Payment Information

Note that this does not apply to Tuesday night swimming payments. Payments for Tuesday night swimming will be collected as described by the Tuesday night swimming organisers.

Club Payments:

All Club payments, if possible, should be made to the main Karori Pirates Swimming Club bank account 03-0502-0590602-000.

Summer camp monies are collected in a separate account and should be sent to 03-0502-0590602-002 and coded 44 4444.

As a general rule, cash payments will not be accepted by the club. However, cash may be accepted on some club funding events when specifically advised by the club.

Payment methods:

1. Internet Banking with the following details:

Particulars: Swimmers Last Name
Code: Swimmers First Initial (if more than one swimmer use the first initials separated by '&' e.g. "A & B")
Reference: Event reference, a 6 digit code as defined below

2. Banking direct into the Club account where you can't use the above format or use any letters in the payment reference:

Make sure the deposit slip is signed legibly with your full name and use the Karori Pirates invoice number as the reference.

3. Cheques deposited at the pool box:

Cheques should be placed in a sealed envelope with the swimmer's full name and event reference clearly written on the front. No cheques should be posted to the club PO Box or passed on to any club member.

Event references:

Races: Always given in the meet details on the Pirates website. The format is ususally (but now always) the date of the meet displayed as 'YY DDMM' e.g. The reference code for a meet held on 24 September 2011 would normally be 11 2409. Please note that race payments not received by race date may result in your swimmer being scratched from the event.
