Finances/Billing Policy

Club Dues
Each swimmer must pay dues for each month that they swim.  If a swimmers swims at all in a given month (even if it is one day), they must pay dues for that month.  Also a swimmer participating in any club activity or swim meet must pay dues for that month.

The club does not send out monthly statements.

Dues are paid monthly.  Dues can be dropped of in the payment drop box, which is located on the wall right inside the SLO Swim Club office door. 
Dues payments may also be mailed to:

**At this time we do not accept online or credit card payments.

Monthly dues are due by the 1st of the month.  If a swimmer foresees difficulty in paying their dues, they should contact the club prior to the 10th of the month, so something can be worked out.

Late Fees

A dues payment is considered late if not paid by the 10th of the month.  If your monthly dues are not received by the 10th of the month, you will be charged a $10.00 late fee.  If after the 20th, dues are note received (or your balance is not paid), the swimmer will not be allowed to participate in any practice or club activities until the account is paid in full.

Initiation Fee: 
All new swimmers will be required to pay a one-time club initiation fee.

USA Swimming Registration Fee
All (non-masters) swimmers must register with USA Swimming.  Annual registration with USA swimming is required to be part of the club.  All swimmers must fill out a USA Swimming Registration Form each year and pay the appropriate fee ($64/year).  Once a member of USA swimming, you will receive all the rights and privileges of membership.  First time USA Swimming registrants must provide proof of date of birth (which may include a copy of your passport, birth certificate, or drivers license). 

US Masters Swimming Registration Fee
All Master's group swimmers must be registered with US Masters.  Annual Masters registration is done through Southern Pacific Masters Swimming (the local masters swim committee, part of US Masters) .  Unregistered swimmers are not allowed on the team.  All members must be registered with the San Luis Obispo Masters.  SMPS/USMS Registrations may be done online at  The club code for San Luis Obispo Masters is SLOM.  *Masters swimmers may register with USA Swimming if they wish, instead of USMS.
