Members who hold a recreational swimming membership can upgrade to a competitive membership at their club by following the steps below. The way the upgrade process works is to purchase the NEW membership product, transfer from the OLD membership product and an automatic refund (of components which are common to both membership products) will happen in the background. Any funds that are reimbursed should be received within 10 days of the transfer being initiated.
If you are upgrading from a membership that was purchased using a NSW Government Voucher please contact Swimming NSW as there is a different process for these transfers.
