Swim Meet Entry Fees:  Meets are encouraged, but optional. Each meet host will set its own fees, but they genearlly range from about $30 to $70 per swimmer depending on how many race events are entered. LCAT pays all fees on behalf of the swimmers, and then bills family accounts shortly following the meet. Once a swimmer is signed up for a meet, the family is committed to paying for the entry fees.
Home Meet Fees:
  • LCAT hosts about 2-3 meets per year, bringing in swimmers from all over the NM, El Paso, and Chihuahua areas. We provide food and drinks to meet workers. Each family is billed $15 per home meet to help defray those hospitality costs.
  • Family volunteers are essential to making meets run successfully. All families are required to work two shifts at every LCAT-hosted meet. Shifts can be worked by anyone 13 & over. Unfulfilled shifts will result in a $50 charge to the famliy account.
