Agreement

Membership and Fees
  1. I understand that membership and/or swim team payment is my responsibility. 
  2. Convenience and/or Processing fees are the actual cost of transactions charged to Dad’s Club Swim Team (DCST) by merchant banks through our club-management systems. 
  3. DCST will accept automatic monthly payments that are set up on an auto-draft through the club management system, in which case I authorize my bank and/or credit card company to honor the pre-authorized electronic funds transfer for membership payments and/or contributions. 
  4. I am obligated to a $60 return check fee for declined drafts or checks. 
  5. I understand that my membership is continuous until 60 days after electronic notification has been received by the Dad's Club Swim Team via the website at www.dadsclub-swimteam.com. 
  6. I understand that my child(ren) may not be allowed to participate in Swim Team activities if my account is past due for any fees. 
  7. I understand that my child(ren) have a student membership to the club as part of his/her swim team monthly fee and that other family members may use the facility only if I upgrade to a family membership--available online for a nominal additional fee. 
  8. The Board of Directors may at its discretion auto-debit members for Board-approved facility and/or energy surcharges. 

Swim Team
  1. My child(ren) and I will abide by the Code of Conduct and Bullying Policy
  2. I understand that my participation as a parent volunteer is mandatory, and that I will abide by the volunteer/service-hour policy established by the Board of Directors. Currently, the policy requires Swim Team families (i) to volunteer at least 12 hours/points per family for home USA Swim meets or pay a fee of $500. Any penalties for failure to meet the volunteer/service-hour policy will be auto debited to my credit card or bank account on file. 
  3. As the parent/legal guardian of the swimmer I give permission to have pictures and information regarding my swimmer to be displayed on the Dad's Club Swim Team website. 
  4. As the parent/legal guardian of this minor child, I hereby authorize the Dad's Club Swim Team staff or team representative to seek medical or surgical treatment for the child, as is deemed necessary in order to assure the safety of the child. 
  5. I understand that swim team schedules and notices are posted online and this is the primary method of various notifications including upcoming meets, meet entries, meet times, and meet fees. 

Swim Meets
  1. I understand that it is my obligation to pay meet entry fees as per the corresponding Meet Announcement(s). Typically, these range from $5.00-15.00 per individual event and occasionally a meet fee--depending on the meet. Relay meet entries will be billed according to the entries made by the coaches. 
  2. I understand that I am solely responsible for notifying coaching staff before the published cut-off date in the event my child will not attend a meet that is on the online schedule, otherwise I will be responsible for the meet charges that DCST will incur. These fees are not subject to refund. I agree that my account will be billed for meet fees and associated Processing fees and automatic payment of those charges will be billed to my checking or credit-card account on file. Notification will be via the “Non-attendance” button on the Meets & Results page on the team’s website. 
  3. Coaches' travel expenses for meets outside of the Houston Metro Area and/or that require overnight stay will be split between the meet participants. 
Fundraising
  1. Each swimmer is obligated to raise at least the training team minimum at the Fall fundraiser--the Swim Marathon. 
    Training team minimum: 
    • White/Blue $150
    • Bronze/Silver/Gold/Senior/Senior Elite $200
  2. For failure to raise the above minimums, I agree that my account will be billed an amount equal to the balance to the training team minimum, plus Processing fees.

Termination
  1. White/Blue/Bronze/Silver/Senior: I fully understand the obligation to give a 60-day electronic notice, as noted in Membership above. The stop date for auto debits will be the first of the month following the end of the 60-day notice. No prorated or partial monthly fees are allowed.
  2. Gold and Senior Elite training groups require a 1-year commitment. We understand that paying an annual fee could be difficult. We are providing monthly payment options. This swimmer's commitment must be for 1 year (from September to August). No refunds will be allotted for this group. 
  3. I understand that there is absolutely no refund on my registration fees, including USA Swim Team registration, regardless of the circumstances.
