$17.00 (GST inclusive) per week for swimmers training 1 session per week
$29.75 (GST inclusive) per week for swimmers training 2 sessions per week
$38.25 (GST inclusive) per week for swimmers training 3 sessions per week

If swimmers suffer any serious injuries or illnesses, eg fractured limbs or glandular fever, which necessitate a prolonged absence from training, consideration may be given to adjusting the account in the following term.
