3. Payments received after the 15th will be considered late and will be charged a $10 late fee.
 

4. If you are late ordering a team suit (within 30 days of joining the team), you will not be allowed to swim until the account is made current.

 

5. For families with outstanding balances of over 60 days, their swimmers will not be allowed to swim until the account is made current. 

 

6. Failure to receive a bill is not an excuse for non-payment. Families must contact the bookkeeper at [email protected] if they are currently not receiving a bill.
 

7. There will be a $25 charge for checks returned to Metroplex Aquatics for insufficient funds.
 

8. Upon leaving the team, you must notify Brent at [email protected] and our bookkeeper at [email protected] before the 25th of the month you are quitting the team. Failure to notify both before then will result in your account incurring additional monthly dues while your swimmer is not participating in practice. Next month dues will be added to your account at midnight the last day of the next month.  Your obligation for payment of dues is only terminated by this timely notification. Your escrow will be returned upon request; otherwise, 60 days after termination any remaining escrow money will be considered a tax-deductible donation to Metroplex Aquatics. Any outstanding balances are owed to Metroplex Aquatics and must be paid in a timely manner or they will be sent to a collection agency.  ACH auto debit is the families responsibility to turn on and to turn off due to the sensitivity of the information required.
 

9. If your swimmer gets injured, they may request a medical leave of absence. You must notify Brent at [email protected] and our bookkeeper at [email protected] You must submit a doctor's note stating the purpose and length of leave required. During this time, you will not be charged for dues.

If greater than 6 months, the family terminates membership with the team and may rejoin, paying the initial registration fees. If the group the swimmer is assigned to is full, the swimmer will be placed at the bottom of the waiting list.
