The membership period is from 1 April of current year until 31 March of the following year. The form is available via each association at the beginning of each new membership year.

Please check your local association's registration form to find up to date fees. 

The purpose of the early bird registration is to enable those who are new to our sport or are returning after they had ceased to be a member to compete. To set records you must be a financial member for a minimum of 6 months. Once a Novice competitor has competed in one competition, you need to register to enable you to continue to compete.
