Membership Information

The club is a ‘not for profit’ organisation and has a constitution and a committee to oversee how it runs. All fully paid up members are invited to the AGM with those over the age of 16 being allowed to vote.

Membership and Fees

Club membership is 1st January to 31st December in any given year. You will be required to complete a membership registration renewal on an annual basis via your online member account (every January). The annual fee that you will be asked to pay has been determined by the committee and this includes all national Swim England (formerly the Amateur Swimming Association), Regional and County ASA affiliation fees. You are asked to complete your annual registration and with payment as soon as possible as the Clubs Secretary has to complete an Annual Membership return to the governing body: Swim England. Then, there are monthly squad fees to pay and these fees are based upon what squad you have been assigned to.

Fees are based on the swimmer's training all year round, with the exception of public holidays (Easter/Bank Holidays)  and between the Christmas/New Year period. There will be reduced sessions during the summer holidays as this is the end of the competitive season and this allows swimmers and staff alike to refresh after a long season. The competitive season pretty much mirrors the academic year (September to August in any given year). A period of one month's written & paid notice is required by the club, if you decide to leave.

Please keep your club account details up to date with your current email address, so that we can communicate electronically. This saves a huge amount on administration costs.
