We are always looking for new swimmers and it couldn't be easier to join the club. Swimmers wishing to join will need to attend a trial to enable us to make sure they are attending the correct sessions. Trials normally take place on a Tuesday evening at Cheam starting at 7pm. If you cannot attend a trial on Tuesday then it may be possible to attend on another evening. Please contact the club first to arrange a trial. Full details on the contact us page.
The annual membership for Cheam Marcuda Swimming Club is £50 per year, payable in January. This includes ASA, London Region fees and also your membership. There is a reduction of £5 per sibling (up to a maximum of 3 siblings) off these fees.
For Category 2 swimmers (entries to competitive galas) this is increased by £10.
For swimmers who are over 16 years an annual membership of £12.50 is payable. The club has decided to charge a lower fee for these older members in an effort to retain members at an age when many leave the sport. It is also in recognition of the assistance pool side that those who remain give the club.
For swimmers in the teaching pool the fee is waived.
Monthly fees are payable on the 1st of each month and must be paid by standing order.
Download a standing order request form which provides all the information required for online banking or alternatively you can print out and take the form to your bank for them to set up the standing order. Please ask your bank to put your child's name as a reference on the payment.
Depending on how many training sessions you attend monthly fees are:
The cost of being a member of the club is worked out over the whole of the year (excluding August) and converted into a monthly payment. This takes into account the sessions we don't swim over the Christmas and at Easter. This figure is then divided by 11 months and this is the monthly amount to be paid by standing order.
You should either set your standing order up to pay Jan-July and September - December, or Jan - November so that only 11 payments are made each year.
August sessions attended should be paid for individually at £5 per session on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Pool hire has to be paid in advance so it is very important for us to collect swim fees as early as possible each month.
The calculator is only an indication of the membership fees, the final price will be communicated to you by email and might be different from what is displayed here.
