* Each USA swimmer will have a "Splash" account created for them. From this account, we will deduct meet entry fees for USA meets throughout the season. We estimate meet entry fees for most swimmers to be around $200, this will depend on the number of meets and events swum throughout the season. We will collect $100 (per swimmer) upfront for this account. When your account balance reaches $40 or less we will send you a reminder to add additional funds. You will also have the option to add more than the minimum $100 when registering the swimmer. Any balance left in the account at the end of season will simply rollover to the next season, you do not loose this money.
** Those with a balance from a previous season will have their balance rolled over in addition to the $100 collected for this season. If you have questions about this please contact Nick munselln@salineschools.org.
