Effective January 4, 2021

Swim team dues and registration fees cover team expenses such as pool time, coach’s salary, administration costs, team savings, kids team “swag” etc.

Multi-Swimmer Families: There is a 15% discount on 2nd/3rd etc. for all swim levels.

Monthly swim team dues are due on the 1st of every month. Fees cannot be prorated. All fees must be paid in full by the 15th of each month to avoid a $25 late fee.  Automatic payments can be set-up in the team portal (Team Unify). Checks are also accepted.

USA Swimming Memberships
Regardless of competitive level ALL swimmers must be a member of the National Organization called USA Swimming. It covers our insurance and is MANDATORY FOR EVERY SWIMMER. It is all required for competition.  All memberships are renewed right before the short course season in September/October. Types of membership is as follow:

  • Year-Round Membership: Endless opportunity to compete throughout the year. Will allow swimmers to qualify and attend championship, zone, sectional, and national level meets.
  • Flex Membership:  This membership is only for meets that are below the LSC Championship, zone, sectional, and national levels. Swimmers are only allowed to swim in 2 swim meets throughout the year.

Capital City Health Club Membership
A membership to Capital City Health Club is required to join the team. Please visit Capital City Health Club in person to sign up (1280 North Montana Ave) or schedule an appointment online at www.capcity.club/join. CCHC membership is separate from team fees.

Swim Meet Fees 
Entry fees (typically a set price per swimmer plus a few dollars for each event), lodging, and travel expenses are not paid by the team. HDST will try to get group rates at hotels to help with travel costs. 

Fundraising / Registration Fees
Instead of fundraising, the team will have a registration fee at the beginning of every season (short course and long course). The initial registration fee when first joining the team is $50, and then drops to $30 after the first season with the team. This is as seen as the fairest ways to assess the cost of running a year-round program to each family. Money will help provide coach to swimmer communication equipment, facility costs, salaries, special team events, etc.
