Team Practice Fee

By registering for a season, parents/guardians are committing their child to the entire short course or long course season and are obligated to pay monthly dues and any fees incurred during that season. Monthly dues and any fees are due by the 10th of the month. Any account past due will incur a $25 late fee per billing cycle, and the swimmer will not be allowed to attend meets or register for subsequent seasons until the account is paid in full.
If a swimmer withdraws from the team prior to the end of the season, the monthly financial obligation remains, and all current and future monthly dues will be due at the time of departure unless approved by the board. Extenuating circumstances (such as an extended injury) will be reviewed by coaches and the board on a case-by-case basis. If a swimmer would like to withdraw prior to the end of the registered season, please email the swimmer’s coach, the head coach, and the board for their review and consideration.

Additional Fees

USA Swimming Registration Annual Fee
Swimmer athletes are required to be registered with USA Swimming. Annual USA Swimming membership is required to swim in sanctioned meets, for insurance purposes, and it has many other benefits. This registration is submitted independently by members and is nonrefundable.
Meet Event Fees
Meet information is posted on the Events page of our website. Members are responsible for confirming attendance at a meet and for all fees associated with entries. The fees are usually $4 per event plus a $5 event surcharge (typically a swimmer will compete in 3-4 events per day). These fees will be billed to your account and included in your monthly invoice. Meet entries cannot be canceled once they are sent to the host team, and if your swimmer does not compete, you will still be responsible for these entry fees.
Home Meet Concession Stand Fee
During registration, each swimmer will be charged a $15 concession stand fee for each home meet. This allows the team to buy concession items that are sold at the home meet. Hosted meets are one of the team’s largest fundraisers.
Out-of-District Annual Fee
The Waunakee Wave is supported by the Waunakee Community School District. Waunakee residents pay an annual $150 fee applicable to the maintenance, usage, and support of the pool. The Waunakee Community School District  requires an annual $ 150 charge per family for out-of-district families swimming on the Wave to equalize the contributions of the community. This payment is made directly to the school district at the start of the fall/winter session. The fee is nonrefundable and is not prorated for those who join during the spring/summer session.
