Swim Team Policies

BDA Payment Policies apply to swim team and swim academy.

BDA swim team is divided into four sessions throughout the year. Each session has its own enrollment period. 
  • Fall (September – October)
  • Winter (November – February)
  • Spring (March – May)
  • Summer (June – August)

Our enrollment/cancellation policy is different for Summer 2020 as we can only have so many swimmers per practice for social distancing. Enrollment will be per day, not monthly as usual.  Please enroll for as many or as few practices as fit your schedule.  However, we do need you to enroll before attending practice so we can maintain social distancing.

To cancel a swim team practice, please email with your request. 
If the cancellation request is received 72 hours or less in advance of the scheduled swim practice, the practice is considered a student absence and
  • that practice fee will remain on the account
  • NO CREDIT or REFUND will be issued
  • If the cancellation request is received between 72 hours and 14 days in advance of the scheduled swim practice, the practice will be cancelled and
  • that practice fee will remain on your account and partial payment is still due
  • 50% of that practice fee is still due unless a replacement swimmer takes your spot
  • if another swimmer takes your spot, only 25% of that practice fee is still due
  • if paid, the appropriate amount will be applied to unpaid fees or a credit balance will remain on the account
  • If the cancellation request is received at least 15 days in advance of the scheduled swim practice, the practice will be cancelled and
  • the practice fee will be deleted from the account
  • if paid, that amount will be applied to unpaid fees or a credit balance will remain on the account
  •  If your child is sick please do not attend swim team practice.


    BDA swim team enrolls on a monthly basis, offering the opportunity to choose a desired number of practices per month or to skip one or more months.
    • You will choose a primary practice location (Chapel Hill, Durham or Daytime).  
      Swimmers may practice at other non-primary locations during the practice time of his/her particular level (Grey, White, Blue).
    • You must try-out once for the swim team BEFORE enrolling in any sessions
      • If you are new to BDA swim team and enroll for any session without a try-out or permission from the Swim Team Director, your enrollment selections will be deleted until you have completed a try-out or received permission to enroll.
    BDA allows upward and downward changes  to the number of practices selected (such as moving from Up to 3 to Up to 5 practices or vice versa) as follows:
    • Any new enrollments or upward/downward changes for an upcoming month entered on or before the 20th of the previous month are billed at the lower monthly rate
    • New enrollments or upward changes submitted after the 20th of the previous month for the upcoming month are billed at the increased monthly rate
    • No downward changes for the upcoming month are allowed after the 20th of the previous month
    • No refunds or credits are issued for unused monthly practices nor do unused practices roll over into another month
    • BDA sends a reminder email each month, on or near the 15th, with applicable practice schedule information for the upcoming month as well as a reminder fo the 20th change deadline
