New $2.00 ‘Extra Swim’ fee to be introduced in time for Term 1 Programs

Aquatic programs fees are established to cover the cost of program entry only, not general entry as well. If participants wish to swim outside of their lessons, they are required to either have a membership or pay general entry.

At the commencement of Term 1 Aquatic Programs in February, we plan to introduce a new $2.00 ‘extra swim’ fee for swimmers on their enrolled day and time as opposed to paying the full amount for general entry on top of their program fees. This will not apply to current members or participants when swimmers only attend their program (no extra swim)

Any feedback on the proposed changes can be emailed to
