USA/AMS Swimming Registration Fee

PTSC is a member of USA Swimming and the Allegheny Mountain Swimming LSC. As a result, all PTSC members are required to register with USA Swimming through their Online Member Registration. Swimmers in Development 1 through Gold practice groups will register for the Premium Athlete membership ($90 per swimmer). Swimmers in Novice and Pre-Competitive practice groups will register for the Flex Athlete membership ($32 per swimmer).  This registration provides many benefits and swimming-related portals, as well as excess accident and liability coverage. This fee is non-refundable. Members will pay directly to USA Swimming through their Online Member Registration.

PTSC Registration Fee

The PTSC registration fee of $50 per family provides the membership with online access to team information and management of your account. This fee is non-refundable and due at time of registration.

Meet Entry Fees

"Splash Fees" will be invoiced three times a year.  Specifically, they will be charged on January 1 for all splash fees incurred from September through December, on April 1 for fees incurred from January 1 through the end of the short course season, and August 1 for all fees incurred in the long course season.  Splash fees are fees incurred each time a swimmer competes in an event at a meet.  While the fees might vary depending upon the host team's set-up, they are typically $5-$10 per swimmer per event.  The exact amount will be listed on the meet announcement which will be posted on line for members to review.

Team Suits & Equipment

Each swimmer will be given two team T-shirts and two swim caps which are expected to be worn at swim meets. Team suits are recommended for meets and may be purchased through a recommended vendor. Training equipment (goggles, fins, pull buoy, kick board, paddles) will be required and can be purchased online via our team store.  We can no longer utilize shared equipment at the pool due to CDC COVID-19 guidelines.

Delinquency Policy:

All dues and fees are expected to be paid prior to the due date established. Failure to pay fees on a timely basis will result in termination of club privileges, including practices, meets, and other team functions until such time as all fees are paid. For every month that scheduled payments are not met, an additional $25 per month will be added to the balance due before participation privileges will be reinstated. Member family will be responsible for any and all unpaid fees. Please be sure the club always has up-to-date credit card information, so it is not charged a processing fee for an out of date credit card.

Returning Members are those swimmers who have previously been registered as club members any time within the previous two (2) swim seasons. Returning members are responsible for the full amount of the annual dues regardless of when during the swim season registration actually takes place.
