2019-2020 MEMBERSHIP FINANCIAL MATTERS

As members of Tidal Wave Swimming, you need to be aware of several financial commitments which come with your child’s membership. Therefore, we request that you carefully read the following.  If you have any questions, please notify Coach Jim (jim_mcginnis@bellsouth.net).

REGISTRATION FEE

Each returning swimmer must pay an annual non-refundable registration fee of $150 if received by June 30, 2019.  After June 30th, the registration fee is $175.  This covers the cost of USA Swimming registration/Georgia Swimming, “Splash” magazine, 2 team t-shirts, one team cap and all maintenance fees dealing with emails and calling post communications.  A swimmer will not be allowed to begin practice until the registration forms and registration fee(s) are received. The registration fee for new swimmers is $175.  Additional team t-shirts can be purchased (for the swimmer or family members) for $15 each (Swimmers are expected to wear team attire at swimming functions).  Indicate the sizes desired on the registration form.
