KSC MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS 2021
January is traditionally the time for everyone to renew their annual membership of Kimberley Swimming Club and despite the Pandemic and current Lockdown, Swim England have indicated renewals will still need to be completed as usual. Please assist us by renewing your membership for 2021 as soon as possible. This year since we are in Lockdown we have provided details and instructions at the bottom of this note regards how to make a direct bank transfer payment for 2021 membership renewal fees
THE DEADLINE FOR RENEWALS IS 21st FEBRUARY 2021 LATEST
[should your fees not be paid by this date your membership will be automatically lapsed].
If you have already decided NOT to renew your membership with us for 2021 please let us know by emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org so we do not chase you for an update at a later date. Please also note that if you later decide to re-join KSC once we are able to get back in the water, the new membership fees will become payable immediately at the same rates mentioned below as Swim England do not offer any pro-rata reductions for months when pools are not able to open]
Please note: The membership fees for 2021 remain unchanged from 2020 and the 3 Swim England Fee elements are set by Swim England and as our club have no influence or control of these, KSC must be affiliated to the National, Regional and County governing bodies of Swim England.

We know these are difficult and unsettling times right now and we fully appreciate times are hard for many and money may be in short supply. Additionally we are asking you to commit to renewing swimming club membership without any certainty of a date when swimming will resume. We are sorry Swim England have already confirmed they are not able to offer deferment of membership renewals but you can be assured we at KSC will do everything in our power to get all swimmers back in the water as soon as we can, We have established strong COVID-19 protocols with Liberty Leisure which have served us well for the past months and we love having swimmers in the water enjoying themselves, keeping fit and interacting with their friends and club staff.
Our great desire at the club is to keep your swimmers swimming in a safe, structured and supportive environment, but we understand some of you may not feel able to commit to renewing your membership with us right now.
If you have any worries or concerns regards renewing membership either financial, COVID-19 or otherwise related please let us know and as a community club we will do our best to help and hopefully alleviate your concerns in a discreet and confidential manner.
