BAC at FDU Fees
*Please note that the invoice due date is the 15th of each month.
You will be billed for four categories of fees throughout the year:
1.  Membership Fees:  The membership fees are listed below with a schedule of when they are billed.  Membership fees are never refunded.  In July, you will be asked to “re-register” for the following year and give a $400 non-refundable initial payment per swimmer to hold his/her spot.  Failure to re-register may mean that your swimmer loses his/her spot on the team and/or is asked to try out again.  This BAC Team memberships covers September through the end of July.
 
2.  USA Swimming Registration:  EVERY swimmer must be USA Swimming registered.  USA swimming registration provides insurance for us and for you.  If your child is injured going to or from a swim meet or swim practice, or at a swim meet or practice, ask the coach to fill out a USA Swimming Accident report.  USA swimming will contact you and tell you how you can use the insurance as a secondary insurance to cover deductibles or anything else not covered by your primary insurance, up to a limit.  The USA Swimming registration fee will be $95 per swimmer for the 2022-2023 season.  Each parent will receive a direct link to the NEW USA-SWIMMING ON-LINE MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION (OMR) site. You will register each of your swimmers and will be asked for payment at the end.  This link will be for all swimmers of BAC, new and renewals.  [Scholarship swimmers should e-mail Head Coach Tristan Formon to set up a time to register utilizing a secure on-site (BAC) computer and payment method.
 
3.  Meet Fees:  Each swimmer is charged for the meets and events in which he/she participates, including his/her portion of a relay.  The fees for most meets can be found in the meet information posted with the event.  Once a swimmer has signed up for a meet, the signup deadline has passed, the family will be charged.  If the coaches have not yet sent in their entries, it may be possible to email the coach and ask for the swimmer to be removed from the event.  However, entries are often sent in MONTHS ahead of a meet and there is no guarantee that the swimmer can be removed.  Changing your commitment on Team Unify is not sufficient to remove your swimmer from a meet.  Rather, you must email the coach AND receive an affirmative response.  In general, if you sign up, you are obligated to pay.  Fees are not refunded due to illness or injury. In most cases, BAC has already paid the hosting club and will not be able to get a refund.
 
4.  Event Participation:  Sign ups and payment for Age Group Activities (e.g. pizza parties, bowling parties), the Buffalo Bus, Wahoo Weekend, the Annual Picnic, etc. are done through our registration system and must be paid by credit card.  This information will be specified for each event.
 
 
Important Notes:
1.  You will be billed on the first of the month.  If you have not paid by midnight on the 15th of the month, starting with the September bill, you will be charged a monthly late fee of $25.  This late fee is generated automatically by the billing system; therefore, if you are mailing or dropping off a check, the check must be received by BAC BILLING by the 15th.
 
2.  You have the option of using credit cards or automatic withdrawal from your checking account.  You can set this up in Team Unify so that it happens automatically on the first of the month or you can pay on a time by time basis by entering your data each time.  NO ONE at BAC or at Team Unify has access to your credit card information.  Some registrations or events (not membership or meet fees) may require a credit card.  You may enter your credit card just to pay for that event or you can choose to save it in the system and pay your bill automatically each month.

BAC Athlete Scholarships  are available. Needs based, open to current and new BAC swim team members of all ages and levels. More information available HERE
 
 
 
 
If your child leaves the club or changes groups after registering:  You are responsible for all fees.
If your swimmer transfers to another club:  You must meet all financial obligations before you will be released from BAC.  At that point your swimmer will be able to swim for the other club.
 
If your swimmer elects to move down a practice group during the season:  You are responsible for all fees in your original practice group.
 
If your swimmer is provided the opportunity to move up a practice group during the season: You will have the option to accept that opportunity.  That transition between groups would be with the additional acceptance of the associated prorated increased program fees for the higher level group.
