Costs for swim meets are in addition to other fees.  Each swimmer pays a meet entry fee and a per event fee to enter the meet. These fees are outlined on the meet entry form and go to the meet host team and Southern California Swimming. 

In addition to the "host" meet entry fees, BCS will add the following meet surcharge for each meet entry:

*For Pacific Committee and Local Meets: $10.00 BCS meet surcharge per swimmer and $1.00 BCS surcharge per event.

*For Championship and Travel Meets: $20.00 BCS meet surcharge per swimmer and $2.00 BCS surcharge per event.

  • RELAY FEES AT CHAMPIONSHIP MEETS

At Championship Meets, swimmers are expected to participate in relays if committed to participate in the meet. Each swimmer selected (coaches discretion) to swim in a relay will be charged $5.00 (or 1/4 of the cost of the relay). Should a swimmer leave a championship meet and fail to check in with a COACH to verify relay sheet, thus causing a relay to be disqualified, the entire relay fee of $20.00 (or cost of the relay) will be charged to that swimmer. 

Please refer to the Parent Handbook for Payment Policies and Late Fees. 

Fees are subject to change at any time.
