2.  The reimbursement will be for only one meet per month except for the Gulf Championship series which will extend to two meets for that month to allow those swimmers who qualify for the higher level LSC meet to compete.

3.  The reimbursement will be limited to Gulf Swimming Sanctioned meets at the Gulf Approved entry fee amount for the level of the meet, Open or Championship. Team Invitational or Open meets not on the current Gulf assigned meet schedule will be reimbursed only at the Gulf Approved entry fee amounts.

4.  Any swimmer surcharge will not be more than charged for a Gulf sanctioned meet of similar type.

5.  Submission for reimbursements of entry fees must be made after the meet date. Reimbursements may only be requested for actual swims at a specific meet. The first time a fraudulent request is submitted, it will be denied and a written explanation and warning will be issued informing the outreach member of the inaccurate statement being submitted to Gulf Swimming for reimbursement. If a family submits a second fraudulent outreach reimbursement request they will be removed from the outreach program.

If your swimmer qualifies for this program you are eligible for a $5.00 per year USA Registration fee.

In addition to these benefits, you will also receive reimbursement of 100% of individual meet entry fees for ALL Gulf sponsored USA Swimming sanctioned meets held in the Gulf.  To receive reimbursement after the meeting has ended, simply click HERE to print out  the form, complete it and mail it in to the Gulf Registration Chair.  Once it is confirmed that you participated in your events, you will receive a check for 100% of your entry fees to reimburse you for your out-of-pocket expenses.  We hope that this will encourage you to participate in as many sanctioned meets as you are eligible for.

We are continually looking for additional ways to assist you with following your desire to swim.  As additional benefits become available we will be sure to keep you informed so you may take advantage of them.
