Membership criteria, categories and fees
Gymnasts can become members of British Gymnastics if they have been offered a place in a British Gymnastics registered club. Club can only register with British Gymnastics if they meet our high standards operating a safe, child-friendly environment, with coaches qualified to national standards.
From 1st October, gymnasts must join or renew their membership directly with us via a new online process. Previously, clubs processed the membership on behalf of the gymnast but due to changes in data protection regulation, this is no longer possible.
Annual membership details
For gymnasts, our membership year runs from 1st October to 30th September. We have different levels of membership available with associated annual fees. All current gymnasts will need to renew their British Gymnastics membership from 1st October. New gymnasts can join at any time during the year provided they have been offered a place in a British Gymnastics registered club.

We've made some changes to the price of individual membership from the 2019-20 year. Increasing our prices by any amount isn't a decision we take lightly, however for the last seven years, when our prices have remained the same, the cost of supporting and growing the community has increased. Many of these costs are out of our control, including rising insurance costs and the impact of inflation over the past seven years. Therefore, to enable us to continually strive to provide the best support, products and services, the price of individual membership will increase by £2 per member.
*Understanding our Competition Structures
Competitions that are part of the British Gymnastics National Development Plan (NDP) require Competitive Gymnast Membership. Click here to view the NDP Competition Structure.
For competitions outside of the British Gymnastics NDP structure please refer to the individual competition rules to determine the required level of membership.
