IMPORTANT NOTE: If a member regularly misses one of their sessions, on a given day, for 6 or more occurrences the club will seek to understand why and if necessary remove the member from that session. This is in the interest of making the best use of the lanes for all members. If you will not be attending sessions for a prolonged time due to injury or other aliments please contact the Club through Contact Us so we can discuss session fees etc.
Each swimmer is a member of a particular squad - Fundamental Training Skills Squad, Higher Training Skills Squad, Performance Training Squad or Masters.
CASC fees structure is based on membership of those 4 squads and each member is strongly encouraged to attend the maximum number of sessions available to their squad in order to optimize their progression within the Club.
When a member changes squads then the appropriate new monthly fee should be paid. Please contact the Treasurer if you have any queries relating to the correct fee payable.

Changing the Number of Sessions
Swimmers are encouraged to attend the maximum number of sessions available to their squad, see above. The fee structure is pay-by-squad so the more sessions you attend the more cost effective the fee. Any queries, please email the Treasurer

The vast majority of funds raised from membership fees and monthly standing orders is used to pay pool hire costs (>95%). Remaining funds are used for essential training, events, equipment etc. All coaches, poolside helpers and other club officials provide their time completely free of charge as unpaid volunteers.
