Competing & Changing Clubs

If you have never been a member of an Athletic Club, you will be eligible to compete for Brighton and Hove AC as soon as you have filled in an application form, paid the appropriate fee and been accepted.

If you have been a member of another club, you must resign from that club before joining Brighton and Hove, you must also complete a Change of Athletic Club form (available from the Club Secretary Tel 01903 813878).

NOTE: Athletes over the age of 15 may have to wait 9 months before they are allowed to compete for a new club (although with a good reason for changing clubs, such as moving to a new area, a long wait is unlikely). Athletes under 13 and under 15 are allowed to change clubs once during each age group.
