Becoming a member at Brockworth costs just £25 for a whole year or £40 for a joint membership for two. If there are more than two of you, simply add £10 for each additional swimmer onto the price for joint membership e.g. 4 members would be £60. Membership lasts for an entire swimming season (September to August), and is paid in September for existing members or when you first join the club as a new member.
The amount you pay for your training depends on how many sessions you attend per month, and which squad you are placed in. After your water test session, you will be placed in one of the squads by our coaches, depending on your ability. You will end up training with other swimmers at the same level as you, so you won't be alone!
The 4 squads are named as follows:
- Swim Development
Upon joining your squad in the Club you will receive a guide to the squad you have been placed in, which will detail its training times, fees and information on any competitions which may be available.
Training sessions are charged depending on the number of sessions swum, but to encourage people to swim more often to improve their swimming further, there are generous discounts available. The monthly fees, based on the number of sessions swum each week are as follows.
- 3 sessions per week - £75 per month
- 4 or more sessions per week - £80 per month
Juniors, Swimfit, Swim Development & Pre Swim:
- 2 sessions per week - £52 per month
- 3 sessions per week - £70 per month
- 4 sessions per week - £75 per month
Training fees are paid monthly by electronic bank transfer, arranged by our Club Treasurer.
Finally, there's ASA fees. The ASA Category 2 membership costs around £30 and lasts for a swimming year (January to December). This is usually arranged towards the beginning of the season, and is administered through the club. ASA membership is mandatory for insurance purposes and is essential if you wish to compete in the full range of swimming competitions, such as the County Championships, South-West Regional Championships or British National Championships including team competitions. Certain open meets may also need ASA membership.
