The  Junior 1 group is for swimmers ages 13-14 who are TAGS qualifiers or have 13/14 “A” times in multiple strokes. The purpose of this group is to teach an advanced knowledge of the sport, to help swimmers understand their own swimming, and appreciate the process as they move forward in their swimming careers. Goals for the Junior 1 group consist of becoming a TAGS finalist and achieving Sectionals cuts.
Monthly Fees: Austin Swim Club’s yearly registration runs from September 1 through August 31. Austin Swim Club training fees are billed monthly. The amount of the monthly fees that an athlete will be charged is based on the training group that the athlete is placed into by the Austin Swim Club coaching staff. If a swimmer moves to a different practice group, they will begin paying the new group monthly rate from first day of the first full month that the athlete moves into the new group through the remainder of the swim year. For athletes that are current members of Austin Swim Club or athletes that join Austin Swim Club prior to September 1, the first monthly payment is due at the beginning of the swim year on September 1. If the athlete joins Austin Swim Club after September 1 the first monthly payment is due on the date that the athlete joins Austin Swim Club. Athletes must pay for the entire month of the month that they join Austin Swim Club, without regard to the number of days in the initial month that the athlete trains with Austin Swim Club. Monthly Rates will not be prorated for any reason. All regular monthly payments are due on the first of the month and will be charged to the athlete’s credit card.
