New BG Membership Renewal Process

As you know, joining our club includes becoming a member of British Gymnastics, the national governing body for gymnastics in the UK. Until this year, we have sent members’ details such as names, ages and addresses to British Gymnastics to allow them to activate personal member benefits for you, such as insurance and discounts, and to send out your membership pack.

From October 2017, to comply with new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we will no longer be able to pass on these personal details to British Gymnastics. We are therefore asking all members (or their parent/guardian if they are under 16 years old) to renew their British Gymnastics membership directly through the British Gymnastics website.

 

NGA Affiliation

We will still collect our club membership administration fee which helps to pay for the running costs of the club. MA, WA and GFA Squads have been contacted about this already, and for GFA and PS gymnasts the £10 affiliation fee has been included in the September block fee. Adult gymnasts will need to pay this from September, and by Monday 2nd October 2017.

 

British Gymnastics Membership

From 1st October 2017, you will need to go to the British Gymnastics website to complete your membership renewal/joining process. This process creates your vital insurance cover. After the 1st October, you will not be able to attend our classes unless that registration has been completed online.

The registration system on the British Gymnastics website is quick and easy to use by mobile phone, tablet, computer or laptop. British Gymnastics will activate membership and insurance cover immediately as well as sending your membership confirmation and membership benefits information by both post and email.

British Gymnastics will notify us when you have completed your registration. You will also be able to show us your receipt/confirmation email as proof.

We’ll give you more information to help you with this process before memberships are due in October. Thank you for your patience and co-operation with this change. Please bear in mind you will need to act quickly from the 1st October as your gymnast will need to be registered before they train in October.
