Reducing Membership Secretaries admin
Encouraging your club members to visit www.englandathletics.org/editmyprofile and keep their own profile up to date will minimise the updating work needing to be done by the club secretary.
It also means that day-to-day information athletes want can be delivered directly to them in accordance with the options they have ticked on their profile.
If you have a problem or query relating to club affiliation or athlete registration you can contact membership services:
You can view a document showing the athletics clubs there are in England, and whether they have a paid up affiliation. The document, last updated November 2013, can be downloaded by clicking here. If you have any queries with this information please contact Membership Services at email@example.com or 0121 347 6543
Forms and information on the processes for an athlete moving clubs are available for download on the right hand side of this page. The form to be filled out is 'Change of first claim club' instructions on information on the process are given in 'Athletes guide to change of club'. Our Athletes section contains the Eligibility Decisions for each month. Also on the right is an application form which should be completed by those athletes wishing to compete for a new Club in a discipline for which their First Claim Club does not affiliate.
One benefit of becoming an affiliated club is the insurance cover associated with this. For more details on the insurance cover provided via UK Athletics please click here.
We have produced a document outlining the process and criteria for creating a new athletics club. Please see our Guidance for New Club Applications for Affiliation - Nov 2010 document.
