2019/20 Storm Swim Club: Dues Schedule

Your dues go towards paying for coaching, pool rental, equipment and more.  We strive to keep fees low through fundraising (hosting swim meets) and we ask all members to plan to be an active member when it comes to volunteering to help these events run smoothly.

Meet Fees

The Storm Swim Club will add all meet fees to each swimmer's invoice throughout the season. Meet fees are generally between $15 and $60 depending on the number of events a swimmer has entered.  Every meet your swimmer attends will have a 5.00 team surcharge added to it.  This will help offset the cost of staffing coaches at our numerous swim meets.  This fee will not be added for hosted meets.

Storm Monthly Pay – FAQ’s

 

What’s the difference between “Seasonal” and “Yearly”?

Seasonal swimmers are registering for only Fall/Winter or Spring/Summer. If you are a full-time club swimmer, yearly might be an option for you.  The yearly option has several benefits, including: an approximate 5% savings vs seasonal and free March and August Training. Yearly swimmers will not be allowed to cancel or suspend their account.

What is HS Prep?

We have done away with Middle School and HS Maintenance and combined them into HS Prep. This option is for swimmers looking to stay in shape for their HS Season and gives them more options. In the fall swimmers can swim up to 2 practices per week with their appropriate group. During the winter, spring and summer they can continue that option or choose to attend the HS Prep practices on the calendar.  These will be offered after school in the winter and spring and in the morning during the summer.  Swimmers may attend meets and are expected to volunteer.

What is HS Girls/Boys?

This is a Fall/Winter option only.  It’s not a new group, as they will continue to be a part of Sr or Jr1/2.  The goal of these groups is simple: Give your swimmer access to Storm practices during their HS Season (AM workouts or make up practices if they’re forced to miss), allow them to sign up for meets (even during their HS Season) and receive emails about club events.  Billing will only be done when you are actively swimming with Storm (they will remain active, but not be charged during the HS Season).

My swimmer does other sports or needs a break, do I have to pay for the full season?

Seasonal swimmers may opt out if needed.  Simply send an email to coachchuck@mnstorm.org with a subject of “suspend/cancel membership”.  Then let him know what your situation is and we’ll work together to ensure you’re only charged for your time in the water.  We do ask that all emails requesting a cancellation or suspension of your membership be sent in by the 21st of the month preceding the requested change.  Below are a few examples of this situation:

  • John runs CC in the fall and starts Boys Swimming in December, but wants to get in the water before the winter season starts.  In this situation, register him for the correct group (possibly HS Boys).  Then, he’ll be charged for the month of November only and stay active if he wishes to return for year-end meets.
  • Sarah is struggling with balancing schoolwork and swimming and needs to step back to re-focus on school.  We understand that situations like this arise.  Again, send an email indicating when she’ll be pausing her membership and send an email back when she’s ready to get back in the water.

Can I pay with a check?

We are switching away from checks, but will still accept them in certain circumstances.  We are making it a requirement to save a Credit Card or ACH payment to our site to ensure meets, merchandise, Storm Reg fee and other costs are payed promptly. However, if you want to make a large payment up front, we will accept that and leave a credit on your account.

Can we adjust groups in the middle of the season?

Yes!  We'll still end out assessments at beginning of November, March and July each year.  If you move up a group we'll simply adjust the billing side and you'll be good to go.

I'm signing my HS Girl (or HS Prep Girl) up and it is charging me zero (during the months of August - October).  Is this accurate?

Yes!  By signing up now, your daughter can be an active member of Storm, but you won't be charged until November for her dues.  If you are signing up after November 1, you will be billed during registration
