Scarborough Pool Entry Fees

Scarborough Beach Pool has a variety of pool entry options, including casual, multi-passes and monthly memberships. Please enquire at the reception desk for more details. Spectators are free.
How To Register with Tuart Hill Swimming Club
All prospective swimmers, except Adult & Surf squad, need to be assessed by our Head Coach.
After the assessment, register online here, then we’ll confirm the enrolment. Enter parent/adult information as the customer, then add each swimmer and enrol in the applicable squad as assessed by the coaching team.
For Adult & Surf squad, please select only the sessions you wish to attend.
For all other squads, select all sessions available for that squad, even if you do not intend to attend all sessions.
Once you have registered, we will send you the invoice.
Each season, our coaches select 3 swimming meets to compete in. Competing is optional and no pressure is placed on our swimmers to compete, but the option is there if they are interested.
We run Club Meets once a month, which are fun, family-friendly, no-pressure meets for members only with emphasis on participation rather than winning. They are run at Scarborough Pool instead of training and are included as part of your membership.
Note, in general, all training at Scarborough Pool is cancelled when a targeted meet is scheduled, as well as on public holidays. We also take occasional breaks, such as end of season and Christmas/New Year period.
