HHSC Membership and Registration Fees
The total cost for the year to be a member of the Hammerhead Swim Club (and a registered member of USA Swimming) is $450. Every Hammerhead swimmer must be a member of USA Swimming. The USA Swimming registration fee ($69) is included in the price of Hammerhead registration. You can choose to pay the total price in full, at the beginning of the year; or, you can make a deposit of $225 at the start. The remaining balance of $225 is due at a later date. If you have more than one swimmer in your family, the price for two swimmers is double the cost ($900). If you have more than two swimmers, the third swimmer (and any swimmers numbering more than two in one family) only has to pay $100 which includes the USA Swimming registration fee of $69 per swimmer.
30 Day Trial
An option we have for new members is our 30 Day Trial. The only requirement is that the swimmer must not have been a Hammerhead swimmer in the past. You pay a non-refundable deposit of $115 for each swimmer. 30 days is enough time in the water for swimmers to experience practice, and to understand what is expected of them. It’s also enough time to get to know the coaches, and to gain a little confidence by swimming with others with similar abilities. Anytime during the 30 days, you can decide to quit. If you are still with us at the end of 30 days, you have two options:
- You decide the club is not for you and you wish to discontinue. We appreciate that you gave us a “test drive”. The $115 deposit you made is non-refundable.
- You decide the club offers an interesting challenge, and your child will continue. Inform any board member of your wishes to stay with the club. The initial deposit of $115 will go toward the yearly cost. The remaining balance of $335 is due at a later date. Once your child decides to join the club, the child cannot compete in any meets until he/she is registered with USA Swimming, which takes about two weeks.
Download a registration form. You can register any time. We hold practice at the SUNY Fredonia Natatorium from 6:15pm to 7:45pm Monday through Friday. There are locker rooms available.
