Policies & Procedures
Monthly Dues – Monthly dues must be paid on the first business day of each month as agreed to in the Payment Option Form. A $25 late charge will be assessed if dues are not collected by the first of the month. When joining DACA after the first of the month, all fees (current month, next month, and registration fees) will be charged on the first of the following month.
Thereafter, each month all active families will receive a Billing Summary the week of the 21st. Details can be reviewed by logging into your Team Unify account. The charges will occur on the first business day of the following month.
- DACA does not pro-rate fees for partial months.
Registration Fee – An annual US Swimming membership registration fee is required of all competitive team swimmers. Registration fees are per calendar year (Jan-Dec). Fees for swimmers joining DACA in the last quarter of any calendar year will apply to the subsequent year.
Registration Fee Renewal – US Swimming membership renews annually. Registration fees will be charged to active swimmers accounts in January.
Perpetual Swim Program – DACA is an ongoing swim program. Membership will continue until DACA receives a Withdrawal Form (online). An active swimmer need not re-register each September.
Withdrawal – Withdrawal Forms (available at www.DACA.org) must be submitted electronically, by fax or by mail. A Withdrawal Form must be received no later than the 21st of the month to avoid being charged for the following month. There are no exceptions. Phone notification is not a valid form of notification.
Returning Swimmers – To return to DACA, a completed Returning Competitive Registration Packet must be received. Swimmers will be placed based on space availability. Forms are available at www.DACA.org.
National Group – Once a commitment is made to the National Team, dues are payable each month. Personal appointments, vacations, and other activities must not interfere with the National team practice and meet schedule. National Team swimmers withdrawing and returning in the same season are responsible for monthly fees missed. National swimmers will take their traditional break in August.
DACA reserves the right to terminate the membership of any member whose actions are considered detrimental to DACA's welfare as set forth in the organization's by-laws.
