Club Fees

YDSC Swim Squad fees commencing January 2018

Please note that fees are reviewed in November each year for the following January.  

Annual Subscription

Swim England is the English national governing body for swimming, diving, water polo, open water and synchronised swimming. It organises competitions throughout England, establishes the laws of the sport and operates certification and education programmes for teachers, coaches and officials as well the Learn To Swim Awards scheme. All swimmers who are learning to swim or enter National, District, County or Local Association Championships or Competitions, Open Meets or Swimming Leagues must register with Swim England before they compete. For competitions of this type you will need a Swim England number for your entry form.

There are three categories of membership and all YDSC swimmers have to be Swim England members.

Part of the annual membership fee is paid over to Swim England to cover the swimmers membership and registration. This payment is due annually by the 1st January for each swimmer and is a seperate fee to the monthly direct debit.

Annual fees are:

  • The Annual Subscription for all squad swimmers aged 9 and above as at 31/12/2017 is £53.00 per member.  Aged 9 or below, or non-competitive swimmers are eligible for a reduced fee of £33.00.
  • If a swimmer has his/her primary registration with another club, there will be a reduced Annual Subscritption payable to YDSC of £20.00 per member
  • PLEASE NOTE:  If you choose to pay after 31st December, then an admin charge of £5.00 per member will be applied to the above fees.

Where the membership fee has not been received by 1st January 2018 the membership will have lapsed and, as the swimmer will no longer be covered by our insurance, they will not be permitted to swim until the membership fee has been received

Monthly Fees

The monthly fees are dependant on the swim squad that your child is in. Your child will have access to the sessions for this squad or group. You will be informed of the changes in fees when your child moves from squad to squad.
