Annual Fundraising Requirement - Youth

To meet O2 Performance Aquatics financial obligations as a team, fundraising is a vital component of our income. Each year in the spring, O2 hosts a Swim-a-Thon where swimmers of every age-group level participate. Each swimmer is required to raise a minimum of $200 for this event whether they actually participate or not. Receiving pledges from friends and family is generally the way to accomplish this goal. If this goal is not met by each swimmer, the $200 (or difference between $200 and what is raised by each swimmer) will be assessed on the next invoice.  (Family max is $300) Termination from the team does not release the member from these obligations. (note O2 is a 501(c)(3) organization all donations are tax deductible)  

 Invoiced in month following the actual event or raised through Swim-a-thon donations

$200

Family Service Hours Obligation - Youth

O2 Performance Aquatics is a non-profit organization run solely by it member families. We strive to keep our rates as low as possible and still provide a quality program for our athletes. With this in mind, our volunteers are our life-blood. Each family is expected to provide a minimum of 10 hours of service for team activities throughout the year.  There are many service opportunities like the Swim-a-Thon, team social activities, serving on the Board of Directors. 

These hours may be provided by any member of the account or by extended family. A $10 per hour fee will be assessed on the August invoice for any volunteer hours not fulfilled. There are numerous opportunities offered throughout the year for volunteering as well as many ongoing positions with the team. Hours can be earned August 1 through July 31.

Meet Expenses - Youth

Once events are agreed to by the swimmer and are entered with the swim meet host team, the fees will be invoiced and payment will be expected regardless of whether the swimmer actually attends the meet or swims the events. Occasional team trip expenses may be required when the team travels to an away meet. 

Equipment

Each swimmer is expected to have specific equipment for training. These items are purchased by the athlete cost varies. See "Equipment" under the "O2 Swimmers" tab at the top of the website .   

Remitting Payments

When you register as a member of O2 Performance Aquatics you are agreeing to pay the dues for the swimmer's practice level that is set forth on the on this page. Each family is responsible for additional fees including, but not limited to, fundraising, meet fees, late fees and unfulfilled service hours. Dues may be prepaid at any time. Monthly fees are not prorated except when a swimmer is transferred to a different team within O2 by the coaching staff. In this case, the difference in dues of the two practice levels will be prorated for the remainder of the swim year.

If payment of a monthly invoice is not received in full each month and the account becomes 60 days over due, all swimmers of that family will be suspended from further participation in all O2 activities including, but not limited to, practices, events and swim meets. If the parent becomes delinquent in payment of invoice and assessments because of financial hardship, he/she may apply to the Treasurer for a waiver of late fees and suspension. A waiver may be granted by O2 if satisfactory arrangements are made for payment of the delinquent amounts.
