Swimmers who have NEVER particpated with ANY USA Swimming team, or those who are transferring from another team and have a valid 2017 USA Swimming registration, may attend practices for up to one week before registering, however, the parent MUST remain at the practice location for all practices until the swimmer has been registered. You will also not receive important team communications or be able to enter for meets until registration has been completed.
ALL Returning USC swimmers, or swimmers who are transferring from another USA team but do not have current USA Swimming membership, MUST register before attending their first practice.
- ALL Swimmers must register with USA Swimming through our registration tool, as well as Lake Erie Swimming, the local swimming committee - $65 per season.
- Meet entry fees are an additional cost. Typically meet events are $3-$5 per event, and a swimmer would swim 2-4 events per day. Swimmers usually swim a meet or two each month. All meet entries are completed by the swimmer's family through an online entry form which requires entering a credit card at the time of entry.
- Equipment – Though not required, a team suit and cap are recommended. Additionally, items such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, pants, etc. are available for purchase through the team.
Swimmers who try out for the team and then join owe dues starting the first day of tryouts.
Swimmers who change groups will be charged or refunded the difference.
Swimmers leaving the team must notify the registrar in writing. Paid team practice fees can be refunded within 10 days of purchase, less a 10% processing fee. Meet fees, USA Swimming, LESC Fees, and USC Registration fees will not be refunded.
There is NO cancellation of monthly payments for any reason.
There is a $2 USC surcharge for each meet entered
Families are responsible for all meet entry fees once the entry has been submitted to the team, regardless of whether the swimmer actually attends the meet.
The family of each swimmer is responsible for paying LESI meet fines incurred. Examples of fines include: scratching at a Championship Meets or swimming slower than the time standard required to enter an event. Additionally, the fined swimmer will pay a $2.00 surcharge to USC. For more questions about fines please speak with Coach Charlie.
Payment remiders are emailed to each family on a monthly basis when applicable. It is the family's responsibility to have a current email address on file with the registrar.
Failure to pay your account balance when due can result in the swimmer not begin permitted to enter meets and/or practice until the balance has been paid.
