Meet Fees

Meet Fees Explanation

CYAC participates in three types of meets:  dual meets, invitationals and championships.  These meets have varying fees associated with them. 

Well-ahead of the actual event, invitational and championship meets will publish a meet invitation containing all the information you will need to know about the meet.  Some examples of the information include:  meet dates, entry rules, event line-up, awards, etc.  It will also have a section on 'Fees'.  The fees listed are usually broken down into three areas:  Indiv. event fees ($x/event entered), Relay fees, and Swimmer Surchages.  These fees are what CYAC pays to the host.

When CYAC enters a swimmer in a meet, the swimmer will be charged a per-event fee plus any swimmer surcharge levied by the host.  The per-event fee charged to the swimmer will be greater than that posted in the meet invitation as CYAC will add an amount to cover relay costs and coach travel expenses.
