This page contains information on Dallas Mustang Team Policies including termination rules, volunteer commitments, and other important policies.  For information on How to Join the team and Tryout dates, please click HERE


In the event that a swimmer wishes to end his or her relationship with the Dallas Mustangs, it is the responsibility of the swimmer to notify both the Registrar (Lia Oberstar-Brown - [email protected]) and the Billing Coordinator (Lisa Steed - Li[email protected]) IN WRITING before charges will be stopped.

This notice must be received by the 15th of the month prior to charges cancelling. For example, if you wish to leave the team in January, you must render notification by December 15th. Merely telling your coach that you wish to leave the team will not stop your charges. It is also the swimmer's responsibility to pay in full any outstanding charges before leaving the team. If outstanding charges are not paid within 30 days, a fine of $100 will be assessed.

If you wish to return to the Dallas Mustangs later in the same season, you must pay a $100 reinstatement fee before being allowed to begin practicing with the team.

USA Swimming Registration Fees and Annual Registration Fees are non-refundable.

PAUSING MEMBERSHIPS: If you wish to pause your Dallas Mustangs membership, you will need to follow the termination notification process outlined above. When you are ready to rejoin in the same season, a $100 reinstatement fee will be assessed. In the event of a Medical Leave of Absence, the reinstatement fee will not be due. Proof of medical leave of absence may be required in this case. 



Dallas Mustangs Minimum Volunteering Requirements
Applies to meets hosted by the Dallas Mustangs only

Minimum-volunteering requirement

  • If your swimmer participates in the DM meet, volunteer two shifts
  • Even if your swimmer does not participate in any DM hosted meet, the requirement is a minimum of 2 shifts at DM meets.
  • If you do not sign up to volunteer, your credit card will be charged $200 and you may be assigned a position at the next meet.

2 Shifts Per Meet:

The requirement is 2 shifts per meet per family, not a requirement per swimmer.

  • If you have multiple swimmers participating in a Mustang hosted meet, the requirement is still 2 shifts (not 2 shifts per swimmer).
