Level 2

2020-21 FINANCIAL, VOLUNTEER and FUNDRAISING COMMITMENT

The Issaquah Swim Team operates on a defined annual budget which is approved by the general membership. Expenditures and income are budgeted once a year based upon an estimated number of swimmers and the expenses necessary to support that number of swimmers. 

Annual training fees are paid in nine installments from September through May but cover training expenses for the full swim season, except Steelheads which are payable in eleven installments. Resignation from the team during the season will result in the forfeiture of all prepaid training fees. 

Please refer to our Training Fee Payment Policy for more information.

VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT

The Issaquah Swim Team is dependent on the support of all its membership to assist the team in hosting meets and contributing to many other areas of the team. Each new family to the team is required to provide the team with 15 hours of volunteer service annually while veteran families are required to provide the team with 25-30 hours of volunteer service annually depending on training group. Any shortcomings in the volunteer time provided by any family will result in financial penalties. For a complete overview of IST's volunteer program please see the Volunteer Policy located under the Admin tab.

Each member of the Issaquah Swim Team must contribute a minimum of $175 for the annual Swim-a-Thon.  For multi-swimmer families, the required contribution is $175 for the first athlete plus $50 for each additional athlete up to $375. IST families are also required to purchase Brown Bear Car Wash tickets for $75. For more detailed information please refer to our Fundraising Policy.
