Club Rebate Program


Club Rebate Program

The Club Rebate Program will provide a cash rebate to clubs who increase their membership numbers. The rebate will be 60% of the Swimming Victoria fee paid by the members above that of the final figures for the season prior.


The club rebate program has been launched as an incentive program for Swimming Victoria affiliated clubs. SV has made a commitment to review the membership model and offerings for 2017-18 and the Club Rebate Program is the first step in this bigger process.  

The Club Rebate Program will;

  1.     Promote club member growth and in turn SV member growth;
  2.     Invest in clubs;
  3.     Allow clubs to build their resources;
  4.     Encourage clubs to declare previously unregistered members; and
  5.     Provide a statement of goodwill to clubs in the interim period of the membership review.



The figures used to calculate the clubs scorecard will be June 30th 2016 and June 1st 2017. These figures used are to ensure payments can be finalised prior to the end of the financial year. Payments are to be paid at the end of the program to ensure calculations account for transfers and lost members. The following table outlines the rebate associated with each member category;

*Rebates are paid including or excluding GST dependent upon the club’s GST registration status

Rebates are calculated with a two-step process. To be eligible for a rebate you must for achieve on the overall increase in total members. Once this is achieved the rebate is calculated on a category basis. i.e. if you have 116 members at the end of the 15/16 season and then achieve 118 in the 16/17 season the rebate depends on the individual category of the 117th and 118th member. i.e. if the 117th member was a swimmer and the 118th member was their parent through a non-swimmer category the rebate is $48.60 + $15.00. Timestamps identified through ClubLANE will be used to calculate payments. Full payment of the SV membership must be receipted prior to being eligible for any rebate.

Clubs may only be eligible for rebate payments if they have no outstanding fees to SV and they had members registered with SV in the 15/16 season.
