How to become a member?
Becoming a member is easy. Register for the membership by filling in our registration form. You will then receive an invoice and you will be expected to pay your membership fees to our bank account. Our bank details are:
Account Name: JASI Masters
Account No: 02-0865- 0281163-000
Annual subs are due on 31 January.
How much does full membership cost?
We have several membership options for 2020:
- Annual Club Membership = $35.
This applies to all members and if you’d like to be a social club member this is the full cost.
- Lane Hire & Coaching Options:
- Option 1 (swimming both Sunday & Tuesday sessions each week) = $175. Total cost: $35 + $175 = $210.
- Option 2 (swimming either Sunday or Tuesday session each week) = $125. Total cost: $35 + $125 = $160.
- NZ Masters Swimming Membership = $70.
This is required if you’d like to compete at NZ Masters Swimming Meets (sanctioned) and we encourage all members to swim for the club at these. The maximum cost for a competitive swimmer as a result is $280.
The Lane Hire & Coaching fees are calcuated pro rata on a monthly basis. If you join the club in july then you will only have to pay half of the fee. The actual fee due is automatically calculated when you sign up.
Pool Entry to training sessions is by Entry Fee or Concession Card, paid for and arranged by the individual. (This goes to the CCC and does not cover our Lane Hire and Coaching).
Are there any part time membership options?
Yes. We offer “part-time” membership this year to encourage new members and swimmers who cannot always swim on a Tuesday night or Sunday morning. Everyone’s situation is different so to find out more please come along and join a training session (you’re welcome!) and ask for a committee member to explain. Alternatively send an email to our secretary.
Do I have to compete?
No. About 1/3 of our members compete in local and national short and long course swimming competitions. For serious competitors there are numerous opportunities to test skills and conditioning with regular Masters swimming meets. Our lanes cater for swimmers of all ability so it’s just a case of finding a lane that you are comfortable swimming in.
What if I just want to keep fit?
Many Masters swimmers are simply interested in the regular routine of working out and swimming twice a week is a great start.
A lot of us enjoy ocean swimming and keeping our swimming up over winter makes putting on our wetsuits in summer that much easier!
