TRAINING GROUP DESCRIPTIONS & FEES

The Beachwood Bison Swim Program would offer a variety of training groups and swim lessons ranging from beginner to Masters. We will offer a full swim lessons program for beginning swimmers though adults which will introduce basis swimming mechanics. These programs will be offered on a 3-6 week period throughout the year.

 

Our training programs will vary in intensity, amount of training time, the meet participation expectations, and the amount of additional dryland training that will be provided. When a swimmer registers for the season, the swimmers group would be determined by an evaluation process which be conducted in August/September and possibly March by the coaching staff. Movement to a more advanced group will only occur at the coaches’ discretion based upon skills improvement, attendance and commitment to the sport of swimming. There will be a swimmer to coaching ratio for each group of 1 to 15/20 depending on level. The beginning levels will have a lower coach to swimmer ratio. If there are any parent concerns please contact Brad to discuss. I will do my best to resolve the issue and help each swimmer!

 

There will be a break between seasons for all training groups.
FALL CONDITIONING - 6 WEEK PROGRAM PRIOR TO THE START OF HIGH SCHOOL/MIDDLE SCHOOL SWIMMING.
LEVELS 1-3  - LATE SEPTEMBER UNTIL LATE FEBRUARY OR MID MARCH BASED ON MEETS SWIMMERS QUALIFY.  MID APRIL UNTIL MEMORIAL WEEKEND.

LATE FEE: AN ADDITIONAL 10% FEE WILL BE CHARGED TO OVERDUE BALANCE

A $10 entry fee surcharge will be assessed to each swimmer for each meet
they enter plus each event. There will be an entry fee escrow account created for each swimmer to cover the cost of all competitions. Once you commit to the meet you are responsible for all meet fees whether you attend or not. If your swimmer causes a relay to be scratched by not attending the meet or leaving early you will be billed for the whole relay expense. All swimmers must check in with coaches before leaving meets.

 

Bison Swim Club Payment Arrangements & Guidelines

Effective with the 2010/11 Season the following will apply with respect to

payment of fees related to Beachwood Bison swimming.

* A non-refundable deposit of $200 is due before registration/evaluation. This deposit will be applied to your training fees. This will reserved a spot for the individual to be on the team and get pool time. The first $200 of payments made in full or by a payment plan will be considered the
non-refundable deposit.

 Bison Refund Policy:
Refunds of fees paid and the release of your financial commitment is generally not available once the fall season has begun.  Moving out of town - 100% refund of the remaining pro-rata portion of the season's fees based on the remaining full months of the swim season of financial commitment (fall/winter/spring, summer) minus the non-refundable deposit and administrative fees.

Medical reasons (injury, serious illness) as supported by a doctor's excuse - 100% refund of the remaining pro-rata portion of the season's fees based on the pr
ior to calculating any refund, all amounts owed to the club must be paid in full minus the non-refundable deposit and the administrative fees. (ie. entry fees, etc.)

You are committing to a one year contract with the Beachwood Bison Swim Club. If refunds are granted by the Parents Advisory Board they will be processed at the end of the 12 month swim season. This agreement is the same as a gym membership whether you attend all practices offered or not.

Meet Sign-ups


Meet commitment forms are located on the meet page prior to each season. Deadlines for the commitment form and meets are posted. MEET DEADLINES ARE FINAL.

Meet escrow balances must have sufficient funds prior to the meet deadline or a swimmer will not be entered in a meet. Please plan for approximately $30 per meet.
Once you commit to a meet your swimmer will be entered by the coaching staff and you are committed financially for the meet. All events are chosen by the coaches. Be prepared to have your swimmers qualify to Championships at the end of the seasons on either relays or individually.  Top relays will be posted in January and updated every meet. All relays will be swum fastest four.

 

Team Policies

This will be spelled out as season unfolds. Basically be on time for practices and meet warm ups. The coach will have the right to sit the swimmer out of meets or practices if necessary.

The first part of the meet and practices are very important for all swimmers as we prepare your swimmer mentally and physically for training or competition. This is essential!

Each swimmer must check with coaches at meets about swimming relays before leaving.

If you leave and are entered on a relay you will be charged for the whole event.

Every High School age swimmer will be required to purchase, read and tested over materials from the www.Fasterswimming.com book on mechanics, training and race strategies.

The Beachwood City Schools Code of Conduct will be the standard for swimmers and parents. The link is provided on the registration form which at the top of this page.
