(Our goal is that we shred your postdated cheques for Levy because you have completed your LEVY Hour Commitment).

Levy Cheques are Dated:

  • January 31st, 2019

Amount for Each Levy Cheque


+ Add

First Year Swimmer with EBSC

30 hours

$150 X 2


+15 hours

+ $75 x 2

Second Year + Swimmer with EBSC

50 hours

$250 x 2

+15 hours

+ $75 x 2

Example:        I have 2 swimmers.  Both 2nd + Year Swimmers. 

                        I write 2 Levy Cheques for $325 each

                        My Calculation

                        1st Swimmer 50 hours x $10 = $500 / 2 = $250

                        2nd Swimmer 15 hours x $10 = $150 / 2 = $75

Note:               A Maximum Number of 65 Levy Hours will be asked of any one family, regardless of the number of additional swimmers in that family                           

There are many ways to earn your participation levy hours, including helping with a fundraiser/ rebate project, volunteering at one of our Swim Meets, etc.  See the Participation Levy page on our Website for more detail.  All volunteer opportunities with the club will be posted/emailed and members may sign up jobs via the website.

Contact the LEVY Coordinator- Michelle Parent if you have any questions.


Swim Meet & Fees

Meet Fees and the cost of travel to and from swim meets (+ accommodation if necessary) is the sole responsibility of the swimmer’s family.  Please factor these expenses into your Swim Season Budget. 

  • Swim meets are scheduled throughout the season for Competitive swimmers. Meets are held locally (Kingston & Belleville), throughout Ontario and sometimes Quebec. Entry standards and entry fees vary between meets. 
  • Meet packages and Swim Meet details are posted to the website so that parents can commit to the meet. 
  • Coaches will propose events for new/ developing swimmers and discuss events with Senior & National Swimmers. 
  • Families may opt out of swim meets or decide how many days/ events they will commit to.
  • As per EBSC By-Law, “Competitive Swimmer” means a swimmer who actively competes in a minimum of four (4) swim meets per swim season, or as determined by the Board.
  • Coaches enter swimmers into events in advance of each Meet. The number of sessions and events may be different for each Meet.
  • Coaches send out event entries in advance of the meet and provide a deadline to inform the coach if you need to make any changes or scratch from the meet.

NOTE: Once the coach has submitted the final meet entries, families will receive a billing notice for payment with a due date attached. You are responsible for paying the committed fees on-time, even if your swimmer does not attend.
