Swim Meet Entry Fees

There are three components to the Entry Fee for swim meets. The host club charges a “per event” fee, which is usually $3.00-$8.00 per swim event. USA Swimming charges a participation fee, which is usually $2.00-$3.00 per swimmer. ORCA charges a coaching fee, which is $10 per swimmer for meets within 50 miles of RI or $20 per swimmer for meets farther than 50 miles to cover expanded coaching coverage during meets and to help with coaching travel costs. The average cost for a swim meet is $35.00. If you sign-up for a meet and DO NOT participate YOU WILL still be charged for the meet fees and are required to make payment. This is because the club still has to pay the hosted club fees for the events that you signed up for regardless of if your swimmer swims the events or not. Swim meet fees may be due in advance. Additionally, the swimmer may not be able to register for swim meets if there is a past due balance on his/her account until the account is current.
