New Members

Come join us!

We have a wide range of coaches and sessions to suit most needs, and we welcome new members.

If you or your child is interested in becoming a member of our athletics club, please contact us on 0113-3951500 (6.30pm-8.00pm Tuesdays or Thursdays only) and ask to speak to a club representative. Alternatively please contact us via the Contact Us link.

If your child is in School Year 4 or 5, and interested in athletics, they may be interested in joining the Leeds Lions. This is a dedicated session with a qualified athletics coach which is aimed at children between 8 and 11 years old.

Taster session (Trial Period)

For all new athletes we operate a 6-week ‘taster session’ (or trial period) to ensure the club is right for you before you commit to joining.

The 6 week trial period costs £15 which includes 2 training sessions each week over a period of 6 weeks (12 sessions in total).  Please note Leeds Lions have 1 training session per week over a period of 6 weeks (6 sessions in total).

If after the 6-week period you would like to continue, you will need to join as a Leeds City Athletic Club member.  This membership is renewed annually.

The cost of joining Leeds City Athletic Club for new members is as follows, renewable on 1st April annually (there is also an additional cost for training night subs);

Senior – 18 years old to retirement age £74
Young athlete – U17, U15 & U13 competition age £64
Under 11s or registered disabled £59
Senior athlete under 20 in full-time education £64

Associate – non-competing and non-voting £21

Prices for new members include one club vest. A family membership receives one club vest per family

The above prices include the compulsory annual registration to England Athletic (Current price is £15 per year) and annual levy to Northern Athletic (Current price is £2 per year) which Leeds City Athletic Club will register on your behalf.

There is also a cost for using the facilities each time you attend a training session (Known as training night subs).  These are linked to your annual membership.  When you pay your membership for the year, you will be asked whether you want to pay your training night subs using a one off lump sum along with your membership fee (by card) or whether you want to pay your training night subs monthly by standing order. Members who choose to pay by standing order will pay their first month up front along with their membership fee to allow time to set up a standing order from their bank to the club for the subsequent months.

Monthly payments are due by standing order on the 1st of every month for the full 12 months.  The cost of your monthly subs fee will depend on your membership status and have been calculated over a 40 week period (meaning we have allowed 12 weeks of non-training throughout the year (due to holidays, exams, other sports etc).

If at any time you cancel your standing order, your account will fall into arrears.  You will be asked by the club to bring your account balance up to date by the end of that month and set up the standing order for future payments.

If this does not happen by the 1st of the following month, your membership will be suspended and you will not be able to train at John Charles Stadium on club nights.  Each monthly payment missed will be added to your outstanding balance. Once your account balance is brought up to date and a new standing order set up for the 1st of each month, your membership will be reinstated.

If an athlete leaves the club with an account in arrears you will not be allowed to re-join the club or join another club without paying their account arrears.

Regular non payers may be asked to leave the club and have their membership cancelled.  If this happens, you will potentially have your England Athletic membership suspended and will not be able to compete as a Leeds City Athletic Club athlete.  If the member is in genuine financial difficulty, the member needs to contact the club to review their circumstances.
