Membership – Current Season
Membership fees are determined by the Menai Swim Club Board of Directors, and apply for the swimming season – 1st October to 30th September – and are not currently offered on a pro-rata basis. For members that join under the either the Swimmer 9 & Over or Swimmer 8 & Under categories, included in your initial membership fee is a Menai Swim Club, Team Swim Cap and T-Shirt, and these will be provided to you once your membership has been approved by the Club Registrar.
For swimmers that are under the age of 18, a Parent is required to also join the club.
From the 2019-20 season, there is no longer Free Membership available for swimmers aged 7 & Under. This is NOT a decision of Menai Swim Club, but is a result of Swimming Australia losing the sponsorship of Optus, which provided the funding for these young swimmers.
The affiliation fees for Swimming Metro South East, Swimming NSW and Swimming Australia are included in your membership fee paid to Menai Swim Club.
For the 2019-20 season, the following categories of membership are available:
|Membership Category||Fee Payable|
|Swimmer 8 Years and Under||$80.00|
|Swimmer 9 Years & Over||$105.00|
In early September each year, the Menai Swim Club Registrar will contact you to advise that it is time to renew your membership of the club, in the form of an email from Swimming Australia. If there are changes that you wish to make to your membership then please contact the Club Registrar – email@example.com. Do not pay for your membership until the changes have been made and confirmed to you by the Registrar.
A strict “NO REFUNDS” policy applies to all swimming associations and clubs.
To ensure the continuity of your membership and to access online meet entries, it is imperative that you renew your membership once you have been advised, prior to 30th September.
If you are an active member of another Swim Club and would like to transfer over to Menai Swim Club, please contact our Head Coach – firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this.
