Fees & Payments


**Please note that if your account has a balance from last season, it must be paid before registering for the next season.  Injury, illness or changing your mind does not mitigate your obligation to pay ALL fees.  Our experience is that most families complete all their work session requirements.  We will work with you to help you to find ways to meet your commitments.  Please communicate with a board member or board treasurer if you need assistance.


You will be billed for 5 categories of fees throughout the year:


1. Season membership fees: The membership fees are listed below. New swimmer fees apply only to those who have never been a DASH member. Season fees are not refundable, except in cases of debilitating injury or illness only. The DASH board of directors will address any issues surrounding refunds. To have your case addressed please contact a DASH board member.


2. USA swimming fees: EVERY swimmer must be USA Swimming registered. USA Swimming provides insurance for us and you. USA Swimming registration fees will be charged during the fall season. If you are new or did not swim this fall, a prorated fee will be added to your summer registration. If your swimmer qualifies beyond a state level meet (Zones, Juniors, Sectional) you must pay the full annual membership.  Refer to USA Swimming's Outreach program for finacial assistance (section III of the link below):


3. Registration fee: A registration fee will be applied to swimmers who did not swim on the DASH team the season prior but have been a DASH member in the past. Registration fee is charged per swimmer. Does not apply to new DASH swimmers or college students.


4. Meet fees: Each swimmer is charged for the meet and events in which he/she participates along with facilities fees associated with the meet.  Meet fees are not refundable due to illness or injury. If you need to change your commitment for the meet after the Team Unify sign up is closed, you must email the coach AND receive an affirmation response. If the entries have already been submitted to the meet, a $10 cancelation fee will be charged and meet fees will not be refunded. Meet fees will be invoiced to your account once sign up is closed. Note: meet fees are set by the host team and may include a “facility” or “spectator” fee. Those swimmer who qualify for USA swimming Outreach program are eligible for reduced meet fees.


5. Work Session requirements: You will be billed $50 per work session that you have NOT worked. Further work session information can be found under the "Parents" tab or click here.


6.  Facility Enhancement: As we look to the future of DASH and being able to provide all our swimmers with access to the highest-quality facilities, a facility enhancement fee has been add this year.  The additional fee will be placed in reserve to support our work in upcoming years to plan future facility enhancements and we will keep you informed as that work progresses.


Scholarship Program:

Dubuque Area Swimmin’ Hurricanes would like to provide an opportunity to all eligible community members that would like to participate in a competitive swim team regardless of financial status. A scholarship program has been developed to grant financial assistance in the form of free or reduced fees for individuals and families financially unable to pay the established program fees.  Scholarship Program
