Sailfish Swim Club has a financial aid / scholarship program that exists for the sole purpose of helping members through periods of financial hardship. It is not intended as a recruiting tool nor is it available to swimmers that have graduated from high school. The program is designed to cover the cost of the swimmer’s dues for a period of one year. The eligibility period runs from the beginning of the short course season, typically September, through the end of the long course season the following August.

Members seeking assistance should contact the Coach Sean and submit a letter of explanation for review. Eligibility is not automatic as there is limited aid available. Families that apply will have to comply with the requirements set forth below. Failure to do so can lead to the termination or lack of eligibility for aid. Please return the completed financial need letter in a sealed envelope marked Financial Aid to Coach Sean.
