JOINING

Every few months, the club run a four week block of trial/induction sessions to give potential new members a chance to find out about the club, sample the training and take part in a competition, before committing to full club membership.

The block fee is £15.

Registration for the next block hasn't opened yet, but please use the link below to join the club waiting list. We'll then email you once the exact dates are confirmed and registration is open.

Waiting List

The club will no longer be accepting new junior members every Wednesday night, so please can we ask all members not to "bring along a friend" to training nights.

FEES

All junior members pay a monthly fee by standing order to cover club membership fees, Wednesday night training costs and league entry fees. Most senior athletes pay only an annual fee, unless they train at Craigswood on a Wednesday night, in which case they also pay a monthly fee.
