Pay for upcoming session as planned $450 on May 1st* and receive $100 per athlete in tournament credit to use in the upcoming fall and winter sessions**
Even Though we will not be entering the pool on May 1st, we will continue providing virtual training and assignments to keep the kids engaged physically and mentally. This is also to keep them in contact with their friends and teammates so we are on the same page and ready when we come back. In addition, we will look to make up the month of May in the pool by extending the summer session until mid August since JOs have been postponed.
*Summer session for this year will last from May 1- August 15. If no payment for the session is made on May 1st, there will be a quarterly charge for the summer session when we are back to the pool, most likely the beginning of June.
**Does not include JO or travel tournament fees. There will be a limit of 15 credits per tournament signup period. If not used in those sessions, it will be valid for 1 year.
***To opt in to this payment option, please contact Coach Duje & our Admin Nacinda through email at: email@example.com

This option involves Coach Duje’s partnership with Clear Sun, where he worked as a financial analyst and helped build financial models for tax equity investments into renewable energy properties, movie tax credits, and R&D tax credit strategies for almost 5 years.
These tax investment strategies resulted in LOWERING OR ELIMINATING tax liability for all of our investors. In addition, these investments resulted in the creation of jobs for the areas where the investment went, including many of the “Opportunity zone” areas in California.
Now there is an additional benefit and that is to help Patriot Aquatics. Clear Sun is looking to donate a percentage of each deal that they make with someone who is associated with Patriot Aquatics. In addition, the investor will be able to make additional charitable donations to Patriot or any other non-profit, instead of making a payment to the IRS, as they will have more cash on hand. The charitable donation will result in an additional deduction on the tax return and further tax savings.
The beauty of some of these tax equity investments is that they have a 5-year carry-back option, meaning you can go back and get a REFUND for all taxes paid in those years.
Since this option is more complex, it requires your CPA and/or your financial planner to sit down with Attorney and President of Clear Sun Power Kent Salveson, so he can take you through the full details of the deal.
THIS OPTION WILL HELP YOU, YOUR FAMILY, PATRIOT AQUATICS AND THE COMMUNITY FOR MANY YEARS, AS YOU CAN ENGAGE IN THESE TYPES OF INVESTMENTS EVERY YEAR UNTIL THE PROGRAMS LAST. MANY PROGRAMS WERE EXTENDED OR MODIFIED TO ENCOURAGE MORE INVESTMENTS INTO THE ECONOMY IN THE UPCOMING MONTHS.
IF YOU, OR ANYONE THAT YOU KNOW HAS A TAX LIABILITY THAT THEY ARE LOOKING TO LOWER OR ELIMINATE, AND WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS OPTION AND PROGRAM PLEASE EMAIL DUJE at: firstname.lastname@example.org
