FEES & COSTS

TRAINING FEES and OTHER COSTS

Metro Aquatics makes every effort to keep costs at a minimum. All training fees include dual meets and special clinics such as Racing Start and Safe Sport scheduled several times through the year.

 

As we do not have “uniform” other than swim caps, please expect to replace the worn/torn caps when need be ($5 for latex or $20 for silicone ones).

 

USA Swimming membership ($75/year) is required to participate in USA-sanctioned meets. USA Swimming sanctioned meets, both team-hosted and away, are additional and can cost $27 and more (usually, but not always, $20 to enter, and $7 per event to participate). For more information about swim meets, please go to our Swim Meets 101 page.

TAKING A BREAK?

We realize your swimmers have other activities and obligations. Therefore, at Metro Aquatics, you pay each session or month you participate.

 

Our Seasonal Swim Team is paid for by 10-week season (Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter), and we are not able to refund any unparticipated time.

 

Our Year-Round program is paid monthly, and you are able to take a break for any reason. You will not pay during those months you are on break. This includes taking time off to swim or otherwise participate in high school sports. Training fees are due before the first day of practice each pay period. The summer session spans two months.

 

Please notify us in writing to yienf@tacomaparks.com by the 21st of the month before to ensure accurate billing.

 

HOW TO STOP AUTOMATIC MONTHLY CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD?

If, for any reason, you wish to stop the monthly training fees from being charged to your credit card on file, please notify us in writing to yienf@tacomaparks.com by the 21st of the month before.
