Responsibility for Payment of Fees

Your Registration Fee for the SA program is not refundable once submitted.

Parents are responsible for the payment of all fees for the full season.

If your swimmer does not wish to complete the season and withdraws from the program for any reason after September 30th, parents are responsible for payment of the full contracted Program Fee and any outstanding Meet Fees to SA.  All pool rental and coaching contracts are executed prior to the start of the season based upon our registration numbers and thus full program fees are essential to SA's operating costs. 


The first two weeks of practice September 18 – September 30, 2023 is considered a “trial period” and your swimmer may withdraw during this period having only paid the Registration Fee. Any credit on the account will be refunded.

However, if the swimmer withdraws after September 30th, SA is not able to provide a refund. All pool rental and coaching contracts are executed prior to the start of the season based upon our registration numbers. Exceptions may be made for military families leaving the area in service to our country and medical reasons with supporting documentation. If a swimmer decides to not complete the full season with SA, the family remains responsible for any outstanding Program fees, Meet fees, and/or equipment fees. 


All pool rental and coaching contracts are executed prior to the start of the season based upon our registration numbers. Therefore, there is no proportion of fees for partial attendance of a program. 


Medical: Should your athlete sustain a serious medical condition and is unable to participate in our program for a period greater than 4 weeks, your account will be suspended. You must supply the SA office with a medical doctor’s note to substantiate this suspension. You may be eligible for a partial refund of the program fees at the team manager's discretion. 

Military Family moving away from the area: Please inform the Team Manager in writing as soon as possible. Unused Program fees will be credited and refunded per the Team Manager’s discretion or any balance due is expected to be paid before departure.
