2020-2021 COMPETITIVE TEAM MEMBERSHIP FINANCIAL MATTERS

 

An annual non-refundable registration fee of $250 payable online through the Dynamo website is required for each swimmer, or as a rolling registration for returning swimmers on June 1 each year.  New swimmer registration will begin on June 10. Those returning from previously being on the team simply contact our Billing Coordinator, Brian Wrighton ([email protected]).  The annual registration fee covers the cost of USA Swimming/Georgia Swimming Registration, a subscription to the informative “Splash” magazine, team t-shirts (not including the end of season championship t-shirts), as well as hospitality for our meet officials. This fee will also help offset home meet heat sheet costs as they will now be provided for free online.  Swimmers will not be allowed to begin practice until the registration fee is received. 

*Please note that when registering with Dynamo, you must select the option to have the credit card used for registration remain on file in order for your monthly invoices to be paid automatically.

Going forward after your initial registration, subsequent registrations will be charged to your account on the 1st of June annually and will constitute a ‘rolling registration’.

 

RECURRING MONTHLY CHARGES - TEAM DUES

The swim year runs from August 1 to July 31 each year. The dues schedule is below:

Payment Schedule-Nine Monthly Payments 

No team billing charges will occur after 9 monthly payments have been received from a swimmer.  In the event a swimmer voluntarily opts to suspend membership at anytime prior to the receipt of 9 consecutive Team Dues installments, the swimmer remains financially responsible for the full 9 monthly Team Dues installments for that Season.  If a swimmer is moved to a practice group that is different from the one initially registered for prior to payment of the nine monthly installments, billing will be in the amount of the new group rate for each remaining month of the 9 monthly installments.  *The first of the 9 Team dues installments will be due August 1 and installments will continue to be due on the first of each month until nine monthly payments have been received or until July monthly billing, whichever may come first.

If a swimmer registers and begins swimming anytime between August 15 and December 31 Team Dues are considered paid after the receipt of 9 payment installments.

If a swimmer registers and begins swimming anytime after January 1, Team Dues must be paid each month beginning January and continue through July.

The first of 9 Team dues installments is due on August 1st and dues installments will continue to be due on the first of each month until nine monthly payments have been received or until July 1, whichever comes first.

NON-RECURRING MONTHLY CHARGES

Please carefully review your courtesy billing summary that is emailed to the primary email on your account on the 28th of each month to make sure you are aware of and prepared to pay the correct amount.  Non-recurring charges such as meet fees, cap fees, towel fees, or special t-shirt fees may be added to your recurring monthly dues and are due in full on the 1st of each month.  A $25 late fee is automatically billed to any account for which the total outstanding balance has not been received by mail at the Chamblee Dynamo Swim Center by  the 10th of each month.  For each meet a swimmer signs up to attend, a $3 fee to cover Dynamo’s administrative and club costs at each meet is charged to the swimmer’s account in addition to the host team's individual event charge fee and any surcharges per athlete. Because meet fees must be paid by Dynamo in advance, these fees will not be reversed if a swimmer fails to attend a meet for which s/he signed up to attend, regardless of reason (medical etc).
 

PAYMENT PROCEDURES

The total outstanding balance, which includes recurring charges of team dues and nonrecurring charges for meet fees, caps, etc., and any other financial obligations are due on the first day of each month. For improved efficiency and security in accounting, Dynamo billing is able only to accept payments for team dues and other team fees in the following ways:

      1. Online draft from Visa, Mastercard, or Discover payment card or ACH bank draft. (PREFERRED)

      2. Mail payments to the following:

        Dynamo Swim Club
        ATTN: Holly Welch
        3119 Shallowford Rd. NE
        Chamblee GA 30341

       (allow 7-10 business days for your payment to be received and posted by Dynamo billing)

If the total outstanding balance on an account is not received by the 10th of each month, a $25 late fee will be assessed.  A $25 fee will also be assessed for all returned checks. 

If a swimmer leaves the program before the end of the fiscal year or after the 5th day of any month, there is no refund of monthly dues under any payment option.

 

DISCOUNTS

*** Multi-Swimmer Discounts for families with more than one swimmer are applied from the most expensive swimmer to least expensive swimmer (dues only) as follows:
•    2nd swimmer=10% off
•    3rd swimmer=20% off
•    4th swimmer=30% off
•    5th swimmer and above = free

 

IMPORTANT FINANCIAL NOTES

-For any billing quesitons, including monthly billing statements, please contact [email protected]

     -Swimmers will not be allowed to participate in the Dynamo program if their financial obligations to the Club are more than 30-days delinquent, unless alternative arrangements have been made with the team billing coordinator. 
 
      -Dynamo does not pro-rate monthly dues.  If a swimmer is registered and/or participates during the first 15 days of any month, the full monthly dues installment is required.   
 
      -A swimmer is not withdrawn from the program until both the coach and the billing department have received email notification of the departure 10 days prior to the next invoice posting date, which always falls on the 1st of the month.  Without this email notification being received by the billing dept, billing will not be stopped or refunded. Please do not rely on a coach to relay this type of information to the billing department; it is the member's responsibility to contact Brian Wrighton, who handles team billing, with a request to suspend a swimmer. 
 
     -$25 Re-activation fee is posted to an account each time a swimmer's member status changes from "suspended" to "active" during the same season.
