Become A Member of The West Coast
Who can become a member?
Membership of the Club is open to any swimmer who meets the minimum requirements to join the West Coast squads. An initial assessment is required by the coaching staff on the first visit. During this session technique and skills will be assessed to enable appropriate squad placement.
Parents of swimmers are encouraged to become noncompetitive (associate) members.
Recreational and competitive members may participate in Club Nights which
provides incentives for improvement. Competitive members may also participate
in competitions with swimmers from other Clubs. Many of these meets are held
at Challenge Stadium, while others are held at various locations including
Albany, Mandurah and interstate in the case of National competitions. Competitive
and recreational members as well as non-competitive members have insurance
coverage under a policy held by Swimming WA and are also entitled to discounted
pool entry at Challenge Stadium.
Membership registration fees comprise two components: a club registration fee and a capitation fee payable through the Club for registration with Swimming WA.
The fees are set by the Committee each year.
Family discounts apply to second and subsequent members of the same family.
If transferring from another Club, a transfer fee set by Swimming WA will apply and the capitation fee is not payable as long as the member paid their capitation for the current season.
All enquiries regarding membership should be directed to the Club Membership Registrar.
Application for club membership is made using the Registration Form. Forms are available for download online and from the Registrar and coaches.
Registration is taken from 1 July each year to June 30 the following year. Birth certificates or extracts must be sighted when new members register. Registration will be completed when the Committee has endorsed the application for membership and the Registrar has received payment of membership fees in full and the swimmer has been registered by Swimming WA.
