WHY FUNDRAISE: Allows families to reduce the amount of money paid out of pocket for Supplemental Fees.

SUPPLEMENTAL FEE AMOUNT: The Supplemental Fee amount is based on number of swimmers per family.  This fee could potentially change every year.  The Supplemental Fees due December 11, 2017, are as follows:

  • One Swimmer $195*
  • Two Swimmers $390*
  • Three or More Swimmers $510*

* The Supplemental Fee has been significantly reduced because of the fundraising dollars earned for the Swim-a-thon and the Kroger Community Rewards Program!

SUPPLEMENTAL FEE DEADLINE:  December 11, 2017. The fundraising period is December 10, 2016 – December 11, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTAL FEE PAYMENT PROCEDURE: Please make checks payable to the Countryside YMCA Torpedoes Swim Team and place in the locked black mailbox located on the wall outside of the Swim office.  All payments must be placed in the lockbox by closing on December 15th. If payment by check is not received by December 15th, your account on Team Unify will be charged the total amount plus a 5% service fee on January 1st. 

SUPPLEMENTAL FEE STATEMENTS: The Supplemental Fee Statements are no longer distributed through email.  Your fundraising efforts are found in your account information under fundraising . It is your responsibility to ensure that you are reviewing all information for accuracy. If you have any changes or questions related to your statement you must contact the Fundraising Chairperson in a timely manner.

TYPES OF FUNDRAISING: There are two types of ways to earn dollars for Supplemental Fees.  The first is traditional fundraising for a non-profit organization.  All the money that is fundraised will go directly to the team account (per IRS requirements).  The second type of type is a rebate program, which allows us to direct the funds earned to individual accounts.

Traditional Fundraising:

1.   Kroger Community Rewards Program

2.   Swim-a-thon

3.   LaRosa's Buddy Cards

4.   Championship Yard Signs

5.   Team Decals


Rebate Program:


SUPPLEMENTAL FEE OBLIGATION:  The Supplemental Fee obligation is incurred if you are active on the team roster two weeks after practices start for the Winter (Short Course) Season.  The Head Coach and Fundraising Chairperson must receive written notification within one week of the swimmer’s decision for this obligation to be waived.

SUPPLEMENTAL FEE WITHDRAWAL: Official notification of withdrawal is required regardless of tenure on the team or attendance habits otherwise the Supplemental Fee will be owed and enforced through the YMCA. Specifically, if you just stop coming to practices without telling your coach, the head coach, and the Fundraising Coordinator you will be charged.

SUPPLEMENTAL FEE TRANSFER:  If your Supplemental Fee account is over funded at the end of the Supplemental Fee Period you are able to request a transfer at that time to your National Team Fees should you have a National qualifying swimmer (as long as all Countryside YMCA financial obligations are current) Transfer request will then need to be submitted in writing to the Fundraiser Coordinator by December 15th.
