Training Fees: Special Cases: High School Athletes

High school athletes participating in high school swimming through their respective high school must be registered with Velocity for the 2021-2022 season and will be required to pay a $50 per month maintenance fee to the team during their high school season.  This fee will allow high school athletes the ability to continue to train with Velocity during their high school season, attend USA Swimming sanctioned events during their high school season, will maintain their place on the team, and will allow any high school times achieved during an OBSERVED meet to be counted towards their USA Swimming times.  Maintenance months for girls swimming are September/October 2021.  Maintenance months for boys swimming are December 2021/January 2022

Training Fees: Special Cases: College Athletes

College athletes who will be attending college away from home, but who want to swim with the team during their breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring break) must first register with the team for the 2021-2022 swim year ($100), with the team, dues free, during their break.  Please contact the head coach ahead of time to make sure there is space available.

College athletes who are learning remotely and want to swim with the team will need to register with the team and pay their monthly dues, just as any other year round athlete.  If they return to school at some point, they just need to let the team know ([email protected]) and their account will be put on hold and no dues will be charged unless they return to the team full-time (such as in the summer)

College athletes who want to swim with the team in the summer of 2022 must register for the 2021-22 season and pay full dues for the months they are in the water.

Seasonal swimmers and Minnow swimmers do NOT have fundraising requirements.  There will be fundraising opportunities throughout the swim year.
