Club Membership - Join Us or Renew Your Membership
We always welcome new members, whether you wish to train, compete or volunteer to help our club
We have four types of member:
- Associate or Informal (non-competitive and nob-voting)
- Second Claim (you may join us as a second claim member if you have another first claim club)
- Life (Trustees may grant life membership so a member who has made a significant contribution to the success of the club either as a competitor or a volunteer)
We ask all members to exercise their powers as a member of the club in a way that they decide in good faith would be likely to further the purposes of the club.
Annual Membership Fees
The Trustees have not increased the membership fees for 2021/22 despite the challenges presented by Covid-19. The fees are:
- Senior (over 20) – Full £30 plus EA and NA registration fees (currently a total £17) – Associate/Informal/Second Claim £30
- Junior (over 11 and under 20 and students) – Full £15 plus EA and NA registration fees as above
- Under 11 – Full £15 (there is no requirement for under 11s to register with EA or NA)
Full membership is required to compete for the club (other than for second claim members who will have paid EA registration as part of their first claim club membership).
From 1st April there is a fixed cost of £3 per session at the Market Street track. This charge is made to contribute towards the costs for managing the track facility.
The Club is investing in an on-line membership system which will allow members to pay in advance for sessions for the month or to be charged in arrears for the sessions they have participated. This will be done through an electronic membership card.
The Club will permit a potential member to participate in 4 taster sessions with thee Club before we ask for a commitment to membership. The £3 training fee is applicable to these sessions.
If you are interested in taking part, whether as an active member or in any other role (for example volunteering, officiating, coaching, making the tea!) then please complete the enquiry form below or call club secretary Helen Vaughan on 07802 436 589. Please remember, everyone involved at the club is a volunteer and we may not be able to respond to your enquiry immediately.
Please be aware that we do not usually coach children under the age of 8.
Membership Renewal Takes Place Every April
Existing members can renew their membership online. A link to allow members to renew their membership will be available below this item when the renewal portal is open. This will also explain how to pay club membership fees online.
If you renew your membership after April you will still be required to pay the full annual membership fee. For members renewing after Christmas you will still need to pay the full fee, but that fee will cover membership for 15 months (i.e. up to the end of March the following year).
Note – Covid 19 has had a significant impact on club operations. The club has required athletes to be full members to participate in the limited sessions that we have been able to hold as a Covid Secure Facility. The most recent full lockdown that commenced in January has resulted in the full closure of the facility again. It may be that the club will not able to operate again until the Spring of 2021.
