Linked Parent Account
As of early 2019, Swimming Australia now requires all members under 18 to be part of a linked family group with an adult aged 18 or over. This means that a parent account must be added to family groups where all linked members are currently under 18. It is not necessary for parents to make a membership payment when creating a membership account.
Renewing your Membership
The membership period for swimming clubs in New South Wales is from 1st October to the 30th September of the following year. During the month of September it is possible to renew your subscription to ensure that all of the benefits that arise from membership carry on, in particular with regards to entering swim meets at Club, Area, State and National championship level.
Membership renewals on Swim Central are handled via replacement products. A replacement product will be automatically assigned to a member prior to their old product expiring. Members can complete the payment of this new product (i.e. renew their membership) through their ‘My Purchases’ tile.

Member Support of Club & Team Activities
Both the Carlile Swimming Team and the Carlile Heritage Clubs rely upon parents/caregivers and supporters to assist in the delivery of club activities. As a component of membership all members acknowledge that it is a requirement of membership of the Carlile Swimming Team, that they or their parent/caregiver/supporter assist with and contribute to the fulfillment of club obligations and the delivery of club activities from time to time.
Second Claim Membership
An important component of the Carlile Swimming Team is the continued link to the Heritage Clubs via an ongoing involvement of all members in Heritage club activities such as club nights, club championships and social activities. To facilitate this linkage, each member of the Carlile Swimming Team originating from Ryde will automatically become a second claim member of their originating Carlile Heritage Club. Parental and swimmer support of Heritage Club activities is of the utmost importance. The benefits of second claim membership and financial subsidies to attend national championships will be tied to the support of the Heritage Club's activities.
Working with Children Check
Carlile Swimming is committed to providing a safe environment for all to participate in the sport, as such Individual Non-Swimming members joining the Carlile Swimming Team will be required to provide team management with a valid NSW Working With Children Check, including check number and expiry date at the time of registration. Throughout the period of membership with the Carlile Swimming Team it is the individual's responsibility to maintain a valid working with children check.
