​Monthly Billing

We use the Team Unify platform to manage all our billing online. You must create an online account to register for Rocket Fish Swimming. All charges for monthly dues, swim meets, team gear or other accrued charges will post to your account throughout the month and will automatically charge to your card on the first of every month. You will receive an invoice from Swim Focus each month before charges post to your CC. 

Proration

You can join our program at any time:

  • If athlete enters the program on the 1st–15th of the month, full dues will be charged.
  • If athlete enters the program on the 16–31st of the month, half dues will be charged. This is the only pro-rate offered. No pro-rating for flat-fee registration groups. There are no refunds or pro-rating for months that are not “used” unless a medical emergency has occurred within the first two weeks of the month and immediate notice has been given.
