Registration Fee Information
It costs a lot of money to run a swim team. Part of belonging to any organization includes the responsibility to raise the money necessary for the group to operate. Income to meet these expenses comes from registration, voluntary fundraising events and corporate sponsorships. Each year, the SEALS Board of Directors evaluates the teams projected budget and sets the registration fees.
Registration fees for 2018 season are as follows:
1st Swimmer: $210*
2nd Swimmer: $200*
Additional Swimmers: $190*
*$15 of each registration is administrative and non-refundable at any time.
Your registration fee includes the following:
- Team swim suit
- Team t-shirt
- Team swim cap
- Coaches salaries
- End of season team party
- Ribbons and Awards
- Concession Stand Drinks and Supplies
- Website access for meet results , swimmer stats, and online meet signup
In addition to the above, registration fees help off-set the following overhead expenses:
- Facility and janitorial fees
- Website, software, and team administrative fees
- League fees
- Senior scholarships
Any fundraising activities held throughout the season are completely voluntary, but completely necessary. We try to make these events fun for both our swimmers and their families. Fun nights at the pool, dinners at local restaurants, or a painting with a twist are some of the fun events that our swimmers may be able to participate in this season.
As with other youth sports, there is also a need for volunteers to fill positions at swim meets. Swimming needs more volunteers than most other sports, approximately 100 people per meet. (Please see the team handbook for further information on volunteer assignments.) ALL FAMILIES WILL BE REQUIRED TO SHARE IN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF FILLING VOLUNTEER POSITIONS. Failure to meet this requirement will result in your child being excluded from meets.
If you have any further questions or concerns regarding fees or volunteer expectations, please contact a board member or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
