Please be aware all our admin is done on a voluntary basis and to minimise this, we rely on families setting up Monthly Standing Orders or paying termly in the first month of each school term, to cover swimming fees.  We do not issue invoices or use the finance functionality in TU (due to it's high cost), we then follow up by exception.   

Please help and pay as outlined below in section 3.


1. Annual Membership Subs

An Annual Membership Subs is due each January or when a member joins the Club. These are not pro rata‘d and last to the 31st Dec regardless of when paid, a Swim England rule not ours!  The majority goes to Swim England for each members registration and insurance, and the remainder towards club admin.

Annual Fees are:

  • £20 for Learn to Swim
  • £30 for non-competitive swimmers (CAT1 - CLUB TRAIN)
  • £60 for competitive (CAT2 - CLUB COMPETE).

Where a non-competitive swimmer starts to compete in galas (including M11) the upgrade difference in cost of £30 (CAT1 to CAT2) needs to be paid.  Noting, like initial SE registration it lasts to the 31st Dec, even if upgrading in say Nov.


2. Swimming Fees - changes for 2023

Swimming Fees cover the cost of coaches and pool hire.
Both these have increased significantly since we last put up fees 18 months ago and our only source of income is from fees. 
We are a not-for-profit organisation and these changes are to ensure we break even.

Regular club fees shown below (from 1st Jan 2023) may be subject to change.

Squad Session(s) per week Monthly Standing Order OR Termly Payment
Learn to Swim 1 x 30-minute lesson £35 £140
Learn to Swim Twice or a double session per swimmer £55 £220
       
Competitive      
Development Once £30 £120
Development multi £45 £180
Junior multi £62 £248
Senior multi £72 £288
       
Active      
Active Once £30 £120
Active multi £41 £164
       
Adults & Masters Once £33 £132
Adults & Masters multi £45 £180

3. Paying

When paying termly the fees are due in the first month of the school term i.e. Jan, May and Sept.

When paying by monthly standing order, it is spreading the term cost over 4 months - requested to be paid on the 1st of each month to minimise our admin, which is all done on a voluntary basis.  

  Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec
Spring Term                
Summer Term         √*        
Autumn Term                

Learn to Swim swimmers - please note
 √*  a payment is due in August as paying monthly is just spreading the term cost over 4 months, there are no LTS swimming lessons during school holidays and August is just the final Summer payment.
-  we calculate fees based on running 11 sessions per term i.e. 33 a year.  But run as many as the school and school terms allow. This can     
   vary from 11 to 14 sessions a term.  We keep the costs the same per term, on the understanding that over the year any unexpected
   cancellations still mean we offer 33 sessions.  Generally, we run 35 sessions a year and consequently don't give refunds for cancelled   
   sessions, unless it drops below 33 a year. 
   Noting we are a not for profit charitable organisation and only paid staff are teachers and coaches.

 

Fees should be paid via electronic bank transfer into the BPSC CAF bank account:

  • Account Name: BPSC 
  • Sort Code: 40-52-40
  • Account Number: 00021918

Please start the payee ref. with ‘Fees’, followed by the swimmer’s surname, e.g.

Fees Smith
