Club Fees & Charges 2019/20

This document puts together in one place the fees and charges you will need to pay as a member of

the Geelong Swimming Club from July 1, 2019. The three parts are, Swimming Victoria

membership fees which are levied yearly, Club training fees paid monthly via Ezidebit and Council

pool entry fees.


The Swimming Victoria membership fees are amongst the lowest in the sport because our club

only levies a small portion from members which is then rebated to us from Swim Vic.


Club training fees are subsidised heavily by our Sponsors JP Flynn and Frank Costa and it is timely

to remind members that the club has produced a slight deficit over the last two financial years

because of keeping fees to an absolute minimum.


1/ Membership fees (paid to Swim Vic)

due July 1 this year are as follows:


Please Note:

  • All swimmers under 16 years of age need an accompanying adult or guardian to become a Dry Member of Swim Victoria as per our Bye Laws. This gives every swimmer a say at committee level.
  • Swim Vic will send you a payment link when due.



2/ Training Fees (Paid to the Club)


Please Note:

  • Payments will be deducted on the 15th of each month via Ezidebit.
