Membership Fees

As a swimmer of the Monbulk Marlins Swimming Club there are 3 different fees that you are required to pay:

Annual Swimming Victoria Registration fee

After completing the 2 week free trial, swimmers must become registered members with Swimming Victoria before they can join Monbulk Marlins Swimming Club.

The Swimming Victoria membership fees listed below cover Club registration, Swimming Victoria registration, affiliation to District, State and National associations and, most importantly, insurance cover for swimmers, club coaches, officials and volunteers.

Age GroupYearly Fee
Junior Swimmer (8/under)$137.00
Swimmer (9-15 years)$148.00
Dry Member$15.00

The swimming year runs from 1 July to 30 June. These membership fees are due by all members at the commencement of each new swimming year or are payable immediately when joining the club as a new member.

The club and/or Swimming Victoria will advise existing members how to pay these fees shortly before each new swimming year.

Membership fees are payable immediately on joining the club by following our Enrolment Process.

A pro-rated fee is applicable if joining between April and June, although this is subject to change.

Squad Fees

Note:

  • There is a 10% Family Discount for families with 3 or more swimmers in the club.
  • Families with a Health Care Card or Pension Card can apply for a low-income discount of 10%

Pool Entry

We receive a discount on the standard pool entry charge which is set by the Pool Management “Belgravia” and pays for our use of lane space. A swim pass specific to the Marlins must be purchased to obtain the discounted rate. This pass costs $54 and allows you to scan in for 20 visits at a cost of $2.70 per visit. If you do not purchase the pass you will be charged the standard entry fee as Belgravia cannot process individual entries at the Marlins rate. Enquire at reception for further details.

Suspension of Payments

Suspension of Payments will require a medical certificate or explanation of extenuating circumstances and will only be applied when the absence is for a period of four or more consecutive weeks. Notification shall be provided in writing to the committee. No refunds will be given for disciplinary suspension.
