GROUP PRICING

Registration Costs include everything except your team suit. You can purchase a team suit in our Team Store, or use one from previous years if it is in good condition and fits.  Suits must be all black with no colored trim or markings.  All swimmers will receive a SUSA cap and those registered prior to the late registration deadline will also receive a team t-shirt.

Registration costs vary by location, group and registration period.  If you are swimming at Summit Athletic Club, the child does not have to be a member, but there are additional access fees if he/she is not (note: it is the CHILD who either is or is not a member -- not the parents).  Discounts are offered for families of 3 or more, as well as during our early registration period.  Fees are between $165-230 per summer.
