Fees And Other Costs

Swimming families pay several kinds of fees:

    • Swimming Organization

Annual dues for memberships in the several organizations which are part of the hierarchy tasked with overseeing competitive swimming from the local pool to the Olympics.

    • Coaching

Payment to the coaching staff for their time, patience and expertise. CSSC's coaching fees are due monthly.

    • Facility

Payment for a place to practice and other physical plant based services. CSSC families pay the Aquatic Complex of Coral Springs memberships fees which are due either quarterly or annually, depending on the contract the family chooses. City of Coral Springs Aquatic Complex memberships are for the use of the various complex facilities and are entirely independent of the Swim Club.

    • Meet Entry

Fees for swimming in sanctioned meets. Also, fines for violating the entry rules at sanctioned meets.

    • Gate

If you want to see your swimmer perform, your going to have to buy a ticket... unless you.... Volunteer! Also, there are t-shirts, and heat sheets, souvenirs and refreshments to buy, of course.

Other Costs

It's not auto racing but age group swimming has its share of operating costs:

    • Swimsuits

You will be amazed.

    • Training Equipment

Goggles, towels, sandals, flippers. warm up suits (yes, even in SO FLA), and parkas. Older swimmers will want their own training equipment, such as hand paddles, kick boards, in and out of water resistance equipment, flippers of various lengths for different kicking drills, counters and stop watches.

    • Travel and Lodging

Away meets are sometimes very far away. Even our youngest swimmers will have the opportunity to compete in places like Key West or Largo (not the Key) or even Baton Rouge.

    • CSSC Social Events

The annual awards banquet, pre-meet pasta suppers, Halloween parties, etc. All have modest costs attached.

    • Fund Raisers

Band candy isn't just for the band.

Member Families

To put a single swimmer in the water in a USA Swimming sanctioned event, one needs a coach, three officials, and at least one timer. It's pretty certain that the officials and the timer are related to a swimmer and are volunteering their time.

Swimming is a family affair. Even if a family has just one swimmer, parents and siblings will become part of the sport. Getting the swimmer to and from practices and meets, making certain the swimmer follows the coaches diet and exercise recommendations, and helping run swimming meets become part of the swimming family lifestyle.

CSSC is fortunate to be a premier swim club with superb facilities which also happen to be centrally and conveniently located in a very fast, competitive LSC. Along with this good fortune comes responsibility. CSSC regularly hosts swimming meets, little and large. A big meet like the Junior Olympics can require as many as 150 volunteer slots which need to be filled. Most of those slots are filled by CSSC Members' families.

The Booster Club

Our Booster Club is tasked with organizing, staffing and operating our home swim meets. Additionally, its members take on many of daily administrative chores for the club, raise funds for travel meets, organize and manage club social activities, help set club policy, and , help determine how best to spend the funds raised. If you have a CSSC swimmer in your family, you are automatically a member of the Booster Club. It's free!

Our Volunteers

On the other hand, you don't need to be a member of the Booster Club to be a volunteer. High school students in need of service hours, former swimmers needing to smell the chlorine again, current swimmers between meets, philanthropists and do-gooders of all stripes, we take take them all. And, we're happy to have them.

Finally, remember our Volunteer Motto: "We Work for food (and inexpensive T-shirts, too!)"
