PVST SWIM TEAM - SUMMARY OF EXPENSES
 
Below is general list of expenses and fees that a family can expect to pay throughout the swimming season as a member of the Portneuf Valley Swim Team.  This list is not all inclusive but should help with budgeting for the year.  If you have any questions, please contact Head Coach Nolan Morrell at 865-300-2093 or our team admin Heather Clarke 208-705-7753.
 
All payments must be made electronically via the team website. A credit card (Visa, Master Card or Discover) must be kept on file for monthly dues and meet registration fees. You may use a reloadable prepaid credit or debit card.

Registration Fees

A non-refundable deposit of $150 ($80 PVST fee per family/ $70 USA Swimming Registration per swimmer - OR New Flex USA Swimming Registration fee $20/year (2 meets only)) is due at the time of registration. Documentation is required to verify Birthday, so please provide a copy of your Birth Certificate when registering.  These can be emailed to portneufvalleyswimteam@gmail.com. Failing to bring that documentation by the first week of registration will result in delayed registration. Registration includes USA Swimming Registration fee, a PVST swim-team t-shirt, and 1 latex swim cap. (Swim caps can be upgraded to silicone for an additional $20 at the time of registration.)

Monthly Dues

September fees are due with Registration. A monthly payment will be due by the 1st of each month.  This fee will be charged to the credit card listed on your account on the 1st.  A $20 late fee will be assessed if payment cannot be processed by the 5th of the month.

Community Rec Center Membership

All swimmers MUST be members of the Community Recreation Center (CRC). Membership is $21 per month for the first youth member in a family, $21/month for the next family member, and $5/month per person after that.  Fees are paid through automatic bank account withdrawals and all members must have a membership card which is $5. Swimmers must scan their cards to enter the CRC. This membership includes all CRC membership privileges. (PVST does not process CRC memberships—this is set up directly with the CRC.)  Masters will not be required to have CRC memberships, but they must have a card. 


Service Hour Commitment (Not required for Masters)

PVST Swimming counts on its members to volunteer their time to promote unity and to enable the club to thrive by hosting successful events. 

Swim meets, fundraisers and other club events have specific jobs that will qualify for Service Hours.  Jobs will be posted for each event on the team website and will be available for selection on a first come basis. Some jobs may be restricted to individuals with specific training and/or qualifications, but there is plenty of work to go around.


Team Uniform and Swim Gear

We do not require swimmers to purchase a team suit.  Team suits will be available for those who would like to purchase on the website through the Swim Outlet.  A portion of your purchase will be credited to your fundraising commitment.

Each swimmer will receive a team t-shirt and 1 team swim cap prior to our first meet. Replacement swim caps are available throughout the season at $5 per latex cap and $10 per silicone cap.  These fees will be automatically added to your account when a swimmer needs an additional cap.


Practice Gear

Swimmers are required to wear competitive one piece swimsuits.  Absolutely no two piece swimsuits will be permitted for girls. Jammers are recommended for boys but the racer style is also an option.

Competitive goggles are a must to help swimmers see underwater and promote proper technique.  Absolutely no diving masks will be permitted.


Swim Meets - Fees

There is an additional charge for swim meets.  The fees are set by the swim team hosting the meet but will typically cost ~$20-30 per swimmer based on the number of events for which he/she is registered.  Away meets are optional. There will be a $15/ Swimmer surcharge for local meets in (Pocatello, Lava, Idaho Falls), or a $25/Swimmer Surcharge for travel meets (Boise, Twin Falls, Utah, Montana) added to your invoice. This helps pay for the coaches we send to the meets, so that the swimmers know what to do.

Meets are held on the weekends and are broken into 2 sessions per day - typically divided by age group.


PVST Swimming BBQ

PVST Swimming will host a BBQ at the end of the USA Swimming season.  Participation is not required but is certainly encouraged to celebrate our swimmers hard work and successes. 

PVST Fundraising

Each family has a $200 fundraising requirement. $100 will be billed in November, $100 in March.  Our main fundraiser is the Swim Challenge held in the fall.  All swimmers are required to participate in this fundraiser or pay the buy-out fee.   If your swimmer does not participate and you do not pay the fee, your account will be billed the appropriate dollar amount.  We plan to have many other ways to fundraise throughout the year.  We will have an Applebee's breakfast fundraiser and also we plan to have a swim outlet link on our site.  Save your receipts when you buy through swim outlet and 8% will go back to the team and will be applied to your fundraising.  Who doesn't need new gear?  Receipts will go to Heather Clarke and you can drop them in the PVST mailbox with a note that 8% applies to your fundraising.
