New members pay a £10 joining fee, for which they get a CCSC hat and water bottle.
ASA membership (annual)
Each year every member also needs an annual Swim England membership. This is really important: it's part of the club's insurance, and anyone who doesn't have it is not insured. Swim England memberships are due at the time of joining and each January thereafter.
2018 Swim England fees are £35, or £20 if you become a member after October.
Squad fees (monthly)
These squad fees are an annual membership cost with payments amortised to a monthly fee. Members should expect a few cancelled sessions during each year due to pool closures, for planned competitions and over holiday periods – for example, during the school holidays the club operates on reduced hours, and the pool is closed for a period over Christmas. The annual fees take this into consideration, so there are no refunds for individual cancelled sessions.
If a swimmer is not able to attend all the sessions on offer, their squad fees cannot be reduced. There are limited places in each squad, and the club has to charge members for each space equally.
Squad fees are paid by monthly direct debit.
