There are two elements to the fees

1. Annual Membership

This covers SwimEngland registration, insurance and general club administration. The annual membership is due each January or when a member joins the club (memberships fees are not pro-rata'd) and are based on the squad and whether the swimmer is competitive (i.e enters licenced galas) as shown in the following table. 

* If a swimmer pays a non-competitive membership fee and then starts to compete in galas (including M11 galas) during the course of the year the difference needs to be paid to upgrade to competitive.

2. Swimming Fees

These principally cover the cost of the coaches and pool time and varies depending on the squad and the number of times you swim. The fees are paid each term, either in monthly instalments (paid on the 1st of each month), which spreads the term costs out over 4 months or as a single payment (paid in the first month of term) as shown in the following table

Payment Methods

Online payment via your bank account is our preferred method of payment, as you are totally in control and it is fully traceable. Either spread the term fees over 4 months by setting up a monthly Standing Order paid on the 1st of each month (i.e. Spring is 1st January, February, March & April) or a single payment to cover the whole term in the first month of term

Please ensure the payee ref for any online payments reflects what the payment is for i.e. one of following: Fees or Gala or as advised if a special payment. Note some online bank accounts do not allow the payee ref to be changed. If that is the case with your bank please set up a new and separate payment for each payee ref needed and then use as appropriate. This is essential so payments do not get mixed up, which causes extra admin for the club and potentially cause you being chased for payments.

If online payments via your bank account is not an option for you, by exception we will accept cheques but we ask that you clearly state on the back of the cheque the swimmers name and what the payment is for. We do not accept cash, so please do not put the coaches in an awkward position by trying to give them cash.

Please be aware BPSC is a not for profit charitable organisation, run by volunteers with the only paid staff being the poolside coaches, therefore please help us keep admin to a minimum by paying promptly.
