Application Forms


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

Applying for Membership

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.

All 'first-claim' members aged 11 and over are registered, at the club's expense, as licensed, competing athletes with England Athletics, the national governing body for athletics. It is a condition of membership that club members should be prepared to compete for the club when requested to do so.

The club's membership year runs from 1 April to 31 March.

The normal subscriptions are reduced for people joining late in the club year. Members joining in the third quarter of the club year, from 1 October and 31 December, pay 50% of the annual subscription. Members 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.

Note that in all cases every new member is required to pay a joining fee of £5 and to pay £15 for a club vest.

For membership purposes a junior is someone who will be under 18 years of age on 31st August 2018. A student is someone who will be under 22 years of age on 31st August 2018 and is in full-time education. An adult is someone who will be 18 years of age or over on 1st September 2018, unless in full-time education and below the age of 22.
