IT COSTS A LOT OF MONEY TO HAVE A SWIM TEAM! Part of belonging to any organization includes the responsibility to raise the money necessary for the group to operate. Each year the Dillo Board evaluates the team's projected budget, sets the registration fees and determines goals for local business sponsorship and fundraising events.
This year’s registration fees are as follows:
1st Child $225, Second Child $205, Third(+) Child $190
Children over age 15 (starting with second child unless you only have one swimmer) -- $155.00
Please note that the NWSC Board has approved an option for any swimmers that participated with a NWSC team in 2019, who would have aged out in the 2020 season, to participate in the 2021 season.
These fees are the team's primary source of financial support and help cover the following expenses:
- Pool rental for practices and swim meets
- Northwest Swim Circuit Fees
- Coach’s Salaries
- Team T-Shirts & One Latex Team Cap
- Swimmer Insurance
- Computer and printing supplies
- Divisional Swim Meet Entry Fees
The cost of the racing suit and equipment is in addition to the registration fees.
Each swimmer will need to purchase a solid navy or solid back racing swim suit. Some swimmers may want to purchase a silicone cap depending on swimmer preference. Team swim caps are available for purchase during registration.
Typically, our swim meets are held on Saturday mornings, with the site rotating among the home pools of the NW Swim Circuit member teams. All the Dillo home meets are held in Georgetown, Texas. In 2021, all swim meets will be "virtual." We will merge Dillo times with the other NWSC team we are swimming against.
Swimmers are required to participate in a minimum of 2 official meets per season; however, we strongly encourage all swimmers to participate in every swim meet if possible. Swimmers who do not participate in the required number of meets will not be eligible to early register the following season. Meets provide the opportunity for swimmers to gauge their progress and see the results of their hard work during practice. Each and every swimmer is critical to the team’s overall performance and is therefore expected to participate in as many meets as possible. League rules require each swimmer to have swum in a minimum of two meets during the regular season in order to be eligible to swim at the Divisional Meet in July. It is our team goal to have 100% participation at the Divisional Meet.
