The SPA surcharge helps cover coaches travel and lodging costs.

 

Meet Fee

At the begiining of each season, short course and long course, a $75 meet fee will be assessed to your account.  This fee is charge whether your child attends meets or not. Short course is charged with annual regsitration and long course fee is charged with the April billing. If you child does not swim during one of these seasons you will not be charged the meet fee. 

 

Parent Volunteer Hours

Parents are expected to volunteer their time during the SPA hosted meets. Hosting swim meets is one of the major club fundraisers. These events have host responsibilities necessary to run the meets [timers, officials, hospitality, etc.]   Parent assistance is crucial to successfully hosting these events. Member involvement at meets also provides the opportunity to meet other swim team families, get to know SPA team members, and show active support for your child’s swimming efforts. Meets are not the only time volunteers are needed as there may be other opportunities to get involved through out the season.
