Please refer to our "Group Requirements" under the "Swim Groups" tab.

Q:  When should I register for the TITANS?

A:  There are a limited number of spots available in each practice group.  We encourage each family to register as soon as possible. If your group is full when you go to register, please contact us to get put on the waitlist.

A:  Each practice group has a unique monthly fee.

  • Challenge and Elite track swimmers are yearly contracted and billed 11 months of the year - September through July.

TITANS Prep swimmers have a $70 registration fee which includes a Flex USA Swimming Registration and a TITANS t-shirt.

 

Q:  Are there discounts for families with multiple athletes?

A:  Yes. Families with multiple active athletes in the Challenge and Elite tracks will receive a discount on the additional athlete’s fees. There is a 15% discount on the monthly group fees for the second swimmer, 20% for the third and all additional swimmers. Discounts apply to the swimmer’s paying the lesser amount each month. Jr. TITANS and Teen TITANS swimmers are not eligible for multiple swimmer discounts due to the flexibility of their programs.

 

Q: What is the Endowment Fund?

A: The Triangle Aquatic Center (“TAC”) Board of Directors is responsible for making sure that TAC is able to serve the year-round aquatic needs of the Triangle community for generations to come.   As a result, TAC has established a yearly, non-refundable, Endowment Fund (“Endowment”) to support the long-term mission and financial health and vitality of this nonprofit organization.  Establishing an endowment is a common practice among nonprofit organizations in order to create long-term financial sustainability.  Beginning September 1, 2018, a percentage of revenue from all TAC program fees, a Family Contribution from selected TAC TITANS swimming groups and community donations will be used to fund the Endowment.
