Members pay a fee related to their training squad, this reflects the increased coaching and pool time as the swimmers progress.

The monthly fee covers the Monthly swimming fee and all training. Club fees are calculated on an annual basis and are payable in twelve equal monthly payments, irrespective of attendance.

Membership runs from 1 October - 30 September. The club's annual membership fee is due in September. The Annual Swim England membership fee is due in January each year.

Club Constitution

The constitution can also be opened here.

Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) Registration

As we are a competitive club, the ASA registration fee is necessary for every club member and helper.  This is an annual payment fixed by the ASA and includes insurance.  If any members wish further information regarding the ASA fee please contact the club secretary.

Policy re New and Returning Swimmers

New swimmers are permitted a free three week trial with the club in line with ASA rules.  This does not apply to returning members.  Swimmers returning to Derby Phoenix after a swimming break must immediately renew their membership in compliance with ASA regulations.  We ask that those swimmers wishing to return contact the membership secretary in advance so that forms may be sent out and membership re-instated prior to the swimmer returning to the pool.

Resignation

If you choose to leave Derby Phoenix please complete the resignation form which can be found in "club documents" and forward to the membership secretary at membership@derbyphoenix.com. Alternatively please email the club secretary or membership secretary.  

Please provide one month's notice and ensure all fees are fully up to date

Welfare

Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility

Derby Phoenix is governed by Wave Power which is Swim England’s safeguarding policy and procedure. A full copy of Wave Power can be found https://www.swimming.org/swimengland/about-swim-england/safeguarding/

What is safeguarding?

The policies and procedures that we employ to keep people safe and promote their wellbeing. This is about all people within the club being proactive. Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.  

What is child protection?

This is one aspect of safeguarding. It is a term used to describe the activity that is undertaken to protect specific children/adults who are suffering or likely to suffer significant harm. For example, those that need a referral to the police/children’s services. This means people within the club need to be reactive.

In 2024, there was a Wave Power update that all club members should be aware of.
