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.
