Membership Fees have not risen since 2015, when England Athletics were charging just £10 per athlete. Since this time the EA Affiliation has steadily increased to the new £16 fee. We have taken the hit over the last 4 seasons of the EA rises, but now feel the need to increase fees in order to address these continued increases, as well as the shortfall in income over expenditure which was presented at the recent club AGM.

Training Fees
Training fees will be set to £2 across the board, regardless of session, age, or discipline, for all members from 1st January 2020. A new higher non-members rate will be introduced very shortly, as we have found that some athletes are training whilst not being members of Colchester Harriers. We will have random spot checks in operation from the new year to check athletes are members when they arrive at club. Whilst individuals are trialing at the club, they will be able to pay just £2 for those three taster sessions.

We are still aiming to introduce bulk payment incentives before the new season commences, to allow members to pay upfront and benefit from a discount, the amount that they save depending on how often they train.

Kind regards,

The Committee
