There are heaps of great reasons for Swimming Clubs to affiliate with Swimming Queensland (SQ) and their Regional Associations, which we’ve outlined in our Club Benefits section.
In May/June each year, clubs that have affiliated with Swimming Queensland for the previous season will be sent an invitation to re-affiliate for the upcoming season. This invitation outlines the steps required to affiliate (as per the information below).
If you want to start a brand-new club or your Club did not affiliate with Swimming Queensland last season, your Club will need to follow a different process, which is detailed on our Start a Club page.
- Affiliation Process
- An affiliation confirmation email; and
- Access to Swim Central
- Club Details;
- Committee position holders;
- Bank Details; and
- Stripe Contact.
- Affiliation Fees For 2020-21
The official affiliation season runs from 1 July to 30 June the following year.
Swimming Queensland will email clubs who were affiliated for the previous season an affiliation invitation along with an invoice for the upcoming season’s affiliation fees, in May/June each year.
The affiliation invitation will be emailed to your designated Club Contact and the invoice will be emailed to your Club’s Treasurer. If you do not receive this, please request another copy to be sent by contacting us.
A club committee member will need to complete the Online Affiliation Form, which will be provided in the affiliation invitation.
Your Club will need to organise payment of the Affiliation Invoice, which has been emailed to your Treasurer.
Once your Club’s payment and affiliation form has been processed you will receive:
Please note, all invoices and forms are processed as soon as possible. Clubs must have no outstanding debts to Swimming Queensland or their Regional Association in order for their affiliation to be accepted. Outstanding debts will delay the affiliation process until payment has been received.
Once you have received access to Swim Central, you’ll need to confirm your details are correct in Swim Central and update if necessary, including:
After clubs have completed the steps above they have successfully completed the affiliation for the new season.
