Fees go towards payment of expenses e.g. pool hire and are calculated over a twelve month period taking into account sessions ‘lost’ due to pool closures.
The club regrets that it is unable to refund any session(s) that a swimmer is unable to attend. There will be no concession for absence due to holidays regardless of the length.
If a squad member is away for more than four weeks due to injury, ‘serious’ illness or other special circumstances then the parent or guardian may write to the Club asking that squad fees be waived for that period. The request will be considered at the next committee meeting. No immediate decision will be given.
