There will be Two ways to sign up for your group.

  1. You can sign up and pay for the Monthly Advanced Competitive Plan.  This plan has a commitment of 8 months (October 1 - May 31). The monthly fee will be $105 per month for the advanced class and $95 for the beginning class. This fee entitles your swimmer to participate in all dive clinics for their class and swim meets during those time periods. There will be an initial registration fee of $125 which includes their annual USA / OSI registration and team registration.  That fee is in addition to the monthly fee. 

  2. You can sign up and pay for the Dive Clinic only Plan.  If you want to do swim meets you will have to pay for each meet fee as you sign up for it.  For this plan you will pay for the $125 registration fee which includes their annual USA / OSI registration. You will then be on auto pay for the dive clinics only for  $40 per month for the beginning group, and $50 per month for the advanced group. This monthly fee runs for 8 months from October through May.

 

 

Meet Fees will apply to all swimmers who signed up for Dive Clinic Only. The meet fee will also apply to any additional meets that are not included in the montly dues for the Advanced and Beginning Competitive groups. These meets will require qualifying time to enter such as the State Championship Meets.

  • Swim Meet Fees: $40 plus $8 per individual event and $4 per relay event. Relays are up to the discretion of the coach.  We will do them when we have the appropriate number of qualifying swimmers.

If you start in the middle of the session you will start being charged monthly starting with the month that you register. If you are starting at the beginning of the session you may register in September, but your monthly dues will not be charged until October 1st. At time of registration you will only be charged the initial registration fees of $125 plus card processing fees.

 

For credit card transactions you will be charged credit card processing fees of $0.30 plus 2.99 percent of the amount processed.

(Example: for the $105 monthly fee the processing fee that will be added is $3.44 . So the monthly total would be $108.44)

For (ACH Bank Account Charge) you will be charged a flat fee of $1.75 per transaction.

 

You may put your account on hold during the 8 month commitment. There will be a $50 hold fee charged to your payment method on file at the beginning of the hold.  What this means is that you are unable to do any swim meets or dive clinics during the time that your account is on hold. You must be on hold for a full month from the first of the month to the last day of the month in order to not be charged the monthly fee.
