Welcome to the Edina Swim Club! Our fall season will begin on September 8th, 2020. This page contains details about dues & fees, volunteer information and fundraiser information. At the bottom of this page, you will find the link to register for club swimming.

Due to COVID-19 and new guidelines that began this summer, unfortunately no parents/spectators will be allowed in the buildings. All athletes will need to wear a mask entering facilities, keep on until swimming starts, and after practice until they are in a vehicle leaving the parking lot. Thank you for understanding. Safety is our top priority for our swimmers, coaches, and other building staff our members come into contact with during swim practice.

NOTE ABOUT CHANGES TO DUES AND CHANGES TO REGISTRATION TIME FRAMES FOR 2020-2021:
As we set dues for the Fall season, we looked at our pool costs, our coaching costs, and the number of swimmers that we are allowed in each group according to COVID facility restrictions.  We calculated dues to exactly cover these costs.  We also needed to account for the fact that we will not have any additional revenue coming into the club this year from hosting swim meets.  In the past, this revenue helped to offset some of our costs and reduced our dues. We further needed to account for the fact that we will be spreading our costs over fewer swimmers per group due to COVID capacity restrictions.  Based on these calculations, you will see an increase in dues for the Fall season relative to last year.  Of course, the club has no interest in profiting from our membership, and please know that we have been as conservative as possible and will not be making any money at all in this current budget.   We do, however, need to make sure that we are fully covering our expenses and not putting the club at financial risk.  We also recognize that the current situation is fluid due to the realities of COVID.  Our pool availability or number of swimmers per lane/group may change as we go through the season.  For this reason, we have set dues at this point only for the Fall season and only based on the financial picture for the Fall season.  We will revisit this again for each successive season as we go through the year and will adjust dues up or down accordingly as our situation changes.

TRAINING GROUPS: Due to COVID-19, swimmers will not be able to attend a different practice than what he/she is rostered for. Thank you for understanding.

Meet Fees

The Edina Swim Club will add all meet fees to each swimmer's invoice throughout the season. Meet fees will be billed on the first of the month. Meet fees are generally between $25 and $100 depending on the number of events a swimmer has.

For meets paid per splash, the ESC will add $.50 per splash per swimmer and $.50 per relay per swimmer along with an admin fee of $6.

For flat fee meets, the ESC will add $5 per swimmer for admin fees.

A travel meet fee will be added to help cover club travel expenses if overnight is required for coaches. Fees will be based on location of meet.

Any balance past due after the 20th of each month will be assessed a late fee of $20.  If an account is delinquent for more than 60 days, the swimmer will not be allowed to practice until the account is paid in full.

Service Fee There will be a $5 credit card processing fee added to monthly bills.

Late Pick Up Charge

Refunds

  • Swimmers who withdraw from the club within two weeks of the start of the season, will not be required to pay dues.
  • No dues/fees will be refunded after the first two weeks of practice, with the exception of injuries that cause the swimmer to be out for more than six weeks. In such situations, a doctor's medical note is required. Contact the Edina Swim Club office.
  • The $72 USA Swimming Athlete membership and the registration fee are both non-refundable.

 

Fundraisers: DUE TO COVID-19, this is TBD for 2020-2021
Fundraising is an important part of our club’s operations, as it helps us to maintain and to purchase needed equipment, as well as to ensure that our swimmers have the highest quality of coaching possible.  Each family (with the exception of families that only have a Gator 1, Age Group Prep or Sr. Prep swimmer) is expected to raise $150 during the course of the season through one of our fundraising opportunities, such as the Swim-A-Thon. Families who choose not to participate in the fundraiser will be billed $150 to their club account following completion of all fundraising activities for the season.

Volunteer Commitment - DUE TO COVID-19, this will be updated at a later date.

A part of joining the Edina Swim Club is committing time to volunteer at our hosted meets throughout the year.
