Athletic Club Achieves Success Despite Lack of Indoor Winter Training Facilities.

Volunteer Workshop

The Club is desperate to increase its number of Volunteers to improve the efficiency of the Club and reduce the workload of those who are already volunteering. There are many different volunteer roles which need filling and there are many in the Club who would have the necessary skills to fulfill those roles. Therefore, you are invited to a Workshop on 5th March in the clubroom 6.30-8.30pm. Free refreshments throughout.

Membership Renewals 2019

In our most recent committee meeting we discussed split payments for membership and how this can be implemented. After some discussion, we came to the decision that due to fees needing to be fully paid by the last training night in April we would start taking subscriptions from the first training night of February. This means payments can be made across the month of February, March & April either in full or over 3 installments.

Failure to be fully paid by the last training night in April will result in losing all privileges of being a Derby Athletic Club member (use of track, clubroom and competing for Derby AC in any league or open competition).

Due to inflation of track fees and an additional affiliation fee to Northern Athletics the committee has proposed an increase in membership fees for the AGM to take place in March 2019:

  • Under 11 – £96
  • Under 13 → Masters – £126 + £15 EA Registration
  • Away Membership (over 30miles away from Moorways) – £63 + £15 EA Registration
  • Second Claim – £126
  • Family (living in same household) – £260 + £15 EA Registration per Athlete
  • Regular Volunteer – £15

Each membership fee will increase by £20 in the event of not being fully paid by the last training night of April.

Please return a Renewals Form and payment to the membership desk on a Tuesday or Thursday evening before the end of April.

If you do have any queries about membership please do contact the membership officer or your coach.
