ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT BILLING INFORMATION - PLEASE READ
PAC is a year-round swim club. Assessed annual PAC Dues are divided into 8 equal payments billed October 1st through May 1st for those registered prior to October 1st. Members registering October 1st through December 31st will pay assessed annual dues in 8 installments from time of start (e.g. Dec 1st - July 1st). Those joining after January 1st will pay annual dues through August 1st at 8 installment rate. Payments must be received by the 15th of the month. A $25 late fee is assessed for all accounts with outstanding payments at the end of each month.
PAC does not waive dues for unforeseen circumstances including facility closure or unexpected practice cancellation – however PAC will make every effort to work with Portland Parks and Recreation and the community to find alternative options when necessary. Athlete leave of absence is only granted to those with medical reasons or traumatic life event. Athletes withdrawing from the program must inform their coach and are responsible for closing out accounts with our account administrator - covering pro-rated fundraising and service hour commitments and any outstanding meet or miscellaneous fees. Space will be offered to those on the waiting list. If at a future date within the same season the athlete choses to re-join PAC, the registration fee and all other applicable charges will be billed again.
PAC ELLERTSON FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP FUND: Applications for registration fee and dues assistance are available on a case by case basis from the PAC Ellertson Family Scholarship Fund. To apply: You must register for PAC and also complete an application for scholarship. Be sure to talk to your coach so they are aware you are submitting an application. Fill out the online application at swimpac.org under the "About Tab/Scholarships". Scholarships are granted and families notified prior to the first dues billing Oct. 1st. If you have applied for registration fee assistance please select the pay by check option to complete your registration. Families receiving dues scholarships are automatically billed over 10 months (rather than 8) to lower monthly burden. In addition families receiving dues scholarships are able to interchange service and fundraising commitment requirements.
Please Note that Due to the high cost of credit card processing fees PAC recommends ACH as a “no cost to you” preferred option for monthly dues.
ACH is not an option during registration. Credit card payment for registration is preferred and the processing fee will be billed to the transaction. If the fee is an undo burden please select "pay by check" option in the registration module and promptly place a check in the mail (PAC, 1824 N Alberta St. Portland, OR 97217). Registration Checks must be received within 7 days of registration or registration will be declined and swimmer will not be eligible to practice. (Exceptions granted for those who have applied for registration assistance through the Ellertson Family Scholarship Fund).
To sign up for ACH for all future monthly billings at "no cost to you" please do the following after registration has been processed: My Account > Set Up Auto Pay > Payment Set Up > add bank account. Note: ACH is processed the first of every month.
Credit Card payment with fee of 2.95% and $0.30 per transaction will be maintained as a convenience option for those who prefer for monthly payments and for on demand payments.
