ACADEMY

Academy groups are swimming lessons of 30 or 60 minutes. Fees are as follows:

  • Monthly fees as per the schedule below
  • Annual membership fee payable on joining of £10, which runs to July.
  • Swim England annual fee. We register the swimmer as Swim England Category 1 and the fee for Jan to Dec 2021 is £16.70. The club pays Swim England and that amount is recouped from the member. Annual collection of Swim England fees for existing members occurs on 1st February each year. If a member joins late in the calendar year (November or December), Swim England usually provide a reduced fee to the end of December. Please note that there were no Swim England registrations for Academy swimmers in January 2021 since there were no sessions running so the fee will be charged on joining in 2021 and again in February 2022. You would not be charged twice in the same calendar year.

Fee schedule:

30 mins £44/month excluding August
60 mins  £52/month excluding August

The club trains throughout the year, including half terms and holidays but at Christmas the junior squads (Bronze and below) take a 2 week break and the whole club takes a break in August. 

Squad fees are calculated on a 12-month basis and so are payable each month throughout the year (including August). 

PAYMENT METHOD

All monthly fees are collected via credit card on the 1st of the month. Fees for galas and club kit will be added to your account and collected on the 1st of the following month. You can review your account at any time by logging in (once you have been assigned a group/squad and enrolled by the adminstrator).

TERMINATION OF MEMBERSHIP

We require 30 days notice of termination of your membership. You will not be charged more than one months squad fees from the date of notification. If you stop your payment method with fees owing to the club, you may be prevented from returning at a future date.
