Competitive swimmer fee
Throughout the swimming season, swimmers may attend approximately between 20 to 70 hours at swim meets at which our coaches are in attendance. To support the cost of providing coaching staff at nominated meets, an annual competitive levy of $180 applies to each squad family who is registered with Swimming Victoria / M1 Swimming Club for the current season. This payment will take place on September 14th 2018 or if joining after this date once a swimmer joins the M1 Swimming Club the $180 will added to your upcoming direct debit.
Note: Coaches from the Malvern Academy of Swimming and Glen Eira Academy of swimming will be in attendance at nominated meets subject to minimum number of swimmers entering. Coaches are not responsible for supervision of swimmers at swim meets. For team trips, the M1 Swimming Club will nominate team managers to supervise swimmers.
