Payment Policies

  1. The initial $300 registration fee is non-refundable. Once your initial registration is approved (please allow 7 days for processing) you will be emailed instructions to create a password to access the website at www.pvbluewave.com.  

  2. All members must utilize auto pay by debit/credit card (Visa, Master Card or Discover) or by automatic transfer (ACH) directly from a checking account. 

  3. Members are responsible for updating credit / debit card information when your card expires or you change numbers.  It is the member’s responsibility to keep the contact information (email address, mailing address, and phone numbers) up to date.  Failure to do so will not relieve you of your monthly obligation.

  4. Meet Entry Fees will be billed on the 1st of the month following the meet entry deadline.  Once meet entries have been sent to the meet host, no refunds are available even if you do not swim the meet or events (approximately two weeks before the meet.)

  5. Payments will process on the 1st of the month for all unpaid team dues or meet entry fees.  There will be an additional 2.95% fee for debit / credit card users and a $1.25 fee added for ACH payments. 

  6. A $25 late fee is billed on all balances carried after the 7th of the month.  This includes failed credit card payments. Please check your account prior to the 7th to ensure your payment has processed. If your payment fails, you will need to update your payment method and make an on-demand payment prior to the 7th to avoid the late fee. Failure to do so will prohibit you from entering meets until the payment account is made current.

  7. If your account becomes 30 days past due, your privileges are subject to immediate suspension and/or termination and may result in athletes being removed from practice.   If your account remains past due, the balance may be turned over to a third party collection agency, and you will be fully responsible for any service/collection fees assessed in the process of collecting any unpaid balance.

  8. BW is a yearlong program with year-round commitments.  Team dues represent a large part of the operating expense of our swim team. Team dues are structured as annual fees.  You will remain responsible for all fees even if you leave the team before the end of the season.  Team dues are non-refundable unless the program is terminated by the team.

  9. You can access your account anytime by logging in on our website at www.pvbluewave.com  and selecting “my account” to view your account and verify all charges. Please contact the team administrator if you have any questions regarding your account.
