CGAC FEES AND BILLING INFORMATION
We understand the importance of knowing up front the financial obligations associated with being on our team. This page is made available to provide that information.
USA Swimming: All swimmers must register or re-register with USA Swimming. The annual fee for USA Swimming is $65.00 per swimmer (this fee is prorated if your swimmer joins in the spring), and is due upon joining the team. All renewals are due in September. This fee goes directly to USA Swimming to cover swimmers in the event of an accident. $7 of the fee is sent to Indiana Swimming, Inc., our local swim committee. CGAC does not retain any of this fee.
Family Registration Fee: Each family is charged an annual registration fee to cover administrative costs associated with our team. The registration fee is $100 per family ($50 if joining in the spring) and is collected at registration (usually in September). The registration fee also covers the cost of a team T-shirt and a latex CGAC swim cap for each swimmer.
Monthly Dues: Monthly training fees are based on your swimmer's assigned training group and due on or around the 1st of the month and are considered late after the 15th of the month. Monthly dues are not prorated and are not based on attendance of the swimmer or pool availability. If the swimmer chooses not to practice, full dues payment is still expected. If a swimmer is going to be absent for an extended amount of time, families may request a temporary suspension in writing to the coach and club treasurer for that swimmer. CGAC encourages all swimmers to practice as much as possible every month to build their skills and drop their times.

Multi-Swimmer Discount: Discounts are provided for families with more than one swimmer on our team. Discounts are not added up, if the number of swimmers registered increases. The highest training group will be billed at the normal rate and the discount is taken off the lowest training group fee:
- 2nd swimmer: $15 discount off monthly training fees
- 3rd swimmer: $20 discount off monthly training fees
- 4th swimmer: $40 discount off monthly training fees
Autopay: Members may input their credit/debit card information to the Team Unify system on our team website. CGAC pays all credit/debit card transaction fees for our families. Fees will be debited on the 1st of each month for all dues and fees outstanding on their account. Autopay is a once a month charge system. We highly encourage families to use the autopay feature.
Mailing Address: CGAC, Attention Coach Jim Todd, 2717 S. Morgantown Rd., Greenwood, IN 46143.
Non-sufficient Funds Fee: Members will be liable for a $40 bank fee for non-sufficient funds. Bank fees are subject to change.
Meet Fees: Meet fees are typically based on the number of events a swimmer is entered in for a meet (Typically, $4-$5 per event). Meet entry fees will be invoiced to each members account after the meet has occurred. After the final meet entry deadline has passed, meet entry fees are NOT refundable and will be billed, even if your swimmer cannot swim, for any reason.
Late Pick Ups from Practice Fee: It's imperative that all swimmers are picked up within 15 minutes at the end their scheduled practice. Our coaches work full time jobs and spend each evening with our swimmers at practice. Any swimmer not picked up within 30 minutes from the end of their practice with no email or notification will be charged a $20 late pick up fee to their account. This fee will be imposed to protect our swimmers safety and respect our coach's time.
Leave of Absence: In the event a swimmer needs to take a leave of absence for the team for any reason, the coach AND the treasurer must be notified within 5 days prior to month of the leave of absence. All outstanding balances must be paid prior to going on LOA, or the account will be considered overdue and there may be potential late fees on unpaid balances.
Past Due Accounts: Effective September 1, 2017, all accounts over 60 days past due will no longer be able to use the electronic meet entry feature to enter their swimmers in meets and CGAC will exercise an 'out of the water' policy. In addition, repayment schedule must be arranged with the Treasurer within 2 weeks of being notified of a delinquent account. The repayment schedule must be honored, and paid in addition to monthly charges. The goal is to bring the account to zero as quickly as possible and to pay in full each month thereafter. Failure to honor the repayment schedule will result in the swimmers removal from the roster until all outstanding charges are paid in full.
