USA Swimming Registration Fee

As the National Governing Body for the sport of Swimming, USA Swimming is responsible for setting the rules and regulations governing competitive swimming.  In addition, USA Swimming is responsible for providing insurance.   All swimmers participating in a local swim club –whether they compete or not– must pay an annual fee set by USA Swimming.  Currently the annual fee is $71.  This fee typically increases a few dollars every other year.  All swim accounts will be billed this amount around November in anticipation of the new swim season.  If you are not planning on swimming the following year, make sure to speak with your coach so they know not to issue your child a USA card in advance. The Laramie Swim Club has no control over these regulations or fees.  If a swimmer is found not to hold a current USA card through an audit, the club will be fined.

Laramie Swim Club Fees

Fees for Swim Groups:

White/Red Groups – $60/month

Blue Junior/Blue Senior Groups – $70/month

As a member of the LSC, you will be charged a monthly fee if your child attends one practice or more in any particular month.  We believe our fees are reasonable, and much lower than clubs in other parts of Wyoming  or Colorado, therefore, we are unable to prorate monthly fees.  We understand there can be scheduling conflicts, e.g., illness, traveling, etc., the LSC bills retroactively after the coaches have taken attendance for the month.  This means that if your child swims during the month of September, you will be billed the appropriate fee on October 1st. We will not charge you if your child takes a month or more off from practice.

Paying Your Bill

We strongly encourage all parents to pay their bill online.  You can pay with a debit or a credit card online via our website on Team Unify (My Account --> set up Auto Pay).  You can save your payment information so that your account is paid on a monthly basis automatically OR you can choose to pay online after receiving your monthly invoice.  You can also pay via check by depositing your payment into lock box at one of the pools or by mailing it to the LSC PO Box 949, Laramie, WY 82073.  Bills are due upon receipt. 

If you are having trouble paying your bill in full, please contact your incoming treasurer to discuss a payment plan.

LSC Scholarship Program

Through the generosity of some wonderful Laramie Swim Club Alumni, we are fortunate to have a scholarship program. The program's intent is to make swimming available and affordable to everyone in the community. Scholarships can be granted for both the Swim America lesson program and participation in the competitive portion of the Laramie Swim Club.  Amounts are based upon family income levels and can cover up to 90% of the monthly dues for lessons, club-level swimming, USA Registration Fees or meet fees. Scholarship funds cannot be used for apparel.

People are encouraged to apply for the scholarship funds using the Scholarship Application.   Once completed, please turn the application into the Laramie Swim Club Board via mail, utilizing the swim club dropbox located at the high school pool or turning the form in directly to any board member or the lesson coordinator.  Our mailing address is:
