Payment for swims
Please be advised that when Sharks swimmers are entered in a gala the club has to pay the host club in full and up front for all the events that each swimmer has chosen to compete in.
When the list of accepted swims is published we are then informed of swimmers that have been scratched from any events. The club will receive a full refund for any scratched swims and we would not expect anyone to pay for a scratched swim. All other swims (including reserve swims) are then due to be paid for.
If a swimmer has a reserve swim then the expectation is that the swimmer will attend the gala. If the swimmer doesn’t get the reserve swim for any reason then the club will receive a full refund for that swim. If the swimmer gets the reserve swim or fails to turn up for that event then the refund will not be due back to the club.
Attending galas is the biggest single external expense that the club has and it is vital that all payments are received within a reasonable
timeframe. If anyone is ever unsure about what they are due to pay for any events you can get details at the desk every Wednesday night. If you are unable to attend on a Wednesday please
