Explanation of Swim Meet Fees

 

What charges are included in "meet fees”?

 

Individual event fees - These fees vary depending on the level of the meet. Most common for local, in season, meets is $6.00 per event. These fees are paid to the host team by BBST in one check before the meet. BBST then invoices individual members' accounts for the charges after the meet.

 

Relay event fees - Each swimmer in a relay is charged 1/4 of the team relay fee. A relay event fee varies depending on the level of the meet. Most in season, local meets will cost around $3.50 per swimmer. These fees are paid to the host team by BBST in one check before the meet. BBST then invoices individual members' accounts for the charges.

 

PNS Meet Surcharge - This is a fee charged ONCE to all swimmers in a meet. It helps the host team cover meet overhead and is usually set at $20.00 per swimmer. For Championship meets, or meets in Federal Way the meet overheads are much higher, in which case the Meet Surcharge will be higher. These fees are paid to the host team by BBST in one check before the meet. BBST then invoices individual members' accounts for the charges after the meet.

 

 

Total meet fees invoiced to a swimmer are then:
Individual event fees + relay fees + PNS Meet surcharge

 

Once we send BBST's entries in to a host team, swimmers who have committed to the meet are obligated to pay the meet fees that correspond to their meet entries. Once payment has gone out to the host team, meet fees are NON-refundable.
