15 Truths About Swimming

Swimming is a sport like no other. You learn a lot about yourself throughout your years as a swimmer and the sport inherently instills valuable life lessons in you. Even when your time as a competitive swimmer is done, you still continue to learn more about the sport and have time to reflect.

Here are 15 very real and very honest truths about swimming:

Family Commitment Fee

The Swim-A-Thon is a great opportunity to help offset the $150 Family Commitment Fee. Although the commitment charge is mandatory, the Swim-A-Thon gives the swimmer's family the opportunity to defray costs by involving extended family and friends raising money that would otherwise have been a direct charge to the swimmer's family. All funds contributed by the swimmer's family and friends are 100% tax-deductible!

This year, the Family Commitment Fee will be divided into two installments of $75 each (December 1st and January 1st). This will be the case for everyone. If a swimmer registers in December, the commitment charge is $100; in January $75; in February 1st $50; in March $25 which is invoiced on the day they register. Email Billing for any questions.
