Swim England Fees 

Swim England fees are due annually in January (or on first joining) and form part of your membership – every swimmer (and non-swimmer member) pays to ensure they are covered by Swim England insurance to both train and/or compete.  All category charges are paid by the club directly to Swim England and include Yorkshire Swimming Association and Swim England North East Region fees.

Category 1 membership (included in club membership) is £15.30.

Category 2 membership is £18.55 extra (i.e. total payable is £118.55) and this is only for open meet swimmers (required to swim in licensed galas). 

Category 3 membership is £10.70 for associates (volunteers are not charged and their fee is paid for by the club).

Payment of Gala/Meet Entry Fees

All payments for entry to galas/meets are to be paid to the front desk on club nights before entry deadlines in order for entries to be made.  Entries are not confirmed unless the event organiser accepts the entry and full payment in advance has been made.

Once an entry submission has been made you are committed to pay for your entries. In the event of withdrawal it may not be possible to cancel your commitment to pay.  These are normal gala entry terms and refunds are made only at the discretion of the event organisers.

Payment of Session Fees

Session fees are due monthly on the 1st of each month.  All members are attached to a squad by the coaching team:

There are 11 monthly payments excluding August.

Club Transfers To Kingfishers

If you are transferring from another Swim England affiliated club to Kingfishers, Swim England need you to document the resignation from your old club so Kingfishers can become responsible for your Swim England Fees at next renewal – and you will then swim in Kingfishers name where an affiliation and insurance are required.  If you have paid Swim England fees this year, no further payment is requested on transfer – except if the Category of membership changes e.g. from Cat 1 to Cat 2 in order to access licensed meets etc.
