Monthly swim fees cover the cost of pool hire and the club's general outgoings, calculated as follows:

  • A 'Family Fee', which is levied to cover the cost of registering officials (timekeepers, etc). This is currently £2 a month per family, regardless of the number of swimmers with the club. Please remember to include this amount on to your monthly membership when calculating your overall monthly fee.
  • A 'Squad Fee', which covers the pool lane hire and varies per squad, depending on the amount of training time required:
Squad Squad fee
Pups and Pre-Pups £20
Seals £27
Sharks £43
