We are aware that not all swimmers may wish to swim at some or all available sessions for a variety of reasons, including health concerns (for example when a swimmer or family member is particularly vulnerable), and also for financial reasons. We are therefore adopting a revised fee structure, which is intended to cater for as many cases as possible, while also considering the financial position of the club and the need to cover costs to say afloat. Needless to say, our costs will quickly escalate back to their pre-lockdown levels.
Fees will therefore be split into two components:
- We will continue to charge the current 25% which covers our fixed costs other than pool time;
- Swimmers will then be charged on a per session basis, so will only charged for the pool time they use.
Please note that as places are limited and we do need to cover costs, any swimmer booking into a training session will be charged for that session regardless of attendance (cancellations can be made up to 24 hours before the session without incurring costs).
We continue to have discussions with EA regarding pool time and charges, so fees may well vary as time moves on and we have a better understanding of both costs and attendance.
