FEES, FUNDRAISING, & OTHER CHARGES FOR THE 2022 - 2023 SEASON

Becoming a member of Voltage Aquatics means fun, fitness, and teamwork for all.  It also means a financial obligation to pay your monthly dues and other charges in a timely manner.  The following outlines what you can expect to pay as a member of team VOLT.  At first glance, it may seem as if the swim team is expensive.  However, when taking into account the hours of coaching and pool time your swimmer receives for their monthly dues, the swim team offers a reasonable team experience designed to promote self- esteem, self-discipline, and good sportsmanship.


 

USA SWIMMING: Because Voltage Aquatics is a member of USA Swimming, all members are required to pay a yearly membership fee. This annual fee for 2022-23 is $78.00. This fee is reduced considerably for those swimmers who qualify for free or reduced hot lunch through the school system (letter from school district stating such is required as proof).  The USA Swimming membership provides secondary health and accident insurance in case of injury during swim team practice and during swim meets. For the first time in 2018-2019, USA Swimming is offering a limited registration for 12 and unders. This flex membership is only good for practice and 2 swim meets. If a swimmer turns 13 or wants to compete at more than 2 swim meets they must upgrade to a full membership. This membership is done at USASWIMMING.ORG. Once you register with Votage Aquatics you will have access to a link to register with USA Swimming. 

MONTHLY DUES: The monthly dues are based on which group  your child swims in. The monthly fees go towards pool space rental, coaches, and the daily expenses it takes to run a competitive swim programThe monthly dues are as follows:
