FAQS

Our family is new to swimming.  What do we need to know?  Welcome to SEA!  We are so excited that you are here.  All new families will receive a New Parent Handbook with a wealth of information about swimming in it.

What is the difference between Club Swimmers and Recreational Swimmers?  Club Swimmers have more individualized and challenging practices.  They are also eligible to compete at more competitive/upper level meets.  Recreational Swimmers compete in the Greater Iowa Swim League and are able to sign up for limited USA level dual meets.

Are there fees in addition to the programming cost below?  Yes.  The cost below pays for your programming fees (coach's pay, pool rental, practices, etc).  If you choose to sign up to compete at USA meets, a fee will be assessed per meet.  Meet fees vary from meet to meet. When you sign up for a meet, these fees will be billed directly to your account. Additionally, Recreational Swimmers must have a pool pass.

Is there a cost to be a member of USA Swimming?  Yes.  All SEA swimmers are required to be a member of USA Swimming.  This $78 fee will be billed directly to your account.  Your swimmer's USA Membership will be current for both the Winter 20-21 and Summer 21 seasons.

How can I make payments?  We are now able to accept credit card!  You will be asked to connect your credit card to your account during registration.  When paying by card, a $.30 fee and 2.95% processing fee per transaction will be added to your account.  You may also pay by ACH -direct payments from your bank.  ACH may not be used for initial registration purposes, but may be used for monthly billing thereafter.  A flat $1.25 processing fee will be charged per transaction.

Can I pay all my fees up front?  Yes, families are welcome to pay their total fees at the beginning of the season.  If you choose to pay registration fees in full at the beginning of the season, only one transaction/processing fee will be assessed.  A reminder: Meet fees will be billed to your account as they happen, so you may have additional payments to make through the season.
