3. All swimmers MUST pay the YMCA fees associated with joining the Aquajets. Registration forms and payment options are available for Annual Memberships to fit your individual needs. Seasonal memberships must be paid in full.
4. All swimmers MUST have a USA card. This applies to Annual and Seasonal Memberships. This membership fee is included in the club registration fee. All new athlete registrations must be accompanied by a clear photocopy of a government issued document showing proof of age. Acceptable documentation includes: certified birth certificate, driver’s license, or passport. These documents are shredded upon verification of information required for registration.
5. Team suits can be ordered/purchased at the start of the fall/winter season. There is no obligation to purchase a suit. Orders for suits will be taken on the night of fall registration and one order will be placed for all team suits (this is done so that we can receive a discount on the order). If you do order a team suit, it MUST be paid for at the time you order the suit. If you wish to order a team after the fall registration, you can still order a suit on your own. Information will be provided to you by the coordinator of team suits.
6. Your swimmers will be attending meets and there are fees associated with the events a swimmer participates in at all meets. You will be billed periodically by the club treasurer for any fees associated with meets that your swimmer may attend. If a swimmer signs up to attend a meet and later is not able to attend for whatever reason, those fees will still be billed to that swimmer’s account. Meet fees are non-refundable because they are paid by the club treasurer well in advance of the meets.
