Summer Swimming Payment & Refund Policy

Swimming fees and volunteering deposits are all due and payable at the time of online registration. All payments must be made using our online payment system.

The following trial period and refund policies apply to our summer swimming sessions ONLY.

Requests for withdrawal must be made in writing to registrar@vancouvervikings.com.

Two-week Trial

A two-week trial period is available to new registrants (i.e. a swimmer who has not previously been a Viking) only, so that they can “try out” swimming with the Vikings with minimal financial risk. New registrants must register and pay the full registration fees. If after the first two weeks of practice, a new registrant decides that they do not want to continue with the Vikings, a refund of the all fees and deposits less $135 ($85 + $50 non-refundable BCSSA fee) will be granted. To withdraw, contact our club registrar no later than May 15 by email to request a refund.

Refund of Fees

Other than the Two-week Trial, refunds will not be allowed unless the reason for discontinuing is the result of an injury or illness, and is supported by a written note from a physician. The amount to be refunded will be dictated by the date the request is received, in writing, by the Club President, Registrar, or Treasurer.

There will be no refund of the BCSSA portion of the registration fee.

The amount of the club fee refunded will be pro-rated as follows:

  • if the request is received before May 31, 75%
  • if received between May 31 and June 15, 50%
  • if received between June 15 and July 15, 25%
  • after July 15, there will be no refunds

Refund of Fundraising and Volunteering Deposits

Volunteering deposits provided at the time of registration will be refunded upon successful completion of required volunteer.  To read more about this, please visit our parents section here.

If advance deposit of the summer volunteering fees creates a financial hardship for your family, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator here before registering to discuss alternate payment arrangements regarding these amounts.
