Avenger Parent Club

The Avenger Parent Club has been established to help manage several aspects of our team.  The goal of the club is to take various responsibilities off of our coaching staff and give our parents an opportunity to volunteer their time and share their gifts.  This will allow our coaches to focus on training, coaching, and developing our swimmers.  All Avenger parents are encouraged to volunteer. "Many hands make light work!"

Volunteer Co-Coordinators:  

Sara Keck - skeck.gcaquaticclub@gmail.com

Tamara Thetford

Our Volunteer Coordinators will be responsible for planning and coordinating events like holiday parties, team trips & get-to-gethers, our Avenger Award BBQ, and fundraisers.  They will be gathering volunteers to help make these events a success.  If you would like to offer up any services that you feel would benefit our team, please contact either Sara or Tamara.  They would be eager to talk with you.


The following area of expertise is presently needed:

Graphic Artist to help with designing 4 team t-shirts a year.  We are needing someone to create two team t-shirts and two championship t-shirts.  If you would like to share your artistic gift with our team, please contact Coach Paul and/or Coach Jamie for details.

USA Officials - We are always looking for parents to train to become USA Officials to help officiate swim meets.   Enforcement of the rules of swimming is very important to the training and success of swimmers.   All of the USA Swimming Officials are volunteer parents.  Training will be provided through Ozak Swimming.  Please contact Coach Paul for details

Payments, Billing, and Invoicing... Oh My!!!

There are many different ways for you to pay your coaching fees, swim meet fees, and other fees due during the swim year. Here are just some of the options we offer.

Coaching Fees – Coaching fees can be paid in full at the beginning of the season, on the 40/30/30 plan where 40% is due on September 1st, 30% is due on November 1st, and the remaining 30% is due February 1st or you can pay monthly.

Swim Meet Fees – We do not determine the price for swim meet fees. Fees are set by the hosting team and must be paid on time. The hosting team sets a deadline when our fees are due. Failure to pay your meet fees may possibly cause the entire team to be refused entry into the swim meet.

USA Swimming membership fees

Returning member fees are due by November 1st.
New member fees are due by September 15th.
Both memberships will be good until December 31, 2020.

Payments can be made in the following ways:

By Check/Cash – Checks can be made payable to Gateway City Aquatic Club or GCAC. Cash should be placed in an envelope and clearly marked with your swimmers name and what the amount is for. Checks and Cash should be placed in the blue zipper pouch which is on the pool deck table each practice.

Credit/Debit Card – Credit and debit cards can be used to pay all fees. See Coach Paul in order to do so using the Square card reader. A 3% fee will be added to your payment for this convenience.

By PayPal – Invoices can be emailed to you via Paypal and you may pay the invoice online. There will be a 3% fee added to your payment for this convenience.

By Automatic Withdrawal –  Coaching fees may be paid by automatic withdrawal from your checking account.  Forms to do so can be obtained from Coach Paul. 

Contract payments are expected to be paid in full. 

ALL FEES MUST BE PAID BY THE DATE REQUESTED. ANY FEES PAID LATE WILL BE SUBJECT TO A 10% LATE FEE.
