4. All swimmers MUST have a USA card. This applies to Premium, Flex 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 may 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 swimmer may want to attend some swim meets during the season and fees are required at some of the swim meets you may attend. You will be billed periodically by the club treasurer for any fees associated with meets that your swimmer has attended. 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 actual day the meet is held. All fees associated with any meet are shown in the meet flyer for that particular swim meet. Most of the YMCA Swim League meets do not have fees.
