We warmly welcome as members all athletes, track and field, road and cross country runners from 8 years old upwards, at all levels, who want to train regularly. We warmly welcome disabled athletes to join us. We encourage all members to participate in organised competition representing Corby AC. We actively encourage volunteers and families to support us by joining Corby AC as associate members.
The membership categories are as follows:
Competitive member - for athletes aged 8 upwards training and competing for Corby AC. Competitive members can train at the Tuesday and Thursday training sessions at a cost of £2 per session per member (to cover track usage), and can join the weekend training sessions (at no cost) as appropriate. They can represent Corby AC at competitive events, working with the coaches and team managers. New members are given a voucher to exchange for a club vest at the tea bar. Competitive members have the right to vote at the AGM, and to attend the club awards night and social events.
Competitive members pay £35 for the first year and £20 for every subsequent year. The full £35 membership fee in the first year is required for each adult and each child but in the second year onwards family membership is £60 for families with three or more members. The fourth and subsequent members in the same family have free membership from the second year onwards. Each membership fee includes the £15 registration with the England Athletics Affiliation scheme which entitles members to compete in appropriate athletic events. Members also have UKA insurance cover (for details please see UKA website). Corby AC members are therefore automatically members of England Athletics.
Training member (2nd claim) - for members of other clubs who train regularly at Corby AC. Training members can join the Corby AC training sessions paying £2 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Training members can train at all the Corby AC training sessions but can’t compete for Corby. Training members pay £20 per year.
Associate member - for 1) volunteers in all roles, 2) spouses, partners, parents, carers and siblings of competitive members and 3) former competitive members and volunteers who wish to continue to support Corby AC.
Associate members are encouraged to give their practical support to the club by volunteering whatever time they can, and by supporting competitive members at events.
Associate membership is free and at the discretion of the membership secretary.
Associate members are not able to attend training sessions as athletes, but may take up competitive membership at any time if they wish to.
Prospective member - all prospective competitive and training members are welcome to train at Corby AC for two weeks, without paying any track fees, before deciding whether or not to take up membership. Please ask in the club house for a membership form to fill in and sign the relevant section prior to training on a trial, or click here to access the form and hand in at the tea bar. Safety at training sessions is clearly explained in the ‘Best Practice Guidelines for club training nights’ which is attached to the form. This must be signed by all prospective members and also by parents/carers of prospective members under 16 years old. The parents or carers of children under 16 years of age remain responsible for those children on site at Corby AC.
