USA Swimming Registration

The club holds a charter with USA Swimming and Illinois Swimming Inc.  A requirement of this charter is that EVERY SWIMMER must be registered with USA Swimming and Illinois Swimming Inc.  This registration provides mandatory liability insurance for athletes, as well as sanctioning competitions.  The registration is required once annually, and is renewed in September (or when a swimmer joining or returns to the club) All swimmers new to USA swimming, as well as any swimmers who return to the club at any point during the season are required to pay this fee.  This is a non-refundable fee for ALL swimmers, including those swimmers who withdraw during the first week of practice.

 

ALL SWIMMERS WILL BE REGISTERED FOR THE PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP FOR THE WINTER SEASON. ONLY SWIMMERS JOINING IN SUMMER ARE ELGIBLE FOR THE FLEX MEMBERSHIP.

 

USA Flex Registration.  This costs only $20.00  Your swimmer can only swim in two USA Sanctioned meets for the entire year, not including the championship meets.  This is a good option if you are new to swimming and just want to try it out or if you are using swimming as a way to cross train for another sport.  If your swimmer wants to upgrade to the Premium membership, the fee for the Flex Membership is applied to the upgrade.This is only allowed for swimmers 17 and younger.  

Premium Membership: The Premium membership registration is $83.00 for the 2021 - 2022 seasons. (9/1/2021 - 12/31/2022).  This includes unlimited meets for the entire year. It also allows for participation in Championship Meets.  

  

Those swimmers who transfer to our team from another USA team must fill out the Illinois Swimming Transfer Form, pay the $10 fee and send it directly to ISI.  

 

Fundraising Fee Per Family

This is a mandatory fee for all practice groups to offset costs of operating the team including pool rental, coaches training, and equipment purchase.  Swimmers will have the opportunity to fundraise the minimum during our Summer Fundraiser. Families who do not raisethe minimum during the fundraiser will be invoiced for this amount. The fundraising fee for the Winter 2021 - 2022 SC Season is $100

 

Equipment and Travel Expenses

All swimmers are expected to provide their own goggles, swim caps, suits, and towels.  Team suits and caps are mandatory for competitions and are purchased from the designated vendor.  Boys suits range from $40 - $48, and girls suit range from $60.

 

An $5 surcharge will be assessed per athlete at all meets. This fee supports paying coaches at meets.  For any meet requiring a hotel stay by our coaches, a $50 flat fee will be charged to the families if less than 10 swimmers attend.  If more than 10 swimmers are attending, the charges will be split evenly between the swimmers.  Furthermore, for sectional meets and above, swimmers attending are responsible for 50% of the coaches expenses.
