Q:  When should I register for the TITANS?

A:  There are a limited number of spots available in each practice group.  We encourage each family to register as soon as possible. If your group is full when you go to register, please contact us to get put on the waitlist.  

 

Q:  What are the dues structures?

A:  Each practice group has a unique monthly fee.

  • Challenge and Elite track swimmers are yearly contracted and billed 11 months of the year - September through July.  
  • Senior Challenge and Teen TITANS are billed 12 months of the year and with proper paperwork submitted 15 days in advance of the start of a new month, swimmers may swim on a monthly commitment basis. See Financial Policies for further information.

There is a 15% discount on the monthly group fees for the second swimmer, 20% for the third and all additional swimmers. Discounts apply to the swimmer’s paying the lesser amount each month. Jr. TITANS and Teen TITANS swimmers are not eligible for multiple swimmer discounts due to the flexibility of their programs.

 

Q: What is the Endowment Fund?

A: The Triangle Aquatic Center (“TAC”) Board of Directors is responsible for making sure that TAC is able to serve the year-round aquatic needs of the Triangle community for generations to come.   As a result, TAC has established a yearly, non-refundable, Endowment Fund (“Endowment”) to support the long-term mission and financial health and vitality of this nonprofit organization.  Establishing an endowment is a common practice among nonprofit organizations in order to create long-term financial sustainability.  Beginning September 1, 2018, a percentage of revenue from all TAC program fees, a Family Contribution from selected TAC TITANS swimming groups and community donations will be used to fund the Endowment. 

 

Q. Is there a Volunteer Requirement (Service Credit Policy)?

Yes! The TAC TITANS rely on member families to facilitate TITANS meets in order to provide a positive experience for swimmers and spectators. As the leading nonprofit aquatic facility in North Carolina, we strive to keep our pricing competitive. For us to effectively balance competitive pricing and keep travel costs at a minimum for TITANS families, we regularly host home swim meets in our world-class facility. As a result, we need sufficient coverage at swim meets and team events by our TITANS member families. For the 2020-2021 swim year, Elite families are required to earn 10 service credits and challenge families 7 service credits. Please read the service credit policy in detail during registration.
