Charging for land training

Each session will be charged at £3 per swimmer, and this will be on the basis that training is available, whether or not the swimmer is able to attend. If you do NOT want your child to take part in the land training programme please reply to the club, otherwise we will assume that your child wishes to take part and the land fees will be added to your monthly swimming bill. As there is a demand for land sessions non attendance or late arrival to more than 3 consecutive sessions without notification to the club may mean reallocation of a place.
