Swim fees update and Summer Swimming:

The Board of Directors pass a yearly budget based on yearly expenses. The analysis considers GO programming and expected operating expenses until our fiscal year-end of August 31, 2021. Swim fees, detailed in our  handbook (page 8), are established and payment installments are determined with the objective of doing what is best for the club’s long-term sustainability, maintaining our salaried coaching staff on contract to ensure continuity and ongoing success. Please be advised:

  1. GO Appreciation: Summer Training - No fees applied.
  2. End of Fiscal year for 2020-2021 is August 31, 2021.
