DUES: Our club charges annual dues to cover basic operation costs: pool rental fees, training and game equipment, coaching fees, tournament entry fees, and administrative costs. We send electronic invoices via Square, where you can pay online with a credit or debit card, or you have the option to mail a check. Club membership renewal invoices go out in January. Dues vary based on the program. We offer prorated dues to new members who join midyear.


What to bring to practice: suit, towel, goggles, water bottle. We also recommend wearing/bringing workout attire, socks and sneakers in case there is lightning and we have a dry land workout instead.

Weather Policy: The lightning radar alerts us when lightning strikes within an 8 mile radius. At that time, everyone needs to exit the pool and clear the pool deck. If that happens, practice moves to the gym where we do a dry land workout until the all clear alert is given (30 minutes after the last lightning strike within 8 miles). If we do a full hour of dry land, and the lightning is still within 8 miles, we will let the kids leave at that time.
