Fees

Information on the various fees associated with club membership

Membership Requirements
To be a member of the club it is a prerequisite that you are a Swimming SA member.  Swimming SA memberships fall due in October each year, and incur a membership fee that is distributed between Swimming Australia, Swimming SA and the Onkaparinga Swimming Club. If you are new to the club, it is recommended that you talk to Pat or a Committee Member for assistance through the Swimming SA registration process. All existing club members will automatically receive an invitation to renew their Swimming SA membership each year.

Adelaide Hills Swimming Centre Entry Fees (Summer Only)
One of the highlights for our swimmers is using the terrific facilities at the Adelaide Hills Swimming Centre at Woodside during the Summer period. Swimmers need to pay an entry fee to use the Adelaide Hills Swimming Centre, which is a reduced fee negotiated for our club members.  For the 2015/16 season the entry fees are:

Note that the Adelaide Hills Swimming Centre does not have EFTPOS facilities.  Please bring cash or see Nick at the pool to arrange Direct Debit. The hot showers at the outdoor pool are coin operated at a cost of 50 cents per shower.  So start collecting your 50c coins.

Fundraising
Onkaparinga Swimming Club works tirelessly to keep our fees as low as possible.  There are substantial costs in running a swimming club, and we have seen large increases over the past couple of years in pool hire fees, in particular. In order to help the club meet its financial commitments, the club runs a number of fundraising activities throughout the year.  Every club member is expected to support the club in fundraising activity through sale of lottery tickets, attendance at events and other activities. The club may choose to charge a levy to families who elect not to participate in fundraising activity.
