To take account of the increase in the England Athletics Registration fee, membership fees have increased by £2 for the 2017/18 season. None of this addition income will go to the Club so the Birchfield membership fee has not increased. It is critical that annual subscriptions are paid promptly on the due date of 1st April 2017 as you will not be registered with England Athletics until your fee has been paid so will not be able to compete in any Club or open meetings as organisers will be checking entries and your performance will not be recorded.
Please also note that the Club is able to be sensitive and discreet in cases where there is difficulty in paying subscriptions. Please notify a Club official at the earliest opportunity (i.e. before the above deadlines) to discuss how we can help.
We now have rates for both Competitive and Non-Competitive members for seniors as we expect all our junior members to compete. If you wish to be listed as a Non-Competing Member it is essential that you clearly indicate this when completing the Renewal Form (please understand that this will remove your eligibility to compete in ALL events – leagues, championships and open meetings for ALL disciplines). In addition Associate Membership does not allow you to train during Club nights.
