Fees

Online applications opened August 14, 2023. We encourage swimmers to apply early to avoid disappointment as our sessions tend to fill quickly. If a session is full, please complete the online application as this is also our waitlist. We will contact you to let you know we have received your application. If there is space available, you will be asked to submit your annual membership fee and the fees for the session you are swimming. If the session is full, you will be offered any available sessions and we will let you know if a space opens up for the session you requested.

We ask swimmers to commit to specific swim days and for at least a four-month session (Sept-Jan is 4.5mo; Feb-May is 4mo). Our Ebbtides registration fees include pool admission so it's like paying your pool fee with the added benefit of great coaching, a swim routine planned for you, and a fun social group to help you reach your goals.

Club members may opt to swim once a week (Saturday mornings), twice a week, Monday and Wednesday (choose either mornings or evenings), three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, and either Friday-competitive or Saturday) or four times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday). Friday morning swims are only for those who want to focus on faster competitive swim training.

ALL members are required to pay a one-time $50 annual membership fee. This fee covers your membership with Swimming Canada ($12.50), Swim BC ($25), MSABC ($11.50), and Ebbtides ($1). Our session fees (Sept-Jan, 4.5 months and Feb-May, 4 months) are based on the number of times you swim per week. The $50 membership fee must be paid prior to swimming with the club. Spring session fees are due in January. As a thanks to members who pay for the entire year in August, fees are reduced by 1/2 a month (see the amount shown in brackets below).

- 1x/week @ $45/month: $200 for Sept 18-Jan 31 and $180 for Feb 1-May 31 ($360)
- 2x/week @ $65/month: $290 for Sept 18-Jan 31 and $260 for Feb 1-May 31 ($520)
- 3x/week @ $85/month: $380 for Sept 18-Jan 31 and $340 for Feb 1-May 31 ($680)
- 4x/week @ $100/month: $450 for Sept 18-Jan 31 and $400 for Feb 1-May 31 ($950)
*The $50 membership fee is added to the amount paid, but only once/year.

Please note that payment of the membership fee and the first session is required before you are deemed registered. To guarantee your spot for the second session, payment is due by January 25. Make payment(s) by e-transfer to our treasurer, John Stymiest at: ebbtidepayment@shaw.ca
