ADDITIONAL OBLIGATIONS AND FEES:

Swim-A-Thon: WWSC holds a Swim-a-Thon fundraiser with proceeds going to the team to pay for pool rentals and other expenses. Each swimmer is required to raise a minimum of $200; multiple swimmer families have a per family minimum of $300. Swimmers joining after December 31st are not held to these minimums, but are encouraged to participate. For more information, please see the Swim-a-Thon document under the documents tab at wwswim.org.

JANUARY STORM and SWEET ONION MEET: WWSC hosts January Storm at the beginning of January each year. In June, WWSC hosts the Sweet Onion Meet in the City’s 50-meter outdoor pool. Swimmers who are ready to compete are required to participate in the meet and parents are required to assist with meet operations. There will be a sign up page online. These are major fundraisers for WWSC and take all members participating to put on successfully.

SERVICE HOURS: Service Hours are vital to our organization. WWSC has a required minimum of 20 hours of service time per family per year or 2 hours for every month a swimmer is on the team that year. Unfulfilled service hours will be billed on July 31st at a rate of $10 per hour not served. Some of the areas we need support in include: January Storm, Sweet Onion, other team hosted swim meets, Wa-Hi swim meets, Whitman swim meets and other team events. Please see the service hour document at wwswim.org for more information.

SAFE SPORT PARTICIPATION: WWSC is committed to following all guidelines of USA Swimming's Safe Sport program in order to provide "a healthy and positive environment free from abuse for all its members." To that end, we ask all families to complete the photo release policy as well as participate in the Safe Sport trainings offered by WWSC. These trainings will occur twice a year and will be offered both in-person and online. Each family is required to have one parent or guardian attend each meeting.

Monthly Late Charge

Payments on outstanding balance of the account should be made on last day of the month. They have a grace period of 14 days before a late fee of $20 is assessed to the account on the 15th of the next month.

Service hour shortage

This fee is assessed for any outstanding hours not served. $10 per hour not served assesed on July 31st. 

Breach of 11 Month Installment Payment Plan

If a swimmer is signed up for the 11 Month Installment Plan and then leaves the team, there will be a fee imposed, except in cases of extenuating circumstances. The amount charged is the difference between the month-to-month rate, minus the 11 month installment plan rate, multiplied by the number of months the swimmer was on the team that year.

An example using the Bronze group: the difference between the monthly rate ($95) and the 11-month rate ($80) is $15. If a swimmer registers in September and leaves in February, 6 months have passed, and the account will be charged $90 (6 x $15) to retroactively pay the monthly rate. The board believes that this is an equitable way to be fair to all swim families and the club budget. Please email [email protected] if you have more questions.
