Training Fees

As well as the new squad structures, we are also implementing longer term planning for training fees to ensure the sustainability of the club. 

This will see a small annual increment being applied to training fees to ensure that increasing costs that the club incurs are being mitigated against. The strategy is to apply small annual increments, rather than higher increments over longer intervals. In addition to this, we are normalising fees across the squads to have a clear linkage between training hours and training fees. This will be implemented over a number of years to minimise large changes in one year. Therefore, some changes to training fees will be higher for some squads, than others - with some squad fees being frozen until this normalisation has completed.

Please also remember that there were no increases in training fees for the 2016/17 season.


Elite Squads

The following monthly training fees shall be applicable for the Elite Squads from 1st September 2017.

  • Senior Performance - £77.50

Competition Squads

The following monthly training fees shall be applicable for the Competition Squads from 1st September 2017. The fee structure is based around the number of training sessions that each individual would like to access. An initial estimate should be taken individually, with the club then monitoring this and informing swimmers if they are (on average) exceeding or under the number of sessions that are being paid for.

  • 2 Sessions - £27.50
