Welcome to the Mt. Vernon Swim Team Electronic Registration platform for our upcoming swim season! We are pleased to offer electronic payment processing and registration. The process is simple for both new and returning members. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you to easily declare for swim meets, sign-up for jobs, see your childrens' swim time histories, maintain your own contact information, and more.

Below are the monthly swim dues per swimmer. A multi-swimmer discount is applied for siblings. A one-time registration fee of $50 will be assessed at time of registration in addition to a one-time USA Swimming registration fee (see below).   Fees charged to credit card/ACH payment will be taken out on the first of each month. Fees paid by check are due on the 1st of each month. Swimmers will not be allowed to participate in practices or meets if dues are not paid in full by the due date each month. We pride ourselves on keeping costs down for families through being a strong volunteer organization.  You will find our fees and dues are very competitive with any other options in the area. 
 
Please reach out to Coach Kaiti at [email protected] for an evaluation if your swimmer is new to the club or if you are a past member interested in moving up to a higher level. Swimmers age 8 and below with no swim team experience can sign up for the Guppy group without an evaluation.

MTV Swim Team Annual Registration Fee - MTV charges a yearly registration fee of $50 dollars to help offset the cost of yearly fees not associated with coaching.  The club will host meets and fundraisers in an effort to keep this registration cost to a minimum.

USA Swimming Registration Fee - USA Swimming charges a yearly registration fee of $83. This goes directly to USA Swimming to provide your national registration and insurance for the next year.  ALL NEW COMPETITIVE SWIMMERS MUST BRING A COPY OF THEIR BIRTH CERTIFICATE the first week of practice. We are not able to complete your USA swimming registration without this. This fee will be automatically billed to your account upon registration at the beginning of winter season. 

Billing Schedule: - Members will be charged dues based on when they register and the group they are joining (talk with the Coach to ensure you are signed up with the proper group). Reach out to Sarah Wagner, Treasurer, if you sign up after the first of the month and would like your dues prorated that month.  Throughout the season, dues are billed / charged to your credit card / bank account and invoices are emailed on the 1st of the month.  Pro-rating has to be entered manually.  The initial registration will charge a full month of dues. Pro-rating is provided for swimmers who choose to participate in other sports and are going to join late or discontinue swimming to participate in another sport (monthly dues will NOT be adjusted for breaks like vacations, etc...).  

IMPORTANT!!

If you are going to step away from swimming for any amount of time and billing needs to be stopped or adjusted, it is YOUR responsibility to notify the team in advance, NOT just the coach.  Please send an email to the Team admin or treasurer.  Your account will then be adjusted accordingly.

Parents, please make sure to review the Team Handbook found on the website to review your committments regarding volunteering and home meet obligations.


We look forward to having you join the Mt. Vernon Swim Team and are excited for another great season!
