BAC at FDU Fees

*Please note that the invoice due date is the 15th of each month.

 

 

You will be billed for four categories of fees throughout the year:

 

 

1.  Membership/Program Fees:  The membership/program fees are listed below with a schedule of when they are billed.  Membership fees are never refunded.  In July, you will be asked to “re-register” for the following year and give a $500 non-refundable initial payment per swimmer to hold his/her spot.  Failure to re-register may mean that your swimmer loses his/her spot on the team and/or is asked to try out again.  This BAC Team membership covers September through the end of July.

 

 

2.  USA Swimming Registration:  EVERY swimmer must be USA Swimming registered.  USA swimming registration provides insurance for us and for your athlete.  If your child is injured going to or from a swim meet or swim practice, or at a swim meet or practice, ask the coach to fill out a USA Swimming Accident report.

USA swimming will contact you and tell you how you can use the insurance as a secondary insurance to cover deductibles or anything else not covered by your primary insurance, up to a limit.  

 

The USA Swimming Premium Athlete Registration Fee will be $100 per swimmer for the 2024-2025 season.  Each parent of a new BAC athlete will receive a direct link to the NEW USA-SWIMMING ON-LINE MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION (OMR) site. You will need to create a family account and register each of your swimmers prior to attending their first practice.  The USA Swimming website will be asked for payment at the end.  Returning BAC athletes whose family accounts are in good standing, will have their athlete membership renewed in January 2025. 

 

 

 

 

3.  Meet Fees:  Each swimmer is charged for the meets and events in which he/she participates, including his/her portion of a relay.  The non refundable fees for most meets can be found in the meet information posted with the event.  Once a swimmer has signed up for a meet and the signup deadline has passed, the family will be charged.  If the coaches have not yet sent in their entries, it may be possible to email the coach and ask for the swimmer to be removed from the event.  However, entries are often sent in MONTHS ahead of a meet and there is no guarantee that the swimmer can be removed.  Changing your commitment on Team Unify is not sufficient to remove your swimmer from a meet.  Rather, you must email the coach AND receive an affirmative response.  In general, if you sign up, you are obligated to pay.  (There is a $2 per event and $5 per day surcharge BAC admin fee charged for most non BAC hosted meets.)  Fees are not refunded due to illness or injury. In most cases, BAC has already paid the hosting club and will not be able to get a refund.

 

 

4.  Event Participation:  Sign ups and payment for Age Group Activities (e.g. pizza parties, bowling parties) are done through our registration system and must be paid by credit card.  This information will be specified for each event.

 

 

 

Important Notes:

1.  You will be billed on the first of the month.  If you have not paid by midnight on the 15th of the month, starting with the September bill, you will be charged a monthly late fee of $25.  This late fee is generated automatically by the billing system; therefore, if you are mailing or dropping off a check, the check must be received by BAC BILLING by the 15th.

 

 

2.  You have the option of using credit cards or automatic withdrawal from your checking account.  You can set this up in the Sports Engine / Team Unify web platform so that it happens automatically on the first of the month or you can pay on a time by time basis by entering your data each time.  NO ONE at BAC, Sports Engine or at Team Unify has access to your credit card information.  Some registrations or events (not membership or meet fees) may require a credit card.  You may enter your credit card just to pay for that event or you can choose to save it in the system and pay your bill automatically each month.   

 

Note there is a 4% convenience fee associated with any electronic payments for Membership/Program Fees.  Families have the option of remitting payment via check which must be postmarked and or received no later than September 15th 2024 (for the October 1st installment) and December 15th 2024 (for the January 1st installment).

Billing questions - [email protected]

 

 

 

 

If your child leaves the club or changes groups after registering:  You are responsible for all fees.

 

If your swimmer transfers to another club:  You must meet all financial obligations before you will be released from BAC.  At that point your swimmer will be able to swim for the other club.

 

If your swimmer elects to move down a practice group during the season:  You are responsible for all fees in your original practice group.

 

If your swimmer is provided the opportunity to move up a practice group during the season: You will have the option to accept that opportunity.  That transition between groups would be with the additional acceptance of the associated prorated increased program fees for the higher-level group.
