All summer registrations will occur online with a one time $195 fee for unlimited swimming throughout the season and includes your USA Registration fee.  Registration fee includes a team t-shirt, swim cap, SVSL meet fees along with a very active practice schedule plus both summer league and 2 (non championship) USA Swimming Long Course swim meet options. This registers your swimmer with USA Swimming thru 12/31/2020.  Additional individual fees will apply for USA Long Course Meet Fees that will be billed to each participating swimmers account invoiced on the 1st of the month following the meet and are non refundable once meet registration is completed.   Please note all accounts must be paid in full before your swimmer can start practices.
