*   The joining fee is a one-off charge, which is the cost of a club vest that you will need for competitions.

**  The England Athletics fee is paid directly to that association and entitles you to take part in most athletics events at a reduced rate.  We strongly urge you to pay this affiliation fee.   For children who will not reach their 11th birthday by 31st March 2020, there is no England Athletics Affiliation fee to pay for the period to 31st March 2020.  Otherwise for all Juniors it is compulsory from the age of 11 upwards.

*** The membership fee for any person joining the club from 1st October onwards will be half the full membership fee (i.e. Senior fee for 6 months = £30, junior fee for 6 months = £20).  Any person joining the club from 1st January 2020 onwards will pay the full fee which will cover the first 15 months membership (i.e. membership until 31st March 2021). 

Associate Membership is available to 'social' members who do not take part in any club training or compete as a club member OR to anyone who is a second claim athlete and is registered as first claim with another club.

Please be aware that your details will be shared with EA even if you do not pay an EA fee.
