Multi-Swimmer Family Discounts:

  • Families with two or more swimmers receive discounted dues.
  • Annual Fundraising obligations are capped at $500 per family.


Swim Meet Fees:

  • Swim meet fees are fees assessed for participating in a swim meet. They are billed in addition to the monthly dues.
  • The fees for each swim meet are set by the host team.  This information always is located in the published Meet Information for that meet and available for viewing before you register for the meet.
  • On average, the fees per swimmer for a meet are $40-60. The breakdown of these fees generally includes:
    • a deck/facility fee ($10-20)
    • LSC fees ($2-5)
    • a fee for each individual event that a swimmer wishes to enter ($3-5)
    • a fee for each relay event that a swimmer wishes to enter ($5-7).
  • If the meet host allows deck entries (registering for the meet while on deck at the meet), those fees are typically double the published rate.  If allowed, a swimmer who wishes to swim a Time Trial pays an additional fee in cash on deck.
  • When CA hosts a meet, every CA family is charged a $10 Meet Host Fee to help cover the overhead costs of hosting a meet. This is in additon to the fundraising obligation and does not count toward it.
