REGISTRATION, FEES, AND COMMITMENTS
All MAC swimmers must complete the MAC Registration form and register with USA Swimming Registration. This registration is necessary to compete in USA Swimming meets and have insurance coverage with USA Swimming. Only USA Swimming registered swimmers and coaches will be allowed on deck during practices.
There is a $25.00 club registration fee and a USA Swimming Registration fee the amount of which depends on the level you chose
Monthly Fees are based on the your practice group:
- PURPLE GROUP $47.50 per month – Club Fees $40.00 Facility Fee $7.50
- GOLD GROUP $70.00 per month – Club Fees $50.00 Facility Fee $20.00
- BLUE GROUP $80.00 per month – Club Fees $50.00 Facility Fee $30.00
Monthly invoices will be sent out by email and you will need to pay through an online payment system. This is intended to be easier on you – not having to pass checks to John via your swimmer and easier on Jeff, the club accountant.
Swim Meet Fees vary from meet to meet; however a typical meet fees consist of individual event fees, Southeastern Surcharge, and Facility fee. Individual event fees run around $5.00 to $8.00, the Surcharge is $3.00 and the Facility fee varies from $7.00 to $10.00. For example a swimmer who swims 4 individual events @ $5.00 would have a meet cost of $20.00 plus $3.00 plus $7.00 for a total of $30.00.
USA Swimming Registration and Fee USA Swimming registration is required for each MAC swimmer. This registration and fee is required by the governing organization and is independent of the registration and fees for MAC. MAC swimmers who swam the 2018-19 season are currently registered and active through the end of this year, but swimmers that are new to MAC/USA Swimming need to complete this process at registration.
A short application and fee is required for registration with USA Swimming. There are three options. Only NEW Swimmers may use the FLEX Membership option.
- Premium or full-year membership which provides insurance and unlimited swim meets for $74.00 or
- Seasonal (150 days) membership which provides insurance and unlimited swim meets for $40.00 or
- NEW Swimmer FLEX membership which provides a low-cost way – $20.00 – to become involved in competitive swimming. It provides insurance but limits the swimmer to only two meets during the year. After a trial period if the swimmer wants to swim more meets they can upgrade to the PREMIUM membership.
