Affiliation Renewal

female athletes running

The affiliation year runs from 1 April - 31 March. The process for renewal is:

  1. A digital pack for affiliation and registration guidelines for clubs is sent to Club Secretaries in March.
  1. Clubs can renew their club affiliation from 2 April via the myAthletics portal where they will be asked to:
    • Complete their Club Standards checklist
    • Review and update all club committee roles
    • Pay the £200 club affiliation fee which will be automatically added to their first order
    • Process the athlete registration fees for their athletes and runners and update their information accordingly

Please note that due to the 1 April 2024 falling on Easter Monday, to ensure the portal can be technically supported and to enable our clubs to have our Member Engagement Team available to them, our system will not reopen for payments until 0900 on the 2 April 2024.

U11 registration scheme

Whilst it is not compulsory for under 11s to register in order to compete, there are benefits to each club in registering under 11s and England Athletics are committed to helping clubs grow the number of volunteers they have available to help out in their club.

Registered under 11s will receive an electronic pack, as well as an offer for their parents/guardians to attend a Leading Athletics or Officials course free of charge which will encourage parents to be available and volunteer in their child’s club environment.

During 2024, England Athletics will continue to help each club grow their coaching volunteers and for every 30 x U11s registered, England Athletics will provide a free place on a Coaching Assistant course, and the club will be able to choose who to send on these courses.

At the beginning of each month, England Athletics will calculate the number of under 11s registered and supply each club who has met this criteria with a voucher code to supply to their chosen candidate. They will then be able to enrol and begin their coaching pathway.
