Application Forms


Second-claim members
Second-claim members are those who are already members of another England Athletics (EA) or UK Athletics (UKA) affiliated athletic club and registered with those clubs as "first-claim" competing athletes for EA or UKA purposes.

How to apply for membership of the club

We welcome new members. If you wish to join the club, or would like your child or children to join the club, please first speak to one of our coaches at the track or email us. We will then arrange a brief induction which will normally take place before one of our regular Tuesday or Thursday training sessions. The minimum age for membership of the club is 9 years.

NOTE: It is a condition of membership that club members should be prepared to compete for the club when requested to do so.

In addition to the annual subscription, there is a joining fee of £5 and a charge of £15 for a club vest.

The club's membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March. Subscriptions are reduced for those joining in the second half of the club year: members joining in the third quarter, from 1 October and 31 December, pay 50% of the annual subscription, while those joining in the fourth quarter of the club year, from 1 January to 31 March, pay the full annual subscription but receive the following 12 months of membership free, so for example it is possible by joining on 1 January to obtain 15 months of membership from one subscription.

England Athletics registration: All members aged 11 and over (and those aged 10 who will be 11 by 31 August) are registered, at the club's expense, as licensed, competing athletes with England Athletics, the national governing body for athletics*. After registration members receive a licence card from England Athletics, which may be used to obtain discounts from certain retail outlets, are automatically given a personal myAthletics page on the EA website, and have their competition results recorded on EA's Power of 10 website. The benefits of EA registration are explained in more detail on the EA website.

(*This excludes a small number of 'second-claim' members who are already registered with other clubs).
