We are once again offering the team spirit shop for Baylor Swim Club families. This service is provided through the Athletic Shop.

The store will be open until Wednesday, November 14th, and they will NOT accept any late orders. Once the store is closed it generally takes them about 2-3 weeks to process the entire order.

I just want to review some billing items with you. The TeamUnify system will bill accounts to you on the 1st of every month. The statements will contain your monthly dues and any other charges such as caps meet fees hospitality fees, etc. and a late fee will be assessed on the 21st of each month. Any payments that are unable to be processed on the 1st will accrue processing fees in addition to the charges. This fee comes from our processing merchant. Any accounts that are 30 days past due will result in your child being held out of the water.
Our developmental sessions are 8 week sessions so you will receive statements bi-monthly with the dues. As long as you are registered before the first day of the session you will be ready to participate in that session. Once you have registered the first time you will no longer be charged the USA and Club registration fees. Those fees are only charged at the beginning of each new swim year. Through TeamUnify you will automatically be billed for the next developmental session unless you have emailed the club by the 5th day of the month preceding the next session. So if you do not want to participate in session 2 you must email the club no later the October 5th. Telling your coach that you are not doing the next session will not keep you from being billed. Be sure to send the email to the club.
We will not allow children to practice until the online registration has been completed.
If you are planning on taking a break and your child is in AG, Junior, or Senior, remember in order not to be billed for the next month I need to have written notification at least 30 days in advance. So for example, if you know you are not going to swim in December I must receive an email from you stating that no later than Nov.1. If the written statement is not received by that date you will be charged. Please understand that telling the coach does not count as proper notification.
Notifications must be sent to Laura Pitman.
The yearly hospitality fee of $120 is charged in October. If you join in October or later the hospitality fee is charged the month of your registration. This is the only additional fee our families are charged outside of meet fees. We do not require any fund raising. The hospitality fee is to supply food for the coaches and officials at all of our hosted meets. Some of these people are here for 3 meals and they greatly appreciate our hospitality. If you have concerns about this fee please contact me directly.
The 2018-2019 Baylor Swim Club Team Handbook is now available in the Members section. The Team Handbook consists of all the policies and procedures for members that have joined the Baylor Swim Club. See the link above for the team handbook.
The Baylor Swim Club Volunteer Handbook is now posted online. Listed below are many of the opportunities available for parents to contribute and show their support of the Baylor Swim Club. Most positions are only necessary during home meets. See the link above for the volunteer handbook.
New folders have been created for the 2018-2019 season and are available. All awards from meets and past meets will be filed in the athletes folders on the pool deck. Each athlete on the Baylor Swim Club should have a folder where these awards will be placed after meets. Please have your child check the folders on the pool deck after practices. The folder boxes are located on a table next to the staff office on the pool deck. If for some reason your child does not have a folder, please email Coach Brian.
This is a reminder to all Baylor Swim Club members, that the only locker rooms that should be used are the lower school boys and girls locker rooms.
The upper school locker rooms and lockers are reserved only for Baylor School Varsity swimmers.
Please remember not to leave any personal belongings in the locker rooms or lockers. All equipment and belongs need to be taken home each night after practices. If any personal belongings or equipment are left in the locker rooms, it will be collected and placed in the lost and found area in the equipment room / endless pool room.
All athletes are required to leave phones, tablets, and any other device with a camera or recording abilities in the phone tree outside the locker room.
Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
