The club is run on a "not for profit" basis with fees set to cover the costs of running the club. With the exception of the Head Coach and Mini squad Coach, the club is run by un-paid volunteers and the fees collected are used in the main to pay for the hire of the swimming pool at the Kings Centre and at Ardingly School.
There are three elements to the fees:-
- Joining Fee
- ASA Membership Fee
- Squad Fee
Any new member joining the Club will need to pay a joining fee of £25 or £43 depending on squad.
ASA Membership Fee
All club swimmers must register with the ASA in order to be personally insured whilst swimming. Renewal notifications are sent out from the club during January/February each year with ASA Renewal forms. ASA fees are manadatory and non payment by the deadline will prevent the child from swimming.
The ASA have two categories:-
|Category 1||(£14 per year)||This category is for non-competitive swimmers aged 9 years and under|
|Category 2||(£32.50 per year)||This category is for all competitive swimmers. Anyone in Mini, Bronze or Senior squad aged 9+ will be registered as Cat 2|
All ASA fees are forwarded directly to the ASA by the club.
ASA registration cards will then be issued to each swimmer with their individual number attached. This number is necessary to access British Swimming Rankings, etc. Please keep this card safe as these are issued only once on initial application.
These are dependent on which squad a swimmer is allocated and may change during the course of the year if the swimmer moves to a new squad. When a swimmer progresses to a new squad, they will be notified by email and will be expected to pay the new squad fee from the next calendar month. (Please ensure your standing order is altered to reflect this).
Squad fees are as follows:-
|£25 - £40 (subject to number of weekly sessions)|
