2015 WAC Membership Required Now !
Last edited: Wednesday January 7th 2015
Dear Members,

The time for renewal of club membership is here again. Warrington Athletics Club (WAC) membership runs from January to December each year. The membership form is attached or can be downloaded here :-

http://warringtonathletic.org/forms/Membership%20Form.pdf

Only Junior (under 11 to under 17) (£27), Senior (£37) and 2nd Claim (where an athlete is primarily and UK Athletics registered with another club) (£15) membership types exist. UK Athletics affiliation fees have increased by £2 an athlete which has been passed on in the membership fee. WAC have not increased their own element yet again.

Membership and gate fees help the club fund such areas as facility rental, training/sports equipment maintenance and purchase, club affiliation, coach/official training, open meetings, team competition entry, social events and all the administration costs of running a club. Included in the membership fee is the individual’s “UK Athletics affiliation” (currently £12). This fee caters for a number of areas but includes insurance, health and safety, licensing and development opportunities. More information on this can be found at http://www.englandathletics.org/page.aspx?sitesectionid=1743%C2%A7ionT

For 2015, the club is also offering a session fees payment option. This is in addition to the membership fee but for an annual fee of £80, a WAC card will be issued and gate fees at the Victoria Park track (or replacement venue) will no longer be required (on production of the card). Obviously, this option is only beneficial to those who train in a consistent and frequent manner. Please note that this will not apply for entry into commercial venues eg. David Lloyd - if an individual coach decides to use such facilities. Furthermore, no refunds will be issued if an athlete is out injured or decides to leave the club. An additional fee will be required to replace lost or damaged cards. Standing order options for automated banking are also available - further detals on request. Fees per session have again remained unchanged at £1 per session (payable at the gate). Please note that track is only available on club nights (Mon, Wed, Thu) and if members want to use outside these times then they have to pay Warrington Borough Council the fee of £3.50 per session. No athlete will be allowed onto the track without paying the correct fee.

Thank you for your continued support and best wishes for a happy 2015.
