MONTHLY TRAINING FEES – Training fees are paid per month by post-dated cheques, e-transfer, or credit card. The most senior swimmer in your family pays 100% of the applicable monthly training fees; additional swimmers pay 80% of applicable monthly training fees.

When your swimmer moves through groups, monthly fees will change. You will not be required to submit additional cheques but the additional amount will be added to your monthly bill.
Swim meet entries, team travel, accommodation and equipment costs, and the like, are additional to group fees, and will be billed to your account as they occur.

We require one month’s notice should you decide to withdraw from swimming. Please notify us by June 1st if you do not intend to swim through July.
