2021-2022 Recreation Swim Team Dues & Payment Schedule

Beginning this fall, Bethel Park Recreation Swim Team is moving to a seasonal, tiered structure for team dues. 

Tier 1 (2 Seasons): Senior, Platinum, Gold, and South Park 1 will be 2-season groups with separate registration and dues for the Short Course (Sept to Mar) and Long Course (Apr to Aug) seasons. These groups will have the option to pay the full-season dues at registration or in 3 installments, in which case the first installment is collected upon registration and the following installments are collected on the 1st of the subsequent months. There will be no refund for those who choose not to complete the season.

Tier 2 (4 Seasons): Silver, Bronze, and South Park 2 will be 4-season groups with separate registration and dues for Fall (Sept to Nov), Winter (Dec to Mar), Spring (Apr to May), and Summer (June to July). These groups will pay the full-season cost upon registration.  There will be no refund for those who choose not to complete the season.

Dues and Registration Fees are processed through our Team Unify website (www.bprswim.org).  

  • You must maintain a valid payment method (credit card or ACH).

Multi-Athlete Discount: Families with more than one swimmer will benefit from a discount of their total dues based on the number of swimmers. The discount structure is detailed in the table below.

2021-2022 BETHEL PARK SHARKS PROGRAM

The Sharks is an extension of our summer league program, where athletes will be introduced to the sport of competitive swimming with daily instruction in the four competitive swimming strokes as well as legal starts and turns.  The Sharks will swim 5:00-5:45 p.m. Monday-Thursday. 

Our goal for this program is to make it free-flowing and have an open door policy.  Athletes who register for Sharks (you can do so at www.bprswim.org by clicking ‘Start Registration’) will pay a monthly fee of $60.00 that is billed on the first business day in October, November, December, January, February, March, April, and May.  Athletes can join the group at any time during the year (i.e. - after soccer or football season ends).  There is no attendance policy for this program, we simply want to leave the door open for those athletes who may want to join after a different sport ends or use swimming as a cross-training sport between seasons.  This revolving door philosophy also allows us to move athletes into the Bronze Training group as soon as we feel they are ready. Please know, we will not move any swimmer into the Bronze Group without parent consent.  If you are content with your child remaining in the Sharks Program, we will keep them there and make sure they are getting the work they need.
