Do you want to improve your performance? Do you want to train at a world class athletics facility with qualified coaches? If the answer to any of these is yes then come and join the Birchfield Harriers Academy.
“I joined Birchfield Harriers when I was 11, it has really helped me develop as an all round athlete. The coaches are always encouraging me.”
The academy acts as the club’s induction group for new young members and provides young people with the opportunity to train at world class facilities with qualified coaches. You must be at least 9 years old and we welcome parents to stop and watch what is on offer.
Every Academy attendee is required to submit a Birchfield membership fee of £57, this covers our membership period from April 1st to the following year March 31st.
After a 12 week period the attendee must decide if she/he wishes to continue to attend the Academy, at which you will be required to become a member of Birchfield Harriers.
From April we require that all memberships are renewed, in order to retain their place on the Academy register.
If membership is not renewed names will be removed from the register at regular intervals, as we assume you no longer wish to continue with us. Contact details will be cleared to comply with the Data Protection Act. People will then have to reapply for membership once more.
Membership fees should be submitted along with a passport photo (unless you already have an Academy card) to the Academy Leaders at your next Academy session or by post to the Birchfield office. If you are renewing then we will just need the renewal fee – you will be given a receipt.
