The Board recently completed its review of the Club’s membership fees for the 2017/18 season, which were approved at the Club's AGM.
The Club's membership fee schedule for the 2017/18 season can be found here.
This season we are looking to better align our fee structure to specific membership categories rather than basing them only on the number of participating family members. We are however retaining our discount structure for larger families and have also implemented a fee reduction and rebate scheme for those Members who seek and maintain lifesaving awards and for those who patrol the required minimum number of patrol hours in the prior season. The Director of Life Saving will determine the required minimum number of patrol hours prior to each season, based on factors such as the number of patrols; required hours on the beach; and our commitments to SLSWA and the Town of Cambridge.
The minimum number of patrol hours required for the 2016/17 season was 32 hours. The minimum number of patrol hours required for the 2017/18 season is 31 hours. Entitlement to the fee rebate is based on your completion of the minimum number of patrol hours in the prior season. The Club Registrar will ensure that those members entitled to receive the rebate off their fees for this year have their fee schedule adjusted prior to payments being processed.
The rebate structure applies to both membership and gym fees. Please note that the Club has now removed the initial subsidy on gym membership for patrol members. Gym fees however remain heavily discounted for active Club Members (and as above an additional rebate will apply for those gym users who seek and retain lifesaving awards and who patrolled the minimum required hours in the prior season). Our objective remains to ensure both a competitive and fair benefit is available to Club Members whilst ensuring the sustainability of the facility and the ability to replace and upgrade equipment as required.
The Club’s standard Membership Year will continue to run from 1 September to 31 August (Associate Gym membership periods may vary). Membership fees are due and payable with registration. Outstanding fees must be fully settled within one (1) month of registrations being lodged.
