Competitive swimmer fee
Academy members interested in participating in competitive swimming can join the M1 Swimming Club online at anytime. Throughout the swimming season, swimmers attend approximately between 20 to 80 hours at swim meets at which our coaches are in attendance. To support the cost of providing coaching staff at nominated swim meets, an annual competitive swimmer levy applies to each squad family who is registered with Swimming Victoria & M1 Swimming Club. . For M1 Swimming club members within our program, a fee of $160 per family will be debited on September 15th or once a member joins during the season.

Parents ResponsibilityThe Academy of Swimming is not responsible for members outside class times.

Flexible TimetableMembers are reminded that you are not locked into the same session each week. Standard training times, days, pools and locations may vary from time to time, particularly on public holidays where we don’t hold training and during school holidays when we hold training of a morning due to pool availability.

Public Holidays
Our program does not operate on public holidays throughout the year.

Ongoing Enrolment
Your child is enrolled in our program on an ongoing basis with no need to rebook.

Fee Adjustment
Participation in the squad system is considered to be an annual involvement; therefore the same monthly fee is payable for all 12 months of the year. Fees will be charged regardless of a swimmers attendance and for prolonged absences of more than 3 weeks members are required to fill in a fee adjustment form.

Stop Training PolicyIn order to offer you the convenience of our flexible program, we require notice by the 15th of the month with a completed “stop training form” via email to contact@academyofswimming.com.au if you wish to take a break or stop for the following month. If we receive a “stop training form” after the 15th of the month, the upcoming direct debit will take place and the swimmer is able to swim for the month covered by your final payment. Please note that no refunds will be provided.
