We regret to advise that we are forced to increase the Club Fees with effect from the 1st of September 2015, agreed at the AGM held on 24th June 2015.
The increase is caused by a number of factors but primarily due to a non-negotiable increase of our pool hire costs. We have tried to have an even increase across all groups
The Committee has decided to amalgamate the two Masters Squads into just “Masters” from 1st September 2015. Hence all Masters swimmers will have to pay the same fee as they all have the same training time.
Please, can all those with STANDING ORDERS arrange to change these in line with the appropriate NEW FEE before the 1st of September.
In January 2016 all swimmers will have to contribute towards the ASA Membership Fees. Swimmers in Teaching Pool will have to pay £10 and swimmers in the Main Pool will have to pay £20. These Fees will be collected annually.
The Club Committee would very much like to thank you for your continuing support and participation, and trust that you will understand our position in this matter.
||FEE||10% OFF (for 3 or more swimmers in family)|
|TP 1 to 4||£21||£18.90|
|Development 1& 2||£24||£21.60|
The new fee structure can be found on the Fees Page.
From Tuesday 1 September 2015 there will be a new training timetable for the main pool. This is to accommodate the growing number of swimmers in the Junior and Development squads. Unless you are advised otherwise, all swimmers will remain in their current squad.
As a result of the new timetable there will now be a single Masters squad which will train (normally) across four lanes and all Masters are now subject to the same fee because they all have the same amount of training time. We apologise for the increase that previous Masters 1 swimmers will experience, but hope you understand you will be getting more pool time and that as a Club we need to accommodate the growing number of younger swimmers.
If you haven't already amended your direct debit to reflect the new training fees from 1 September, please do so as this would help us greatly.
I am sure you will all be thrilled to hear that Helen Thornhill has been selected to represent England, in the Mountain Running International Youth Cup, in Bulgaria later this month. Helen was selected after a number of recent amazing runs in fell race/mountain races throughout the country. Helen who swims in Club 3 and who regularly coaches Masters groups at the club, should be an inspiration to you all. I and no doubt all of you, wish her good luck in her International Debut.

Please note that if swimmers do not complete the session the coach/teacher or helper has set them, they will be asked to get out of the session. Swimming club is not to place to undergo your own sessions, if you don’t wish to do the session, please leave and pay to use the public sessions. At no point are any swimmers masters or children to disobey club coaches and helpers.
On Sunday MAD attended Eckington open meet, we had a brilliant day, with bags of medals, trophies and personal best swims, the gala was aimed at the majority of the club. There were no cut off times and no restrictions except for age. The best thing for us really was to see the younger end of the club attending Open meets, it builds so much experience and competitive sprit, that training or home galas can’t replicate.
