Chinook Group Times and Fees

Please note: The monthly payment plan is to make it easier on families to make the payments for the program.  This is not a fee for service.  There are holidays through the season and practices that are canceled due to competitions. Payment is not stopped for vacation.  The money owing is for the year.  If your swimmer decides that swimming is not their sport, then one month notice must be given prior to stopping payment.

 Volunteer Fee-Suggested ways to make back money

Because our club is a non-profit organization we are run by a volunteer Board of Directors. We rely strongly on parents participating in the running of our program.  When you register with the Chinook Swim Club, (You will be charged a 200$ volunteer fee which will be credited back to you throughout the season as you participate in our volunteer activities.  Some of the opportunities to volunteer are listed below with their dollar value.  You will not be credited back more than 200$ even if you continue to support the club through your volunteer efforts. 

Purdys- $10 for every amount over $200 sold to a maximum amount of outstanding volunteer payment. 

2 x Mini Meet- $20 per mini meet (Timing, food organizer, clean up)

Raffle Ticket- $10 per book

Volunteer at away meets- $40.00 per session (This is an expectation when your swimmers are traveling to other meets to participate as a timer or volunteer in some capacity) 

Fundraiser coordinator-$50 for each event organized up to your 200$ deposit.  You can delegate duties to other members that wish to be part of the fundraising committee.  

Volunteering is a great way to get to know other parents and be a part of our swim family. If your schedule does not allow for this type of commitment then the volunteer fee can be considered part of your registration fees.
