*All prices include the $60 USA Swimming registration fee. This fee is necessary for insurance purposes and is required for all team members except those in the High School Fall or Spring Warm-up (who are covered under a different insurance policy). This registration fee is good through December 31, 2012 and makes swimmers eligible to swim in meets through that date.
By joining the GPAC program for the spring your swimmer(s) will be eligible to get priority registration for our 2012-2013 Fall/Winter/Spring season. This is especially important in an Olympic year as we expect several of our practice groups to close out. When a group closes out we do not accept mid-season or spring registrations for that group.
