LEISURE PASS INFO
ALL SWIMMERS 8 YEARS OLD +
All swimmers attached to Canvey Island Swimming Club either with Swim Squads or via our Swim School over 8 years old are required to have a Leisure Pass for Waterside Farm. There is a charge for the Leisure Pass additional to any club fees which are handled and paid directly to Waterside Farm.
These passes will need to be transferred over to Runnymede so swimmers can access the changing room area. The Committee has provided a list of squad swimmers to Waterside Farm Management and a copy of the list to Runnymede Management also. It is hoped that they can begin to transfer current passes over prior to squad members attending their first training session.
Swimmers should therefore locate their Leisure Passes for presentation on their first, and all future swimming sessions at Runnymede. It is suggested also that you attend early so if there has been any hiccup with individual or indeed the bulk transfer that this can be resolve in plenty of time.
ALL SWIMMERS UNDER 8 YEARS OLD
Children under the age of 8 where not previously required to have Leisure Passes at Waterside Farm. Runnymede however do required a Leisure Pass for the under 8’s. Parents will be relieved to know that these are issued without charge. However there is an application form to be completed.
Using club records we hope to partially complete these forms for parents review, but they will need checking and signing and we may miss some!
Passes are unlikely to be issued on your first attendance at Runnymede, but if we can complete the application forms before or at your first Runnymede swimming session this should help the overall process.
Again we suggest that swimmers arrive early for their session so we can complete any paperwork and pool staff can provide appropriate access to the pool facilities.
DON’T HAVE A CURRENT LEISURE PASS OR IT IS LOST!
New Pass (aged 8 -15) £10.35
Renew (aged 8-15) £ 8.00
Under 8’s – no charge
Accompanying Parents are not required to hold a Leisure Pass.
You can obtain a replacement Lesisure Pass at Waterside Farm but a fee is chargable.
