Dear Members,

We are pleased to announce that we have re-registered with Swimming Victoria (SV) for the 2020/2021 season. Bayside Swimming Club is the No.1 club in the South-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and ranks in the Top 20 in the country at National Championships. 

Following the release of our membership fees we hope that the following information, in providing some background to our operating costs and structure, will meet our aims of integrity and transparency for all our members.

The membership is made up of two components: the compulsory SV/SAL fee and the Bayside Club fee.

The SV/SAL fee goes to Swimming Victoria – the governing state body.

  • Swimming Victoria provides us with the mandatory insurance for all our members.
  • Allows you to compete at any swim meet.
  • Covers you for insurance at any swim meet endorsed by Swimming Victoria.

The Bayside Club fee is used to cover internal costs. These include regular club administration, accounting and auditing, subscriptions, communications, coaches, and club social expenses (not salaries). It also:

  • Gives you access to progress through the squad levels and benefit from the professional coaching network.
  • Ensures eligibility for State and National Teams
  • Ensures eligibility for Club Champion.
  • Ensures eligibility for Club trips and camps.

Bayside Swimming Club is a well managed and financially stable club. As such the Committee have considered expenses and, we feel that with prudent management and accountability we do not need to increase memberships fees. As a not for profit organisation, any membership surplus will be used for the benefit of all our members in ways appropriate to the age and stage of all our members.

The Committee feels that this one fee best reflects our Club’s ethos and culture and the provision of services to members regardless of age and ability.

Club membership for 2020/2021 runs for twelve months from July 1st 2020.


  • Our membership fee will be *$270 for all swimming members and
  • Dry Land members (mandatory, one adult per family) will be $20

There are two options for swimming memberships if you purchase before July 31st, 2020

  • Swimming Membership $270 receive 3 free entries to **eligible SV competitions OR
  • Swimming Membership $246 which includes a 30% discount on the SV component of the fees

**Please check Swim Victoria’s Terms and Conditions and ensure you understand their ‘eligible meets’.

All swimmers who wish to swim for fun or train for fitness or other sports, even if they do not intend to compete at any SV or Club hosted events, must be a Bayside Club member. Current membership expires on June 30th, 2020. It must be renewed to continue to swim.

We know there remains uncertainty about the easing of Government restrictions, full program offer, and coaching allocation, and this may be a consideration in renewing your membership. We are working tirelessly to be able to publish our full program offer including the announcing the appointment of our coaches and our training fees. At this stage, we await some key decisions beyond our control to be made.Training fees once set will continue to reflect the number of sessions attended.

We know that our offer will be a competitive market offer, providing high quality coaching and a positive swimming experiences within a safe and supportive environment, in a convenient location. In knowing this we hope that you can continue to support us and renew your membership as soon as possible.
