The Registration Process

We will be excepting credit cards only for the 2017-2018 swim season, through the website.  This user friendly, and secure process, will bill your credit card without having the worry of writing a check or exchanging cash.  The Team Unify system uses a third party billing system and any credit card information is stored safely. 

All payments are automatically pulled the 1st of the month.  You will receive an email, on the first of the month signifying this payment. If a credit card is removed, or expires it is your responsibility to make sure the monthly payment be made on by the 15th of the month after which time there will be an additional $10.00 late fee if payment is made. The website does support "On Demand" payment if you wish to pay off any fees on your own time.  On Demand payments cost an additional 2.9% of the payment being made.

When you register with TOPS, you will begin by paying a one-time $80.00 registration fee per child. Families with multiple swimmers will receive a $50 per child discount during registration.   The registration fee covers administrative costs, the End-of-Season banquet, and the one time online user fee.

If you choose to swim USA, there is a $175.00 fee, due upon registration, as well as, a completed USA Athlete registration form.  USA swimming is optional. Please consult the USA Swim section, in the handbook, for clarity and counsel.  For the Athlete form and/or Transfer form, go to the USA tab on the TOPS website.




Fees are broken down into four monthly payments. Monthly billing begins October 1st and families will be billed the first of every month through January.  Credit card payments will be automatically pulled the first of the month.  Any person wishing to pay by check, must have the monthly fee paid by the 1st  of that month, to avoid the $15.00 late fee.


Fees for the different Swim levels are generally equivalent to a child's roster or age level group. Some children may swim up a level or down a level depending on their needs in the pool. Levels will be assigned before the monthly billing begins.
