Who is this for?
If you are a swimmer that has not yet been a member of a competition swimming club in Australia, then a trial membership is for you. A trial membership allows you to try out with our club for 1 month at no cost, while being properly registered and insured with our governing body Swimming SA. We encourage all new swimmers to take this opportunity to become familiar with our club – our coaches, swimmers, squads and training programs – before committing to membership and training fees.
What is a Trial Membership?
A trial membership is a temporary free membership of;
- Swimming SA – the governing body for our sport in South Australia
- Mountain Pool Amateur Swimming Club (MPASC) – our swimming club
We simply request information on each swimmer to ensure that they can train safely with us, and that they are properly insured. The trial membership lasts until the end of each calendar month.
Points to note:
• Trial period – The trial membership lasts until the end of the calendar month in which the trial starts (so it’s advantageous to start at the beginning of a month!)
• No cost – The trial is completely free (no membership or training fees during this period)
• Full membership – At the end of the trial period, you will be asked to sign up and pay membership fees for both Swimming SA and our club. In order to continue swimming with our club you must join both organisations.
• No obligation – You are under no obligation to join at the end of the trial period. The purpose of the trial is to allow you to make sure our club is right for you before committing to any fees.
• No competition during trial – You will not be able to enter competitions during the trial – this requires full membership – but you can take up full membership before the trial ends if you wish.
How to register your Trial Membership with Swimming SA
Swimming SA are a subsidiary of Swimming Australia, and use a web-based system called Swim Central to manage membership details, swimming events, etc. The steps for registration are….
