2. The risk of injury to my child(ren)/ward(s) from participation in WHALe events and activities is significant, including the potential for permanent disability and death, and while particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk for serious injury does exist; and,

Non Resident Fee

Families that do not live in Long Meadow Farms must pay a non-resident fee of $35.00 per family. This fee is to support the use of the LMF facilities, which residents pay as part of their HOA dues.  

Volunteer Requirements and Volunteer Encouragement Conditional Payment

Volunteering is required for all families and is essential to the success of our team. If your child swims in a meet, a member of your family (adult) must volunteer. We have lots of positions, and there is something for everyone. We cannot run meets without you - if you fail to meet your volunteer obligations (50 points) by the end of the season there is a mandatory fine of $250.

A $250 payment authorization is obtained at the time of registration (this does not place a hold on your credit card).   If your family meets your volunteer requirements, your card will not be charged.  If you do not meet your volunteer requirements your card will be charged and you may be asked not to return to the team in subsequent years. You will be notified prior to charging your card.
