Additional Pricing Information:

  • Discounts for families with multiple children will be applied at check out.  In past years, the normal discount was done over multiple payments or at once if you paid in full. This time the multi child discount will only be applied to the first payment, which is why it is a larger discount. 
  • Administrative Fee: All families will be responsible for a yearly non-refundable Administrative Family Fee of $150. This fee goes towards our pool fees, any equipment necessary for the team and insurance requirements. This fee also includes what used to be a seperate fundraising fee. 
  • USA Swimming: If your child is choosing to participate in USA Swimming, it will be an $80 fee to register. 
  • Adding on Diving: If your child is interested in both swimming and diving, you would pay the full price for swimming. For the pricing of diving, you would pay a one-time fee of $100 in addition to your swimming fees for each diver. This is done to offset the price of both swimming coaches and a separate diving coach.
