VERY IMPORTANT:
We are a competitive Swim Team.  It should be noted that coaches are training swimmers for championship meets in the following months:

  • December
  • March
  • July

Coaches would love to see all swimmers available for the championship meets during these months.  Often swimmers who do not meet qualifying time standards are invited to participate in relays.  SRST will send out relay notifications close to the championship meet and all families should review these invitations and respond quickly at that time.  Going on vacation with 45 days of a big swim meet is a very bad idea because it will impact the conditioning and performance of the athlete.  While each swimmer participates in this sport individually, we are a TEAM and ask that families plan accordingly.

YELLOW HIGHLIGHTED MEETS ARE SRST HOSTED MEETS WHERE ALL PARENTS ARE REQUIRED TO VOLUNTEER; PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW.

Meet Notes:


VOLUNTEERING APPLIES TO ALL SWIMMERS EVEN IF NOT PARTICIPATING IN THE MEET AND EVEN IF DOING HIGH SCHOOL SWIM; NO EXCEPTIONS.

  1. We may add additional meets. 
  2. Meets cost extra.  See fees info.
  3. Members are 100% responsible for signing up by SRST posted deadlines.  Coaches do not enter swimmers into meets unless asked.  You should log in/out after entering a meet to ensure you have signed up properly.
  4. Members are 100% responsible for paying all fees.  This means members must read the meet info.  If you sign up for a meet and you cannot attend (for any reason) you must still pay.  So it really does "pay" to read the meet info.
  5. Members should consult with their direct coach (not Coach Ben) to see which meets are appropriate and which events are appropriate and recommended.
  6. All members are responsible for volunteering 2 shifts (per family) per SRST hosted meet.  These shifts are required even if you are not participating in the competition.  Members not volunteering must pay the fee outlined in the fee section.  
  7. Some meets require attending teams to help with volunteer timing.  This is required.  Fees will be applied and reimbursement will be credited (see info in fees section).

-Red SRST t-shirt

3)  ALL APPAREL IS PAID BY THE FAMILIES (SHIRTS, CAPS, ETC.).
4)  ALL TRAVEL AND ASSOCIATED FEES ARE PAID BY THE FAMILIES.

 

 


 

SRST does not charge any other "fundraising" fees.

Other Fees and Notes:

  1. Month-to-month membership.  Members must email Ben withing 48 hours of monthly invoicing to cancel membership.  If members do not email Ben within this timeframe there will be a $30 fee to cover bookkeeping services.
  2. HS Swimming and time off:  SRST charges a reduced rate (see fees above) for up to 3 months max for swimmers doing other sports such as HS swim.  This rate may or may not be a discount depending on what group you swim in.  This fee is charged regardless of whether swimmers are training with the team.  We are a year round team with set monthly expenses.  Swimmers are able to participate in SRST practices and swim meets during their HS season and we encourage it.  Swimmers paying a reduced rate can swim 3 SRST workouts per week and participate in meets.
  3. Swim meets are extra.  SRST charges a $15 surcharge for swim meets (per swimmer).
  4. SRST does not charge for relays.  Please note that our system (Team Unify) will show relays on the invoice even though you are not charged for relays.
  5. SRST charges families an extra $15 per hosted swim meet (refer to the Join Team page to see how many meets we are hosting).  This charge is to cover the purchase of food for officials and coaches as well as copies, awards and other supplies to run the meet.
  6. Transfer swimmers must pay a $5 transfer fee.
  7. Apparel is extra.
  8. Equipment is extra
  9. Participation at our hosted meets is required.  There is a $100 charge for families not showing up for their volunteer shift.  This fee will allow SRST to hire workers to cover shifts.  Each family is responsible for 2 x shifts per hosted meet.
  10. We have a mid-year fee (SRST Annual Family Admin, in March) of $200; this is a per Account charge (not per swimmer).  This fee helps us during the time of year when expenses are high and income is low.
  11. Credit card usage: .30 per transaction fee/2.95% of total transaction.
  12. NEW - VOLUNTEER TIMER CHARGE: At some meets the host team will require the visiting team to provide timers.  When this happens a timer list will be created by Coach Ben.  All families are required to time and families who do not time will be charged an additional $50 non-participation fee.  Here are some notes regarding this policy:
    A)  If your swimmer is not swimming in the session where timing is required you are off the hook to time.  In other words, we won't make families drive all the way to Federal Way just to time on a day you are not swimming.  
    B)  Coach Ben will divide the total number of hours required for timing by the number of families in the session and post a first-come-first-serve list for volunteer timers.  This list will be via our Team Unify system and all sign-ups will be in real time, so Coach Ben is completely taken out of the equation...truly a first-come-first-serve set-up.
    C)  If you are willing to time extra shifts (covering for those who do not time) please indicate this in the notes section in your swimmers online meet entries.  In the case of you being selected by Coach Ben to cover an extra shift, Ben will communicate with you via email to make sure you are still good to go for the extra work.  If everything lines up and you do the extra shift you will get a $15 credit on your account.
    D)  Coach Ben will make every effort to disclose in advance if timers will be required, but in the event this info is not made available to Coach Ben (or if Coach Ben forgets to inform the team) all members are still on the hook to help out or pay the price on not volunteering.
    E)  This non-volunteer charge for meets we attend is on top of all other fees.
    F)  Note: It's also important to know that no matter what shift you sign up for it's possible (and likely) that the host team will require ALL VOLUNTEER TIMERS to show up for the initial pre-race timer meeting (due to MAAPP training and to ensure quality timing throughout the competition).

MEMBERSHIP FAQS

  1. Do we have to be on the team all year?
    Yes.  We are a year-round program but you pay month-to-month.  We do allow members to leave the team for 3 months to do other activities but they must pay 50% rate while they are gone.  Families not paying will not be guaranteed their spot back on the team if they wish to return.  Families leaving and not paying the 50% rate will need to pay the total of all fees owed when they return (50% monthly rate x 1/2 or 3 months....anything longer than 3 months will incur full rate for additional months).
  2. If we leave, is our spot secure for when we return?
    No. 


    Families can leave for up to 3 months but must pay the HS rate.  Often high school swimmers do this during their HS season.  
  3. Do we have to commit to going to every practice?
    No.  There is no attendance policy, but the more you come the better you get.  Also, swimmers who keep up with their training will have less injury.  We will not prorate or refund for practices that you miss.
  4. Are swim meets required?
    Yes.  Swimmers should ideally go to one meet per month and our minimum requirement is to attend 3 meets per season (3 meets between Sept. and end of March and 3 meets between April and end of July).
  5. Do you accept cash?
    Yes.  The only coach you are allowed to give cash to is Coach Ben.  Coach Ben does not keep a receipt book, so please double check your account 7 days after giving payment to Ben to ensure your payment was recorded.
  6. Are Silver and Gold swimmers allowed to compete?
    Yes.  All swimmers on SRST are full USA Swim Members and allowed to compete.  In fact, we encourage it!
  7. Do coaches sign the swimmers up for the swim meets?
    No.  All families are in 100% control of their own meet entries.  If you want advice from your coach as to what events might be most appropriate, please ask your direct coach.  The learning curve for swim meets is pretty big.  We have a wealth of info related to swim meets that you should begin to familiarize yourself with ASAP.  Go to Team Info/Swim Meet Info: DIRECT LINK CLICK HERE.
  8. Is there a minimum skill requirement to join the team?
    Yes.  Swimmers must be able to swim 2 lengths in a 25 yard pool (no stopping allowed) with both Freestyle and Backstroke.  For Freestyle, the swimmer must have good side breathing technique.  For both Freestyle and Backstroke, the swimmer must have a good horizontal body position (in other words, the legs cannot be sinking).
  9. Are you supportive of high school swimming?
    Yes.  We encourage swimmers to participate on their high school swim team.  Our preferred choice is to have the swimmers come in 3 times or more per week to swim with their SRST coach during the high school swim season and also participate in SRST meets.
