Payments for Galas
Where the club supports a gala and entries are invited from WSMSC swimmers, cheques should be made out to "WSMSC" please and not to the club hosting the gala. It is the norm that cheques are only banked either once full acceptance has been received that we have got our swimmers into the meet or at the time of the meet itself. We don't bank cheques at the time you submit your entry in case of rejections/scratches.
Parents are reminded that the annual costs of running the club are spread across 12 monthly fees. The current fees at the moment are pre-development £44 per month; development £46 per month; potential and performance £50 per month. Details are published on the Club Fees page.
