PAYMENT  POLICY

Pay dues online only!!

It places an extra burden on the other families if your payments are not kept current -- this includes both monthly dues and the annual Sponsorship Drive (fundraiser) fees.  Our current payment policy is the following:

Invoices are processed no later than the 1st of the month and payments are due by the 10th of the month.  If payment in full is not received by the 10th of the month, a $10 late fee will be assessed and added to the family's account on the 11th.

If payment of any outstanding account balance is not received by ERW by the end of the month:

  1. Swimming privileges will be revoked immediately and the swimmer(s) will not be allowed in the water for practice and/or meets until the account is paid in full.  At that time, the coaches will be notified of the overdue account.
  2. A $10 processing fee will be assessed to the account if the Treasurer must process the overdue payment.

It is the family's responsibility to keep their E-Check or credit/debit card numbers in the billing system in date and current because failed transactions are very time consuming for the Membership Coordinator.  If the family does not update their information on a timely basis, the swimmer(s) will not be allowed in the water for practice and/or meets until the Treasurer has verified their number is current in the billing system.

If a payment for meet registration fees is declined, the family will be given 5 days to fix the problem and make the payment online or the swimmer(s) will not be allowed to participate in the meet.

When the family's account is paid in full, the family must notify the Membership Coordinator and President by e-mail and the swimmer(s) may not enter the water until coaches are informed of the payment by the Treasurer.  Verification that the overdue payment has been received by the Treasurer may take up to 3 business days; therefore, the swimmer(s) may not enter the water until the Treasurer notifies the coaches on deck.
