Maldwyn Harriers Junior Membership

Organiser's Description


It is the time of year when new and old memberships are due and we need to ensure we have the correct contact details for athletes. Membership provides insurance for athletes and the eligibilty for all athletes to take part in licensed events, Regional and National Championships. Athletes will be registered with Welsh Athletics and will be issued a registration number which may be required to enter some competitions.

The membership fee for young people in full time education is £17.50 and we pass on £12 of this amount to Welsh Athletics with the balance going towards the running costs of the club. Due to costs in setting up this facility there is a 4% charge which equats to 70p

For families who register more than one child at a time there is a discount of £2.50 per athlete which will be automatically calculated in the shopping basket.

There is a nightly charge of £2 which then goes towards the hire of the facilities.

When athlete competes for the club then they are required to wear a club vest. These can be purchased from the club or we do have a small supply which we can loan out at certain events.

A variety of pieces of training kit can be purchased from Constructiv clothing at

Further information can be obtained from our junior membership secretary, Chris Copus or any of the club coaches or follow our Facebook page at
