COMPETITIVE

Policies And Procedures

With my payment of the swimmer registration fee entitling my designated child or children to participate in the competitive swim program of De Anza Cupertino Aquatics (DACA), I agree to abide by the regulations and policies of DACA as set forth in the by-laws of the corporation.  I understand that it is my responsibility to read and familiarize myself with all of the following rules and regulations.

Specifically, I agree to adhere to the following established payment policies:

  1. 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/decline charge will be assessed if dues are not collected by the first of the month.  DACA’s billing system is automated.  New applicant’s registration fee and current month’s dues will be charged at the time of placement. 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 coming month.

  2. DACA does not pro-rate fees for partial months.  There are no credits or make ups for cancelled practices.

  3. Registration Fee – Please note this is a new process as USA Swimming has updated their registration procedure:

    • DACA Registration Fee – An annual $75 Registration Fee will be collected upon enrollment with the Competitive Team and every January thereafter.  Fees for swimmers enrolling for the first time in the last quarter of any calendar year will apply to the subsequent year.

    • USA Swimming Registration – Once placement within the Competitive Team is confirmed, families will receive an email with a link to complete the swimmer’s USA Swimming registration.  The USA Swimming registration needs to be completed by the parent/guardian within 48 hours of placement or the swimmer’s enrollment with DACA will be cancelled.  Registration fees are per calendar year (Jan-Dec).  USA Swimming membership renews annually.

  4. 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. 

  5. 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.

 

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.
