Meet Entry Fees

Swimmers may voluntarily enter meets by signing up via the SSC website.  Entry fees vary by meet and will be charged if the swimmer is signed up for the meet. Please keep in mind that teams charge SSC for meet events upon entry and that these fees must be paid regardless of whether or not the swimmer actually swims in the meet. Once the signup deadline for the meet has passed you are responsible for the meet fees. No swimmer will be allowed to sign up for a meet if their account is 31+ days past due.

 

Multiple Swimmer Discount

For each swimmer in excess of two per family, payments of dues are reduced by 50% for the additional swimmer(s) in the least expensive practice group(s). 

  • Example: A family registers three swimmers for the year 2022-23 (two Bluefins and one Shark) on the monthly payment option. The two Bluefins would be assessed the full amount of $184.58 per swimmer per month.  The Shark swimmer would be assessed 50% of the monthly dues of $161.93 x 50%= $80.97 per month.
 

Late Fee

A late fee of $10 will be assessed to any account that is not paid in full by the 15th of the month.

 

Late Registration

Any swimmer who has an outstanding balance or has not completed their online registration and turned in the required documents by the first day of practice will not be allowed to practice until the online registration and payment are received. New members must also submit a copy of their birth certificate or passport to [email protected].
