Payment of your invoice balance is due by the 15th of the month. When returning your payment please write your child’s name on the payment or return payment with the invoice. You may mail your payment to: Gold Coast Swim Team, P.O. BOX 1103, COOS BAY, OR, 97420, or leave payment in the Payment/Suggestion box in the office. Please make checks payable to GCST.
MEET ENTRY FEES:
When you sign up to attend a swim meet, the entry fees will be billed on your invoice. Please understand that GCST is paying the host team to sign your swimmer up for any meet you plan to attend. It is vital to the ongoing finances of GCST that you reimburse the team for your swimmer's meet fees. BECAUSE GCST IS REQUIRED TO SUBMIT ENTRIES AND MAKE PAYMENTS IN ADVANCE, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENTRY FEES EVEN IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND THAT MEET.
USA SWIMMING CARD FEE:
Swimmers must become members of USA Swimming, which provides your swimmer with secondary liability insurance. The charge is $68.00. This is an annual charge good January 1 to December 31 of a given year. This will be payable with your first month dues, and the annual renewal charge will automatically be billed to your November invoice for the upcoming year. There is a seasonal USS card that is $40.00, but is only offered April to August.
Prospective and past club swimmers may join GCST for the summer session through a seasonal membership through Summer Club. The cost for Summer Club is $150 which includes seasonal membership, and entry fees for one swim meet during the summer. Coaches will determine assignment to a practice group.
