Fees And Other Costs

Swimming families pay several kinds of fees:

Swimming Organization

Annual dues for memberships in the several organizations which are part of the hierarchy tasked with overseeing competitive swimming from the local pool to the Olympics.

Coaching

Payment to the coaching staff for their time, patience and expertise. CSSC's coaching fees are due monthly and must be paid by the 5th day of each month. If you fail to make the payment, you will be charged a $10 late fee. If the payment has not been received by the 15th day of the month, your child will not be allowed to take part in any swim club activities until the payment has been received. Payments can be made in person at the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex or Mullins Park Pool locations. If you are a current member of the Coral Springs Swim Club, you also have the option of making the payment over the phone by calling 954-345-2121.

Facility

Payment for a place to practice and other physical plant based services. CSSC families pay the Aquatic Complex of Coral Springs memberships fees which are due either quarterly or annually, depending on the contract the family chooses. City of Coral Springs Aquatic Complex memberships are for the use of the various complex facilities and are entirely independent of the Swim Club.

Meet Entry

Fees for swimming in sanctioned meets. Those fees include: meet host (facility) surcharge, coaching surcharge and event fee. Also, fines for violating the entry rules at sanctioned meets.

Gate

If you want to see your swimmer perform, your going to have to buy a ticket... unless you.... Volunteer! Also, there are t-shirts, and heat sheets, and refreshments to buy, of course.

Other Costs

It's not auto racing but age group swimming has its share of operating costs:

Swimsuits

Swim suits can be purchased at the swim shop located at the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex location. Check out the CSSC team suits! You will be amazed!

Training Equipment

Goggles, towels, sandals, flippers (fins), warm up suits (yes, even in South Florida), and parkas. Older swimmers will need to purchase their own training equipment, such as freestyle and/or stroke hand paddles, kick boards, in and out of water resistance equipment, flippers of various lengths for different kicking drills, and snorkel. 

Travel and Lodging

Away meets are sometimes very far away. Even our youngest swimmers will have the opportunity to compete in places like Clearwater, Key West, Largo (not the Key) or even Baton Rouge.

CSSC Social Events

The annual awards banquet, pre-meet pasta suppers, Halloween parties, etc. All have modest costs attached.

Fund Raisers

Band candy isn't just for the band.
