Family Admin Fees

This season we will have a one time $35 admin fee. Is used to pay for our website and accounting fees: It costs $2250 annually for these 2 fees and are passing half of the cost onto the families. $2250/2/31 (# of members) = $35 administrative fee to be paid during registration. The other half of these costs are raised through our annual golf outing.

 

Swimmer Tryouts/Evaluations

Swimmer evaluations will be completed on September 8th, 2021 or on Friday evenings for the remainder of the year. Coaches MUST approve swimmers prior to enrollment. Coaches have the final say on what group the swimmers belong in. If you have any questions about this, please contact Brianne Powers at [email protected]

 

 

Varsity & MS Swim Meet Nights

If a Varsity or MS Home Meets are on a weeknight that ATAC Practice is scheduled, ATAC will move up practice to after school for Intermediate, Advanced, and Senior Groups. The practice schedule may be adjusted by the head coach and will be kept up to date on the website google calendar.

 

USA Swimming Membership Fee

USA Swimming is a mandatory fee. It provides our team with additional insurance coverage. This is a one time, yearly fee and must be paid at registration. All Middle School and High School Swimmers are allowed to swim up to 2 USA-S meets during MS or Varsity Swim Seasons with their coach’s permission but must be a registered USA-S member.

 

This year ATAC will offer 3 types of memberships:

 

  1. Yearly membership
    • Cost $84.00
    • Recommended for 3rd year swimmer on up.
    • This level of membership includes if your child makes it to Zones, Sectionals, or Nationals.
  2. Seasonal membership
    • Cost $48.00
    • Seasonal Membership is good for 150 days of the year (Approximately 5 months)
    • Recommended for 3rd year swimmer on up.
    • THIS MEMBERSHIP IS ONLY FOR MEETS BELOW INDIVIDUAL SEASON ZONE, SECTIONAL AND NATIONAL LEVELS.
  3. Flex membership
    • Cost $20
    • Recommended to novice swimmers, who are under 12 years of age, or are in their 1st or 2nd year of swim.
    • Flex, like the year around athlete membership, is for a calendar year period. Also, like the
    • year-round membership, individuals applying for Flex membership on or after September 1 of the current year will receive membership through December 31 of the following year.
    • Swimmers who move to the full club membership within the same membership year will be able to credit the cost of the Flex membership toward the cost of their year‐round membership.
    • Swimmers may participate in two (2) USA Swimming sanctioned meets per membership year for meets below the LSC Championship level.
    • After swimming 2 USA-S sanctioned meets, swimmer may upgrade to Yearly membership and pay the difference between the two costs of the memberships.
    • THIS MEMBERSHIP IS ONLY FOR MEETS THAT ARE BELOW THE LSC (STATE) CHAMPIONSHIP, ZONE, SECTIONAL AND NATIONAL LEVELS.
    • ***IMPORTANT: Please note that you are unable to move from full-time club membership to flex and back within a membership year. Flex members may move up to full membership within the membership year or at the following years registration.

 

Fair Share Requirements

 

Volunteers are critical to the survival of our swim club as most all of our fundraising occurs at ATAC hosted meets. Everyone needs to do their part. Each family will be required to volunteer for 1 session at the October 30th Meet. If a family does not fulfill that requirement within the Short (September-March) or Long Course Season (April-July), their ATAC Account will be charged $50. There will be other opportunities to volunteer for social events during the session if you are not able to volunteer for these meets. Please contact our boosters if you need help finding a way to volunteer.

 

 

Registration Information

ALL swimmers should register at the following site:

  • Registering for our website can be done at https://www.teamunify.com/team/miaac/page/team-registration
  • This is where you will register for USA swimming, Admin fees, and for all competitions.

 

Competition Fees and Meets

 

  • Competition fees: We will NOT be collecting an upfront competition fee this season. USA-S Meets will be charged as stated in the meet packet for all individual and relay events.  Each time a swimmer signs up for a meet, fees for coaching at that meet will be added for that meet.
  • SWMSL meets: Are free unless indicated at time of sign-up
  • USA Meets: $15 Coach Fee per weekend NO REFUNDS after a swimmer signs up.

 

Payment Setup & Types:

  • Payment on our website must be made by credit card or ACH bank transaction through our website. MasterCard, Discover, and Visa Cards are accepted. This includes bank-cards that are Mastercard and Visa. See below for ACH payment instructions.
  • You must register online and submit your payment before attending practice. Swimmers that are not on the roster will not be allowed to practice.
  • At 30 consecutive days from the first day of the session or after attending 5 practices, or attending a swim meet, whichever comes first, half of the team fee will be refunded for first year swimmers only if they decide to leave the club. There will be no refunds given to returning swimmers.

 

ACH Payment Option and Transaction Fees

To help minimize these costs to our patrons, we are adding the option of ACH payments through your checking account as a method of payment. In the past we have not offered this and would like to add this as alternative to credit cards. ACH costs only $1.25 per transaction, so it is generally more cost effective. To set up your ACH information please go into your individual account and click on Setup AutoPay. Under Payment Setup you will click on Add Bank Account. You will need your bank account routing number and account number (both can be found on a check). Make sure you click Fees Associated with Your Account for your ACH payment method. Once you have done this save your payment setup. After you register, we will then charge your team account for the registration fees and your account will be charged on the first of the next month.

 

We recognize that some people will prefer the convenience of paying by credit card, so we will continue to offer that as an option, but the processing costs percentage will be passed on to the member.
