Please note that invitational meets, foreign meets and National competitions will all require parents to pay a meet entry fee.  These fees will differ depending on the host. The fees tend to be a flat rate and are to enable the host team to pay for the hire of officials and the purchase of ribbons, medals and trophies.

Singapore National Age Group meets currently charge approx $12 per swim.

Not all competitions have an entry charge.  You will not be charged for internal club meets and friendly meets against another school/club.  ACSIS and SEASAC fees will be included in your original sign up cost for the Season

For representative meets such as SEASAC swimmers must participate in a competitive squad for all 4 seasons to be eligible for selection.  Swimmers who train in the Time Trial squad will therefore not be eligible to swim at SEASAC.  However if this swimmer is showing potential they will be encouraged to join the Senior/JAG squad programmes (inclusive of squad training commitments).
