Dues and Fees
Dues and Fees:
The National Federation of High School Swimming and Diving governs high school swimming. It is organized and operated by individual booster clubs. The Gwinnett County Swim & Dive Booster Club does all of the scheduling, pool reservations, hiring of officials, and data management for all teams in Gwinnett County. Our Norcross boosters support our team by supplying volunteers at meets, distributing uniforms and spirit wear, and generally supporting the team and coaches in anything they need. In order to provide this support, our club collects annual fees of $240 plus a refundable $150 deposit. The breakdown of fees is as follows:
- $115 – goes to Gwinnett County Booster Club to pay for the use of competition pools, practice pools, lane lines, paid officials, computers, and software used at meets.
- $125 – goes to our Norcross High School Booster Club to help pay for scholarships, bus transportation, supplies, stopwatches, coach gifts, banquet facilities, team socials, championship meet meals, and t-shirts for state qualifiers.
- $150 refundable volunteer deposit – this is collected as a separate check so that the checks can be shredded upon completion of the parent volunteer requirement. The volunteer requirement for families with one swimmer is to fulfill three volunteer opportunities. For families with two or more swimmers, completion of four volunteer shifts fulfills the refund requirement.
- In addition to these fees, a team swimsuit and warm-up jacket must be purchased when a new swimmer joins the team. Other spirit-wear items offered by the team, such as sweatshirts and duffle bags, are optional. These can be ordered on registration night.
