Registration and Rates

Registration/New Swimmer Evaluation SignUps Open March 15

Returning swimmers will have the opportunity to register first. All swimmers who swam with CGST in either 2017 (or 2016) can register beginning March 15. The registration link will be sent via email and posted here starting March 15.

ALL new to CGST swimmers, including siblings of returning swimmers and swimmers with swim team experience elsewhere, will be asked to participate in a short swim evaluation. We anticipate that evaluations will be held Wednesday April 25 (4:30-6:30pm), Friday April 27 (4:30-6:30pm), and Saturday April 28 (8:30-10:00am). A signup link for those dates/times will be posted here starting March 15. We will notify families by May 1.

Links will be here starting March 15. (Not to worry, nothing will fill immediately. You do not have to set an alarm to be able to register early!)

2018 Update on Fees: Last year, we paid almost $1700 in processing fees. Please read below to understand changes in payment process. 

2018 Rates/Policy:

We can no longer afford to absorb credit card fees associated with our registration system. It is important to continue to use so that coaches can create meet lineups, so that familes can decare themselves eligible for each meet, and so we can have our email system. Registration rates will remain the same as 2017 for 2018, with one adjustment.

All families will be required to register through and pay a down payment of $50 per swimmer, with a $2.48 transaction fee.

Families have options as to how to pay the balance. You can opt to pay the balance due during your initial registration process by using the "Optional Second Payment option under Additional Purchases". This will incur transaction fees (4.95%). Or, families may choose to write a check for the balance due, and either mail it or turn it in (details to follow). There are no transaction fees for this option. Checks should be made out to CGST.

Please note, families may opt to pay balance online at a later time, if families wish to spread out payments. This will incur transaction fees.

All fees (both down payment and balance payment) are due by April 18.  REMINDER, we can no longer offer registration refunds. Please make sure you and your swimmer can meet the general expections as outlined on our home page and can commit to the swim team for the entire summer season prior to registering. Specific exceptions to this policy will be handled on a case by case basis.

Below are the CGST rates for 2018, which give the swimmer access to ALL practices, meets, and team events. 

  • first swimmer in family - $155 ($50 initial payment plus $105 second payment) 
  • second sibling - $130  ($50 initial payment plus $80 second payment)
  • third sibling - $120 ($50 initial payment plus $70 second payment)
  • fourth (and beyond) sibling - $110 ($50 initial payment plus $60 second payment)


We do offer scholarships to swimmers who cannot afford to pay full price. Scholarships are awarded based on need. You can download an application here: SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION FORM

IN ADDITION, each swimmer MUST have an active YMCA membership to gain membership to the pool. Membership is handled by the YMCA. 

Your options for membership are: 

  • Family Membership, which is $69/month with a one time joining fee of $100 
  • Youth Membership, which is $22/month with a one time joining fee of $25
  • Special Youth Gator Summer Membership, which is a flat fee of $78.50. This gives the swimmer a full youth membership only during the summer swim team season. This does not extend to siblings or parents. If parents/siblings plan to watch practice, that is fine, but they will need to pay the Daily Pass Rate in order to swim in the pool.

Half-price joining fees and the Youth Gator Summer Membership can be purchased by coordinating with the Y. Membership must be active by start of practice season, May 15, 2018.
