Program Fees and Fundraising Commitment
For a more detailed breakdown of the fees please click here.
In order to become a member in good standing with the Oakville Aquatic Club, each candidate must complete the online registration process including all forms and waivers, and they must make all required online payments by the due dates. The final opportunity to make payments is communicated annually but must be made prior to a swimmer starting pool training. If the payments are not made on time, your swimmer(s) will NOT be a registered member and therefore will not be permitted to train with the Club. Swimmers joining throughout the season pay a reduced fee based on the start date.
Fees may only be paid online according to the schedule set out by OAK at registration.
Swim Ontario & Swimming Canada Registration Fees:
Swim Ontario is the provincial governing body for swimming. All OAK swimmers must be registered annually with Swimming/Natation Canada (SNC) through Swim Ontario in order to compete in meets and to be covered for insurance. The OAK office will complete this registration on your behalf after the registration process has been completed.
Pursuant to article II of the club's By-laws, payment of stipulated fees are prerequisites for becoming and remaining a member of the club. No swimmer shall be allowed to participate in the activities of the club unless duly registered and in good standing with respect to the member's financial obligations.
Members will be notified in writing of the membership dues at any time payable. Overdue fees (by 30 days or more) are subject to a $20 late fee penalty. If the membership dues are not paid within sixty (60) days of the membership renewal date or notice of default, the Member in default will automatically cease to be a Member of the Oakville Aquatic Club.
All withdrawals must be made in writing to the OAK Office. The effective withdrawal date is the LAST DAY OF THE MONTH that the written request is received by the club. In every case of withdrawal, OAK shall retain all previously collected program registration fees and fundraising commitment fees, however no additional program or fundraising fees will be applied to the member account after that last day of the month of withdrawal. Note that all previously incurred swim meet, special event and volunteer point fees will still be charged to the member account. The Oakville Aquatic Club will not release for transfer any member who has failed to meet her/his monetary commitment. Membership to the Oakville Aquatic Club is provided on a full year basis. Although you may make membership payments monthly, it should be understood that leaving the club prior to the end of the season is discouraged, and families should make every effort to commit to the full swim season.
Meet fees will be billed to your Members account for all non-declined meets that your athlete is selected to attend. These must be paid within 30 days and are not refundable even if your swimmer does not participate in the meet. *Please be sure to check the deadline to decline your meet attendance in order to ensure you are not billed for meets that you will not be attending.
