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 five types of membership:
- Full or Competitive
- Associate or Non-Competitive (seniors only)
- Second Claim (you may join us as a second claim member if you have another first claim club)
- Volunteer (this can be as a coach, an official or club helper)
- 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)
Annual Membership Fees
The Trustees have not increased the membership fees for 2021/22 despite the challenges presented by Covid-19. The fees are:
Seniors – Full or Competitive membership – £47 (this includes the England Athletics registration fee of £15 and the Northern Athletics affiliation fee of £2).
Seniors – Second claim membership – £30
Seniors – Associate or Non-competitive membership – £30
Students – Full or Competitive membership – £32 (includes EA and NA registration/affiliation)
Students – Second claim membership – £15

Under 11s – Full membership – £15 (under 11s are not required to register with EA)
Volunteers – £0 (although there will be a facility for gift donations)
Hardship – £0 (at the discretion of the membership secretary)
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.
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).
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 now has an on-line membership system which from 1st August will allow members to pay in advance for sessions for the month. Otherwise training fees are charged in arrears for the sessions that the member has participated in. Charges are made on the 2nd day of each month. This is done through an electronic membership card which must be purchased (£5) by all members.
The Club will permit a potential member to participate in 4 taster sessions with the 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. PLEASE NOTE IF YOU ARE A PARENT/CARER FILLING IN THE FORM ON BEHALF OF YOUR CHILD IT IS YOUR CHILD’S DATE OF BIRTH THAT SHOULD BE PROVIDED.
If you would like some additional information then please call our 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.
2021/22 Membership Renewal
The club has been successful in its application to become a charity. Therefore for this year members seeking to renew membership will actually be applying to become a member of the new charity. The club has invested in an on-line membership portal (attendli) and existing members should receive an email from the club that will allow them to log into the new system and register for membership. The charity trustees will consider the applications and grant membership subject to appropriate fees having been paid.
