Despite the year we have had we hope you are well and are looking forward to returning to the pool, training and competing as soon as we can.
It’s that time of year when we look towards membership renewal. Last year has been a difficult one and until we return to training we have decided to put the Chorley Marlins annual membership fees for squads of £30 on hold.
The club membership you contributed in 2020, which we are grateful for, has enabled us to continue with our coaches development, with online courses attended by our support team and older swimmers throughout lockdown. We have also had three of our swimming members qualify as level 1 coaches and two qualify as level 1 swim teachers ready for our new season.
However we have been contacted by Swim England and renewal fees are due by 14th February 2021.
We will be emailing renewal forms to you shortly with details of Swim England membership and once we have returned details for Chorley Marlins membership.
We have attached the SE statement for your information.
Wishing you all well
Chorley Marlins Committee
