Becoming a member of the Warner Robins Aquanaut Swim Team means fun, fitness, and teamwork. It also means a financial obligation to pay your monthly dues and other charges in a timely manner. The following outlines what you can expect to pay as a member of the team.
USA SWIMMING: As WRA is a member of USA Swimming, members are required to pay a yearly USA Swimming membership fee, excluding Blue 1 & 2. This annual fee for 2018 is $76. The USA Swimming membership provides secondary health and accident insurance in case of injury during swim team practice/meets at our pool or at other pools/meets associated with USA Swimming.
FAMILY FEE: Each family will be charged $50 to cover team costs. The $50 fee is posted to accounts annually through the family's membership.
MONTHLY DUES: Monthly dues are dependent upon the group which your swimmer is placed in and will change as your swimmer moves from group to group. Monthly dues as of September 1, 2012 are as follows: Blue 1 & Blue 2 - $55; Bronze - $60; Silver - $65; Gold - $75; Platinum - $85. Dues are invoiced on the 1st of each month and are paid by electronic check, debt card or credit card.
- A discount will be given in the amount of $10 off for a second swimmer, $20 off for a third swimmer,
and $30 off for additional swimmers after three. The discount applies to dues only.
FUNDRAISING: Our fundraising campaign requires each family to generate $150.00 minimum per family each year; October 1st – September 30th. Member families have the opportunity to choose the annual Partnership Campaign and/or the Annual Swim-A-Thon to meet the fundraiser contribution requirements. Both options are designed to provide swim families the opportunity to acquire monies from outside their personal household budget. On October 1st, those families that have not met the $150.00 minimum will be charged accordingly, through our TeamUnify accounting software. Detailed information on fundraising events is communicated throughout the year. This $150 minimum per family is key to assisting WRA in meeting operational expenses and prepare for unexpected shortfalls without raising monthly swim activity fees on an individual swimmer basis.
