General Fondy Swim Club Financial Agreement

I, the parent or legal guardian (hereafter referred to as the Parent) of the swimmer seeking registration (hereafter referred to as the Swimmer), on behalf of the Swimmer and myself, agree to the following financial conditions of FSC membership.

  • I accept that this financial agreement will be renewed for each of the quarterly swim sessions.
  • I understand all FSC fees and invoices will be posted electronically to my FSC member account and can be viewed by the 25th of each month.
  • I understand that I am responsible for setting up an appropriate payment method and keeping my account information accurate and up to date. I understand that invoices are payable via ACH (Automated Check Handling), Credit Card, Check, or Money Order.
  • I understand that by using an electronic payment method I will be billed for my session fees, meet fees, and any other charges accrued on the 1st day of each month.
  • I understand that if I pay by Credit Card I will be responsible for the transaction fee of 2.95% + $.30 per transaction.
  • I understand that payments made by Check or Money Order are due by the 10th of each month.
  • Checks can be submitted to the payment box in the lobby at the Aquatic Center or mailed to the following address: P.O. Box 731, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin 54936-0731. 

Session Dues / Monthly Dues

  • I understand that each session has it's own set of dues that are determined by the number of weeks in the session, the pool location, and level of swimming, as set by the Parent Board.
  • I understand when I sign up for a quarterly session I am responsible for the fees for the entire session, regardless of payment method. 
  • I understand that once a session begins no refunds will be given. Partial credit for a session may be given at the discression of the Parent Board for illness or injury that results in the swimmer missing more than half of the session accompanied by a physician's note.
  • I understand the session dues may be paid in full or as a monthly payment as set forth on the released fee schedule.  The option of monthly payments may only be used so long as there is a valid electronic payment method attached to my account.
  • I understand that if I chose to remove the method of electronic payment my account must be brought current and the balance of my session fees paid in full before the card will be removed from my account.
  • I understand that due to the Covid-19 Pandemic the team could potentially practice at an alternative facility or have an altered practice schedule and that the Dues will be adjusted accordingly by the Board of Directors based on the current circumstances.

Meet Entry Fees

  • I will pay all Meet Entry Fees charged to my FSC account
  • I understand that meet surcharges and individual event fees and relay fees are set by the LSC (Local Swimming Committee) and change according to the level of meet. It is my responsibility to understand the fees associated with each meet prior to entering my swimmer in the meet.

Home Meet Work Requirement

  • I understand that our home meets are part of our fund-raising activities and I that it is a vital part of the operation of our swim club. I understand that by joining FSC, my family is obligated to work at each home meet.  A 1-day meet will require work during 1 session.  A 2-day meet will require work at 2 sessions.  A 3-day meet will require work at 3 sessions.
  • Meet positions are posted in advance and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. I understand it is my responsibility to keep myself informed regarding job posting and hours.
  • I will find my own replacement for any of the required hours I am unable to work. 
  • I understand that if I fail to work my shifts or find someone to work the shifts on my behalf that I will be charged $50 per shift.

Delinquent Account
