We encourage members to use free, convenient direct payment of fees either by credit card or ACH bank transfer through the team’s website. Beginning September 2011, there is no added fee for this service.
SEMI ANNUAL DUES:
The Lawrence Aquahawks Swim Club has semi annual dues of $25 per swimmer. This fee is billed in September and March. If you join after the quarterly billing date, you will be charged a prorated amount for that quarter. There are no refunds should a swimmer leave during the quarter.
ANNUAL USA SWIMMING FEE:
The Lawrence Aquahawks Swim Club is a member of USA Swimming which requires all swimmers to register and pay a $60 annual fee. This fee will serve as a secondary insurance policy for your swimmer in case of any accident that may occur while in the pool with the Aquahawks. This fee is charged to your September 1st invoice and is due by Sept 20th. If you start after September 1st it is due within two weeks of joining the team.

The Lawrence Aquahawks conducts two team fundraising events each year. Details of each event and the fundraising requirements are described below.
Wave the Wheat Meet: Each Silver, Gold, Platinum, Senior and National swimmer is required to raise a minimum of $175 during the Wave the Wheat fundraiser from advertising sales. This event occurs in July of each year. Any shortfall is billed in the next monthly billing. Each swimmer will be assigned businesses that they will contact and ask to purchase advertising for the Aquahawk Wave the Wheat Heat Sheet, PowerPoint Presentation or a Banner. This is the primary fundraiser for the club.
In lieu of participation, swimmers may opt out at the beginning of the year at a cost of $240, billed in 12 monthly installments of $20 (based on the approximate average sponsorship raised by swimmers who do participate).
The USA Swimming Swim-a-thon:Each swimmer in Silver, Gold, Platinum, Senior and National is required to raise $75.00 from pledges for swimming laps on a set date in the late fall. Any shortfall is billed in the next monthly billing.
The long course 2012 service hours have been set for 20 hours per family. Although this requirement is for swimmers in Silver, Gold, Platinum, Senior and National groups, we appreciate all families helping us run quality meets. If your Bronze or Senior 2 swimmer is participating in the meet, you are expected to volunteer as well. Intrasquad and Wave the Wheat are the two meets that will fulfill these hours. Please sign up promptly for the jobs and times you want
All balances are due in full by the 20th of the month for the previous month's invoice. Otherwise there will be a $15 late fee.
We offer financial assistance based upon a demonstrated need for families. Please contact our business manager or treasurer.
