Monthly Dues

Monthly dues are billed the 1st of every month (February 1, 2018 is the final installment for short course).

Meet fees are billed prior to the meet.  Payments are due by the 15th of the month.  

Swimmer Groups

Swimmers are evaluated by the coaches.  Swimmers are placed in a group based on age, ability and skill level.  Your swimmer may or may not advance levels during the season.  Your fees will be prorated and adjusted as needed.

RETURNING SWIMMERS should register for their current group.   There have been some changes made to the group structure and names.  Please review the group descriptions under the Swimmer Info tab for more information. 

NOTE:  The group structure is subject to change depending on number and age of swimmers.  The coaching staff will determine where swimmers are placed and when they will be moved to another group.

Fees per Swimmer

The fees are the cost of pool time, coaches' salaries and other team expenses.

Meet Fees         

In addition to the above fees, if your swimmer attends swim meets the fees are usually $5 -$6 per event.  In addition, there is typically a $2 meet surcharge per swimmer. You are only charged for meets which your swimmer participates.  If you register for a meet, your coach will enter your swimmer in one to five events.   Relay entry fees are divided among the 4 swimmers in the relay.  If you do not want your swimmer to participate in relays please advise Coach Rick or add a note when you register for the meet. Meet Fees are billed prior to the meet. If you do not attend the meet, but were registered, you will still be billed the meet fees.  FAST pays meet entries to the host team prior to the meet.  There are no refunds.

Many FAST families use Scrip to help pay their fees.  The SCRIP program is an easy way for FAST Families to pay for swim fees by purchasing gift cards for the places they frequently visit. For each gift card purchase a percentage of the card’s face value is donated to the swimmer's account.  You can find more information under the Fundraising tab on our website.
