    The lesson fees are paid each month to the Conroe Aquatic Center to cover facility use and pay the coach. The amount per month varies based on residence location (within city limits receives a lower rate) and number of lessons per week.

There is an online payment option, please see the Aquatic Center office for details.

    Membership Dues

    In order to practice and/or compete with the Conroe Diving Club, membership dues are required annually. These dues ensure the team is able to send coaches to competitions and provide updated equipment for practice as well as maintenance of current equipment.

    Competition Costs

    Meet Fees are required to register for each event. An event is the set of 5 to 10 dives on a particular board—1m or 3m, etc.—depending on the diver’s level and gender. These fees will be paid to the team hosting the meet via the divemeets.com or cleanentries.com websites and are approximately $30-50 per event. When first competing your diver may compete about once per month.

    Coaching Fees are paid directly to the coach and are usually $10-$20 per event.

    $15.00 per event for Regional & Zone Championships.

    $20.00 per event for National Championships.

    These fees are payment for your coach's services the day of the meet. Please give your coach the meet fees in an envelope with your child’s name on it the week before the meet.

    Sanction Fees are paid to be a member of the sanctioning body of our club and the meet(s) you plan to attend. In order to practice or compete with the Conroe Diving Club, all divers must register themselves with the Amateur Athletic Union. In order to compete at regional or national meets, Junior Olympic divers will need to register with USA Diving. These fees are paid once per year, around $20 for AAU and around $200 for USA Diving. These fees cover the insurance and the governance of your diver’s participation at meets.

    Travel Expenses for the coaches are covered by the fundraising activities of the team and spent as the Board approves and the budget allows. If there are not enough funds after the yearly sponsorship drive, then parents of divers participating in a meet will be required to cover the travel costs of the coach to the meet. Divers personal travel expenses are not covered by the club. As your diver progresses, he or she may participate in more out of town meets which will incur expenses for transportation and hotels.
