If you withdraw before the end of the 2nd week of practice (September 20, 2022):
NDAC will give a refund minus $50 service charge. 

After the 2nd full week of practice:
If you are on the NDAC Payment Plan, no refunds will be given on payments already made. Future payments beyond the date of withdrawal will be waived.

If you paid in full at the time of Registration, fees to be refunded will be based on the date of withdrawal and calculated as if you were on the Payment Plan.

Refunds will be issued within 2 weeks of receiving your cancellation request. Remember, your cancellation request must be in writing.

Please note that orders for NDAC Merchandise or Swim Caps are non-refundable. All outstanding fees and charges on your account will be deducted from any refunds or credits you are due.


NDAC's Parent Board will review requests for Special Circumstance Refunds on a case-by-case basis. Families must provide documentation to support a Special Circumstance Refund. These requests must be made in writing, either emailed to [email protected] or on paper and given directly to the Head Coach, the Board President or Treasurer. Generally any Special Circumstance Refunds will be issued as an account credit towards the following NDAC Season.


The credit or debit card that you have on file will be automatically charged on the 1st of each month for any payment plan installment or meet entry fees that are due.  As long as you maintain a valid credit or debit card on file, your payments will never be late.

You will not be able to register for swim meets unless you have a valid credit or debit card on file.

You will receive an email if your credit or debit card is denied when automatic payments on the 1st of the month are processed. You have until the 15th of the month to resolve it. Accounts must be current by the 15th of the month or you will be charged a $5 late fee.

If your account is delinquent/unpaid a 2nd time during the season, a late fee of $25 will be charged. If your account is unpaid a 3rd time during the season, the late fee is $50, for the 4th time the fee is $75 (and so on).

Please maintain a valid credit or debit card on file to avoid paying late fees.


NDAC recognizes that families are incredibly busy and we try to keep mandatory participation requirements for our fundraising efforts to a minimum.

Please keep in mind that our fundraisers are what allow us to offer the lowest swimming fees possible. Successful fundraisers benefit everyone. It is important that all NDAC families contribute to these efforts.

Our two main fundraisers that require mandatory participation are:

    NDAC's own Invitational is held every year, usually the first weekend in January (please plan accordingly).

    Winterfestival is both Saturday and Sunday, 2 sessions each day (4 sessions total).
    We cannot host a successful meet without ALL NDAC parents doing their part.
    Families are required to volunteer for a minimum of 2 sessions during the course of the swim meet.
    Those who do not volunteer will be charged $100 for each session not worked.

    Held every other year- likely to be held in fall of 2022.  Swim-a-Thon is a fun, team-wide, one-night fundraising event. NDAC Swimmers collect pledges and donations for the laps they swim. Suggested individual and team pledge goals will be communicated. Lap goals for swimmers will be set for each Group.

In addition to Winter Festival, NDAC also hosts a few Invitational and Dual Meets at Bard each SC Season. These meets are one session long. Our swim meets are run completely by parent volunteers. We ask that each family provide one worker for each NDAC-hosted meet. The jobs will be available as part of the meet information on the Meets page. There are many ways in which you can help. We look forward to everyone participating in the NDAC family!
