We are now accepting membership renewals and registrations for the 2020/21 year.
The coronavirus pandemic has had a big impact on our operations and activities and we’re aware that this has been a difficult year for our members who have missed going to their club. But through this unprecedented period, we have been inspired by our community’s proactiveness, staying connected when in lockdown before making the necessary arrangements needed to reopen and come back to the sport.
To help everyone to be able to return to gymnastics, we are focussing on how we can continue to keep our community active, healthy and safe, supporting our registered clubs and members in the best ways we can.
After reaching out to our clubs on an individual basis, and after consultation with our Club Stakeholder Advisory Group, we are introducing membership subsidies at the start of this membership year to support participants returning and joining gymnastics.
Up until 31st October 2020 (30th September in Scotland), both recreational and competitive members who renew, or new members who join, will pay a subsidised annual membership fee.
- Recreational members - £15 for 2020/21 membership reduced from £19 in 2019/20
- Competitive members - £35 in 2020/21 membership reduced from £43 in 2019/20
Any recreational or competitive members who join or renew after 31st October (30th September in Scotland) will need to pay the original price which was the same as last year.
We’re aware for our competitive members that competitions aren’t taking place at the moment but we will do all we can to recommence competitions later in the membership year. If you opt to purchase recreational membership for now you can upgrade this later in the year however, from 1st November (1st October in Scotland) the price of competitive membership will increase to £43 and the balance between the two membership types will need to be paid.
The fee for coach membership has also been subsidised for this membership year and this will apply across all four entry points for coach registration and renewal.
- Coach members - £62 for 2020/21 membership reduced from £78 in 2019/20

How to join for the first time
If you’re a new member with us, you will need to ensure that your club has completed their registration for the new membership year before you join. Please check with your club before joining.
- If you are under 16 you will need a parent or guardian to create your membership account.
- If you are aged 16 or 17, you can choose to create your own account or alternatively, you can ask a parent or guardian to do this for you.
- If you have celebrated your 18th birthday since 1st October 2019, you will need to create your own account with us.
If you want to renew your membership you can do this once your club has completed the registration process. When this has been done you will be sent an email with a link to renew your membership through your online account.
Please note: You will not be able to renew until your club has registered, but you will remain insured until the 30th November 2020, so don’t worry if you haven’t received your email yet.
