Membership for the 2017/18 Swimming Season commences from 1st October 2017 and finishes on 30th September 2018.
FIRST TIME MEMBERS
The process for joining Willoughby Swim Club is through the online system on the Swimming NSW website http://nsw.swimming.org.au/
The online process includes payment by credit card, with a transaction fee added (Swimming NSW sets these terms).
One parent from each family must join our club with their child so they are covered by insurance when volunteering with us.
For details about this and our other membership requirements on joining, please read Information Parents Must Know on the page ‘When You Join’.
To proceed to join us
At the top of the Swimming NSW home page click on the JOIN NOW! button.
SELECT as the Region: Metro North East
SELECT as the Club: Willoughby SC Inc
The membership category for a parent is the Non-Swimming Member. The fee is only $37. A good way to proceed is to start the membership process with the parent first and then proceed to your child’s membership.
Please note: Discounts apply where two or more children are joining up in the same family as Swimming Members at the same time. You will be able to select the family group package with the applicable number of children, and the relevant discount will be automatically applied. The discount will not be applied automatically in the system if a second or further child is joined separately or at a later date.
The final step is to advise our Registrar that you have joined online. Please email Mary Robertson on
firstname.lastname@example.org as new memberships need to be approved by the Club.
TRANSFERRING FROM ANOTHER CLUB
Our Registrar will need to facilitate you transferring from another club and you will need to contact the Registrar to start this process.
If a parent is also a member of the other club, and will also be the parent who joins Willoughby Swim Club (see Information Parents Must Know on the page ‘When You Join’) then that parent will also need to transfer to us.
The transfer process involves two steps. You will need to advise the registrar at Willoughby Swim Club via email that you wish to transfer to us, and we can then process this through the ClubLane system. You must also advise your current club that you wish to transfer, and they also have a step to complete in the ClubLane system. (This process can usually be done over the phone).
A transfer fee may be chargeable for a family transferring.
When you contact the Registrar, please advise the following details for all persons transferring in your family:
- Full name
- NSW Swimming Registration number
- Date of Birth
Please email the club Registrar Mary Robertson on email@example.com, or through the WSC contact page.
CURRENT MEMBER RENEWALS
Willoughby Swim Club sends current members a renewal email via Swimming Australia in September for the new swimming year that commences on 1 October. A link is embedded in the email to help make the renewal process easier.
For families, a single renewal notice will cover the parent (Non-swimmer ) member plus all current child (Swimmer) members.
To renew, a parent will need their User name and password login details at hand (allocated when you originally joined as a member). If you cannot locate this information then our Registrar will be able to assist.
If any aspect of your current membership will change, please first contact our Registrar directly before renewing. The membership record will need to be changed and the correct fees applied. Examples are if a child in a larger family group is not renewing, if a child is being added, and if you wish a member’s category to change e.g. U9 Club Night swimmer wishes to become a full swimming member while still aged 9/U.
IMPORTANT: When you click through the renewal email to the Membership fee invoice page, please check carefully that the categories listed for each swimmer, and total fees, are correct. If details need to be changed, please contact the club Registrar Mary Robertson BEFORE payment so changes can be made. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or through the WSC contact page.
