Membership is £5 annually, though there is now an option to join without payment. We have introduced this to encourage swimmers who otherwise might not join the association to do so, especially in times such as these where a strong collective voice for swimmers has never been needed more. Membership without payment is full membership. We do strongly encourage those who can to pay the £5 fee, which helps cover our costs both routine (administration, annual events) and exceptional (campaigning funds, nice-to-haves). There is also an option to add an additional donation; many members do and this is much appreciated. This is also what allows us to provide the non-paying option.
