Fees, Income & Expenditure

Membership Fees

The club membership fee for swimmers is £30.00 per year, payable in August. A reduced rate is offered for a second swimmer from the same family, and again for a third+ swimmer.

Our club is affiliated to Scottish Swimming, so Ythan ASC members must also be members of Scottish Swimming. The annual fee for this is collected at the start of each calendar year and is paid to Scottish Swimming in March.  As of 2024, this annual fee is £48.00, which is reduced for the remainder of the year depending on when a swimmer joins the club.

Club membership for non-swimmers, such as parent coaches and technical officials, is covered by annual membership with Scottish Swimming. As at 2024, this is £12.00 per year.

Training Fees

Training fees are charged at £3.00 per hour. As a minimum, all swimming members pay for Friday 'Club Night' sessions, regardless of whether or not they attend.

Collection of Fees

Fees for Friday evening and any additional training sessions are collected at the start of each school term in advance, with details of the sessions they have agreed to attend and the total fee payable. 

Fees are generally paid by bank transfer, although we can accept cash and personal cheques. 

Other Income

While training fees are the main source of income, additional fundraising initiatives are vital to the upkeep of the club. The main fundraiser is our annual graded meet, held every May, where the club generously receives donations from local companies and organisations, as well as entry fees from competing teams, stalls and a raffle. There is also the occasional 'cake bake', 'rag bag' collection and supermarket 'bag pack' which we would encourage all swimmers and parents to become involved with.  We also receive a small income from “”. For many years, Ythan ASC helped organise the Ythan Challenge; a multi-terrain race held in Ellon each year; for which a donation was received.

Our Expenditure

Ythan ASC is a non-profit making organisation. Whilst a working balance is held in our bank account, all monies received are used to pay for pool hire, meet entries, to buy equipment for swimmers, provide education and cover general operating costs such as stationery etc.
