Change to Seniors/club gym

Please note a training timetable change.

From Wednesday 7th November, seniors and club squad will now have their gym session on a Wednesday at 6.30pm.

Performance will continue to have their gym session on a Friday at 4.15pm.

Welcome to the Club!

Next week we will be welcoming the latest batch of Sharks who have just completed their Stage 6 and 7 courses in Dolphins – well done to you all!

At this standard, you will need to join Boston Amateur Swimming Club. There is a annual membership fee, currently £25, which covers registration and insurance with the national governing body, Swim England.

Sharks meet four times a week in the Geoff Moulder Training Pool:

  • Tuesday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Thursday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Friday 4.30pm until 5.30pm
  • Saturday 8.30am until 9.30am

All of these sessions are available to you, and you don’t need to book in advance.

As well as the joining fee, each squad has a monthly fee. Currently, for Sharks, this is £28. We prefer if this is paid by Standing Order (forms are available from the Coaching Staff), but can be paid by Cash or Cheque – if this is the case please put in a sealed envelope clearly marking the swimmers name.  You can also set up a standing order through online banking if you have that facility, for details of this please email the Treasurer on bostonswimmingclubweb@gmail.com

For new Sharks, providing you have joined the Club, you can start training with us on Tuesday 23rd October 2018. We look forward to seeing you then!

2018/19 season starts on Saturday!

We hope you are all having a lovely summer break – Just a reminder that training restarts on Saturday 1st September 2018!

Annual Club membership for the 2018/19 season of £25 is also due in September – this charge is applicable to any swimmer in Sharks squad upwards, including Masters, on September 1st.

Finally, all squad fees paid by Standing Order need to be paid in August as fees are calculated over 12 months. If, for whatever reason, you have not paid these fees in August you will be asked to pay this shortfall on return to training in September or the balance of the more expensive squad fees if paid by cheque/cash over 11 months.

For more details please email the Treasurer on bostonswimmingclubweb@gmail.com

See you all on Saturday!
