The Yearly Registration Fee must be paid to be registered with MD Swimming/USA Swimming. This allows swimmers to compete and take part in USA/MD sanctioned events.  This also includes USA Swimming medical and liability insurance at sanctioned events. These fees are paid online at the time of registration.

The Seasonal Membership Dues cover the cost of coaches attending meets, as well as other swim team expenses. These fees are paid by check, seasonally,  and can be given to the Head Coach or Treasurer.


Failure to pay any associated fees before a meet or for each season will result in the swimmer being barred form participating in swim meets. Failure to pay USA Swimming fees within 30 days of individual registration will result in swimmer being dropped from team roster.  To inquire about financial assistance, please contact the Head Coach or Treasurer.
