Annual Family Assessment Fee

The Family Assessment Fee is an annual one-time fee of $200.00 charged to each Gamecock Aquatics family. The annual fees help fund the operating budget of Gamecock Aquatics which include expenses such as: equipment purchases and maintenance, pool rental, coaches meet expenses, funds to send coaches and athletes to clinics, meet official registrations, and other general operating and facility expenses. This annual budget exceeds $42,000.00; therefore, Family Assessments are essential for the operation of our organization.

Swim Meet Fees

Swim Meets require specific fees to be entered and to participate. For the host team this provides a source of revenue to cover the costs of the event and support the team. These fees are NOT included in the coaching or registration fees. These fees are incurred prior to every swim meet and our team website calculates and applies the amounts for each swimmer to the member’s account.

 

Gamecock Aquatics Hosted Meets

Gamecock Aquatics will host 3-4 meets per year which will serve as an opportunity for our swim club to generate revenue while allowing our families to stay home without having to experience the associated costs with travel. These home competitions are complex, incur an associated expense to conduct, and require many knowledgeable people to run such an event. For these Gamecock Aquatics hosted events, our families will be expected to volunteer to help operate and make these home meets successful. In lieu of volunteering, families will be charged a $50/meet fee per family).
