TAC TITANS FINANCIAL POLICIES 2015-2016

1) After the initial 14 days of the swimmer’s first team practice, swimmers in each of the Challenge and Elite tracks are considered to be obligated for the entire annual fee, regardless of the length of time which the swimmer remains in the program. Should a swimmer cease practicing with a Challenge or Elite group for any reason, the lesser of a two months dues cancelation fee or the remainder of the swim-year’s dues will be assessed to the family’s account. A swimmer may not swim through the buyout period. If a swimmer is moved into Jr. TITANS or Teen TITANS after the initial 14 days of the swimmer’s first practice, they will remain obligated to their new group rate for the entire contract period. Should a swimmer cease practicing for any reason, the lesser of a two months dues cancelation fee will be assessed.

2) Families with multiple athletes in the Challenge and Elite tracks will receive a discount on the additional swimmer’s fees. There is a 15% discount on the monthly group fees for the second swimmer, 20% for the third, 25% for the fourth 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 the program.

3) Families with Teen TITANS swimmers may opt to swim on a month-to-month basis. The Suspend/Reactivate Form must be completed and submitted BEFORE the 15th of the month PRECEEDING the month you wish to suspend or reactivate your Teen TITANS swimmer. Account balances must be paid in full to suspend swimmers. The form is located under the "All About TITANS" tab on the website.                     

4) Families with Jr. TITANS swimmers may opt to swim on a quarterly contract basis. The quarterly contracts are; Fall (September – November), Winter (December – February), Spring (March – May), and Summer (June – August). The Suspend/Reactivate Form must be completed and submitted BEFORE the 15th of the month PRECEEDING the first day of the new quarterly contract period. Account balances must be paid in full to suspend swimmers. The form is located under the "All About TITANS" tab on the website.                    

5) Once a swimmer has committed online to any trip, meet, or event; and the online commitment withdrawal/sign-up date has passed, the swimmer is financially responsible and will be billed.

6) When a swimmer is absent or unable to participate in practice for any reason, it is not possible to refund fees or reschedule.

7) When practice is cancelled due to weather, national holiday, facility shut down, or TITANS home meets, it is not possible to refund fees or reschedule a practice.

8) Meet entry fees will be billed after the meet has occurred and will be included in a subsequent invoice. Once a swimmer has committed online for a meet; and the online commitment withdrawal/sign-up date has passed, the swimmer is financially responsible and will be billed.

9) Other costs that are not included in monthly dues may include, but are not limited to: monthly dry land fees, meet entry fees, additional training opportunities, social events, training trips, travel meets and apparel purchases.

10) Members whose check payments are returned as insufficient will be charged a $50 return fee per violation. Members whose online credit card payments failed to process will be charged a $20 fee per violation. Returned fees are also subject to the late payment fee policies.

11) Late or delinquent fees/payments of any kind may result in a loss of swimmer practice time or meet participation until all payments are reconciled. Team Unify will automatically charge a “late payment” fee of $25 after the 20th of each month.

  • 20 days late: $25 late fee posted on account
  • 50 days late: $25 additional late fee posted on account and swimmer will not be allowed to practice or compete in swim meets until account is paid in full.

12) Dues Reduction work completed by TITANS families may be applied to both current and future year’s dues, however; if a family leaves the TITANS swimming program, any unused funds are forfeited and will remain in the TITANS’ general operating fund.

13) As a non-profit, TITANS need your volunteer support at swim meets we host. Home swim meets allow for reduced program costs and less travel expenses for our families. The TAC TITANS expects each member family to support the team through volunteering at TITANS hosted meets and/or other team events.  Tracking of volunteer time is done via Service Credits.  Each family is expected to earn a total of ten (10) Service Credits per season (September - July). The TITANS do not currently have a monetary fine for not volunteering, but the TITANS reserve the right to re-assess this policy if obtaining volunteers becomes difficult.
