Membership Terms

An athlete is only a member of the club if the relevant membership fees are paid up to date.  

Members who are athletes are expected to abide by the following code of conduct at all times:

  • Arrive for training and events in good time to prepare thoroughly.
  • Turn up with appropriate kit for the activity and the weather.  If you are representing the club at a track or running event you are expected to wear club clothing.
  • Train to the best of your ability and for fun and enjoyment – not just to please others.
  • Learn and participate by the rules.
  • Bring a positive attitude to training and competitions.
  • Talk openly to the coaches and respect them. Do not argue with your coach and support team or officials at a competition – use your energies for performing.
  • Recognise and applaud all good performances.
  • Be a good sport – win modestly, lose with dignity.
  • Respect other people – treat them as you would wish to be treated.
  • Respect and co-operate with coaches, fellow athletes and opponents.
  • Inform the coach of any injury as soon as possible.
  • Inform the coach if you need to leave the site early.
  • Inform the coach if you will not be attending a training session.
  • If you are selected to compete for the club have the courtesy to inform the team manager/coach if you will cannot attend in good time, not at the last minute.
  • Continually be thinking about how you can improve your skills after training and competition – please ask for support and help if you need it.
  • All Club members have a responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and promote equality of opportunity.
