Program Fees & Payment Options/Schedule

Please note that KBM now only* accepts credit card payments.

(*Exceptions can be made for those choosing to pay the single payment option with a cheque.)

The following table indicates the Fee Payment options for the KBM programs, but does not reflect the other charges that are noted in "Other Fees" below the table.

During the online Registration process, you are only required to make payment for the non-refundable downpayment indicated in the right-most column in the table below.  Your first 'normal' payment based on the payment option/schedule you select during registration, will be charged to your credit card on October 1.  The downpayment made at registration will be credited back to your KBM account just before October 1.

On every first day of each month throughout the year, your credit card will be charged with any balance on your KBM account at that time.


Governing Body Fees

The governing body fees are paid to the regulatory bodies (i.e. Swim Ontario and Swimming Canada) for competitive swimming.  These fees are not refundable. The Governing Body Fee will be invoiced approximately 5-8 weeks after registration and is non-refundable.

Swim Meet Entry Fees

Approximately $8-$10 per race + meet surcharge of $0-$25 (typically $12)

You can expect to pay Meet Entry Fees and a meet surcharge of $12 for any competition your swimmer is entered into during the course of the year.  As a competitive swim team, all competitive swimmers are expected to register for meets during the season. The purpose of this is to develop an understanding of the competitive environment and foster a team atmosphere. These fees will get invoiced to your KBM account anytime within 0-8 weeks after the meet. These fees are not refundable unless a swimmer withdraws well in advance of the meet date.  Unfortunately, even if your swimmer is sick or otherwise is unable to swim their races at the meet, these fees are still charged to you.


2019 Summer Swimming Fee (Optional)

$150 and includes summer meet fees

In order to help us schedule pool time effectively, Junior, Junior Performance, Senior and Senior Performance swimmers planning to compete past LC Regional champs will be asked to register for summer swimming which will run until the middle of July. In addition to championship meets for those who qualified, we will also be attending at least 1 meets with easier or no time standards.


Dryland Training Fee (Optional)

$100 or $200

For $200, our Senior and Senior Performance swimmers receive this dryland strength and conditioning regimen which is a key component for them.  Although not mandatory, it is highly recommended. With the deep discount, this fee is not refundable. Held at Foundry Athletics.

For $100, our Junior swimmers are encouraged to take part in a strength and stretching program taking place at Queens, provided by Focus Fitness.


Late Payment Fee

Payments of other fees and charges are due within one month; overdue accounts may be subjected to a 4% late penalty fee, that will continue to be levied each month until the overdue amounts are paid.


Volunteer Commitment Fee (May be waived as below)

In order for our meets to run effectively and therefore be successful, we need the ongoing support of our families on meet days.  KBM has adopted a minimum participation policy for the Main Competitive Program swimmer families (as is common practice with other teams) to ensure that we have the help we need each swim season. Therefore, as part of your registration, you will be required to agree to meet the volunteer commitment or pay by the end of the season a Volunteer Commitment Fee amount, (refer to chart below).  The chart indicates how many sessions (typically ½ of a competition meet day) you must volunteer for and the level of officiating required.  Below are the number of sessions that are typically available at our KBM hosted swim meets to provide opportunities for families to fulfill their volunteer commitment:

Oct 2018 Pentathlon Meet - 1 session
Dec 2018 Distance & Development Meet - 3 sessions
Feb 2019 SC Heats and Finals Finale 6 sessions
May 2019 Season extender - 4 sessions

Refunds

It is the practice of KBM that swimmers leaving during the season for which they have enrolled in, may be entitled to a partial refund, but the amount is never a straight pro-rated amount. The later in the season the withdrawal occurs, the significantly less of a refund is provided.  Generally, once past the half-way point in the enrolled period, no refund is provided and the full registration amount must be paid.

The Treasurer will provide the exact amount based on when notification in writing (e.g. email) of the early withdrawal is received by KBM.

Note that refunds are not given whatsoever for registration deposits, dryland training, nor for governing body fees.
