Registration is pretty simple and you get massive kudos from literally every other person in the world when you join. We are working on getting members a shed load of discounts, plus you get a nice little welcome pack no matter what level of membership you choose. We would tell you what’s in the pack, but if we did that, we’d have to kill you.
You can choose to be affiliated or non-affiliated and the pricing structure reflects this. You can choose to buy a vest or not buy a vest. Unless you sign up as legendary – then you automatically get one. Sorry about that. We promise not to make you wear it when competing at little Jimmy’s sports day (but we know you will).
Affiliated Membership runs from April year to year, in-line with the England Athletics membership calendar. It's a ball-ache, but that's the way they roll. For this reason, anyone joining BBRC as an affiliated member BEFORE April will not be affiliated with EA UNTIL April the following year. This way it does mean that you will then be affiliated for the full year; that's a full 12 months. YAY!
If BBRC is your first claim club, and you wish to become affiliated immediately for the rest of the current year, that's cool, but it will cost you and extra £16. You can pay for instant affiliation in the members section once you have signed up.
Sorry it's so complicated, we just want you wonderful people to get the most bang for you buck.
If you are already registered with England Athletics and would like to transfer your 'first claim' affiliation to us you will need to login to your myATHLETICS portal and from there start the Club Transfer process. Second claim members should join as Social Members and let our Membership Secretary know.
If you are joining from outside the UK welcome and we are sorry about everything. We would love to have you join us and we would love to send you the same welcome pack that our UK members get but it costs a little extra money. Once you have joined we will contact you to discuss shipping costs in a grown up way.
Managing Your Membership
Membership is pretty straight-forward. Once you've chosen one of the membership options above and clicked on one of the PayPal buttons you'll be taken to PayPal to set up the appropriate subscription. After you complete the PayPal checkout you'll be redirected back to our site to fill in your registration details.
You'll have access to the site for one year from the time of sign up and, if you don't do anything, the PayPal subscription will renew your membership and access to the site.
If you want to cancel it's simple; all you need to do is cancel the PayPal subscription. This will cancel future payments and stop your membership renewing. You'll still have access to the site and we'll still register you with England Athletics for the next April. Obviously if any of this is a problem just let us know!
