Fee Structure

Glenbrook Swim Club, a program of Glenbrook Aquatics, pays for its operating expenses through fundraising, hosting meets, and collecting registration and meet entry fees.  As a self-sufficient program, fees are calculated for each group/level based on the following factors:

  • Projected average enrollment;
  • Coach to participant ratio;
  • Number of instructional hours for each season;
  • Personnel expenses (e.g., stipends for Lead Age Group Coaches, hourly wages for Assistant Coaches); and
  • A per-participant amount to account for overall program operational expenses.

Beginning with the 2021-22 season, all non-residents of Glenbrook High School District 225 will be assessed a 10% surcharge on registration fees.  This surcharge recognizes the contributions residents make by paying property taxes to support the operation and maintenance of the aquatic facilities utilized by GSC at no charge.

Financial Commitment

Glenbrook Swim Club collects registration fees for each of its three seasons:

  • Fall;
  • Winter; and
  • Spring/Summer (Long-Course).

Registration fees include all costs for the season for the instructional program.  Additional fees that will be assessed to swimmers based on their participation level include:

  • USA Swimming annual fee ($85);
  • Meet entry fees;
  • Travel expenses for coaching staff attending meets; and
  • Travel expenses for students attending meets (typically, student travel is coordinated independently by each family).

Registration Fees for the 2021-22 Long Course Season

Registration fees for the 2021-22 long course season are as follows:

When registering, families will be provided the option to pay their registration fees in full by credit card or pay fees by paper check.  Families choosing to pay registration fees by credit cards will be assessed a processing fee of 3.1% + $0.30 per transaction.  (To keep fees low, we do not build credit card processing fees into our fees.)  Families who pay by paper check may drop off a check in the Glenbrook Aquatics payment drop box located outside the locker room entrance at Glenbrook North and Glenbrook South.
