Training Fees & Refunds

Group Fees above include training fees only. For new swimmers, within the first two weeks of practice your team fees will be returned to you if you drop out, but your ISI/USA registration will not.  After that time, no team fees will be refunded. For returning members, you can get a team credit.  No refunds beyond these stipulations.

ISI Fees

Wheaton Swim Club must register all athletes (except Orange) with ISI (Illinois Swimming, Inc) and USA Swimming. This $75 fee is passed directly on to Illinois Swimming and covers your insurance. Your ISI fee is good from Sept 1 through Aug 31 each year. Orange group swimmers do not need ISI Insurance.


All families are asked to pay a fundraising fee to help keep fees down for everyone. This fee is per family and if you have children in multiple groups your family will pay the higher of the rates.  For summer session all members have rate of $50.  For fall/winter session members of National, Jr. National and Gold pay a  rate of $190, High School National, Silver and Bronze pay a rate of $130 and Senior, Bronze and Blue pay rate of $80.  We do offer a Swim-a-thon and Script gift card sales and any monies made can be applied towards your fundraising bill.

Hosted Meets Policy

Wheaton Swim Club hosts a few meets per season. For all hosted meets families will be responsible for paying for swimmers events even if they choose not to participate/swim in the meet. 

Hidden Costs, Incentives, and Scholarships

There are no mandatory costs involved in our program other than what is outlined on this page. Any other costs are your own choice (apparel, travel meets, etc.). The team’s goal is to make it possible for any member of the community to participate. Please see a member of the staff with any questions you may have. Financial incentive or scholarship opportunities may also be available.


Additional family member - 5% reduction fee for second child, 10% discount for 3rd, 4th, 5th etc. There is also an early-bird discount offered each season for swimmers who register before specific dates.

Installment Plans

The team offers opportunities to make payment according to different schedules. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have another solution or a question about billing. In the winter, a monthly payment plan is offered upon checkout. In the spring/summer, this is replaced by the three session format.
