MEMBERSHIP

Like any other physical activity, swimming is based on development levels and needs to be practiced and reinforced continually. As well as the health and safety benefits, participation in regular classes also enhances social, emotional, and physical well-being, and of course, it's lots of fun!

Membership Cost and Payment Information.

GENERAL INFO

As a swimming club, as opposed to a swim school, we can enrol kids once they are at a post - LTS level of proficiency. In our case means they can swim one unassisted length of the outdoor 33m pool in either Freestyle, Backstroke or Breaststroke.

The costs of membership are divided up into an annual registration and a monthly coaching fee. The annual registration is a flat $201.00, which covers the period from July 1st through June 30th the following year. This cost will be included in your June invoice and must be paid prior to the Swimming New Zealand New Year to ensure your swimmer’s registration is processed in time. The registration contributes to some of the club’s coaching costs and covers fees that are payable to our regional and national governing bodies – Swimming Bay of Plenty and Swimming New Zealand respectively. If you join after March then the registration fee is $120.00, which will register your swimmer through until July 1st of that same year. The registration fee is the same for all members (club or competitive).

 

Penguins’ swimmers are an exception to the registration fee – they pay only the monthly fee until they move up into the Kingfish squad, at which time they will need to pay the registration fee. Sailfish are swimmers who are non-competitive and do not attend SNZ meets.

The monthly fee primarily covers lane hire and coaching costs, and as such differs per squad. The table below outlines the current fee structure, note that this is subject to change – please double-check with our treasurer if you are unsure about anything fees related.

**We request one month's notice for departing swimmers.

Invoices are sent out via e-mail at the beginning of each month. Details regarding payment information - please email whakataneswimclub@gmail.com for more info.

POOL ACCESS AND SWIPE CARD INFORMATION

Once swimmers have returned their completed registration form, a swipecard will be created and made available for you to collect from reception as you enter the pool. 

 

Swimmers need to scan in at reception when here for morning training. Ideally this is done prior to training but this can also be done whilst exiting the facility post-training. If you are a new member, please check in with reception when next at the pool as they should have your swipecard waiting there for you (let me know if not).

 

For any misplaced cards, please see reception to organise a replacement – this incurs a $5 fee.
