Information for Billing and Payments
Fee Structure/Monthly Dues
Training fees to finance pool costs and coach salaries for the Nanaimo Riptides are based on an annual charge and take into account training breaks at Christmas and in the spring as well as statutory holidays. The fee depends on the group level of your swimmer and increases as the amount of pool time and coaching time increase. The annual fee may be paid in ten monthly payments for your convenience.
I Can Swim fees are based on a per session fee. The fee depends on the group level of your swimmer.
Please visit NRST Registration , for current season fees for I Can Swim programs and Riptides monthly groups. Fees are payable regardless of how many scheduled workouts your child is able to attend. There are no make-up days offered. For medical absences of 2 weeks or more, a credit to the account can be requested with provision of a medical note to the office administrator .
As a non-profit group the club is unable to carry overdue accounts, so please keep your swimmers account up to date.
Swim BC Registration Fees
Upon registration each swimmer pays an annual insurance registration fee to Swim BC. These are assessed annually by Swim BC and administered by the Registrar. A portion goes to Swim Natation Canada, the national governing body for our sport. There are fixed fees for all I Can Swim participants and non competitive swimmers regardless of age. The fees for competitive swimmers (those wishing to swim in sanctioned meets and time trials) are dependent on the age of the swimmer each season

Swim Meet Fees
When you enter your children in swim meets there are additional meet fees set by the hosting club and published in a meet package prior to the event. The fees vary by meet and are billed to your swimmers account periodically throughout the season. Scratches from the meet must be made via writing to your coach before the hosted team's scratch deadline or fees will still be incurred on your account unless a medical note is provided.
Each swimmer (or family) has an individual account set up with the club in which fees and other expenses for that particular swimmer or family are recorded. YOUR ACCOUNTS MUST BE KEPT CURRENT.
♦ Swimmers with accounts that are one month in arrears WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO ENTER INTO MEETS.
♦ Swimmers with accounts that are two months in arrears WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN WORKOUTS.
♦ Swimmers may return to both of these activities when their account balance is paid in full.
