Clyde welcomes new members. Anyone with an interest in orienteering is welcome to the club. If you are a newcomer to the sport, there are experienced people in the club who can help to introduce you to the sport. People with orienteering experience are also very welcome.
If you plan to orienteer regularly you should join Clyde online through the British Orienteering Federation (which also includes membership of the Scottish Orienteering Association). These bodies are responsible for the management and development of the sport and need the financial support of participants. Most public funding is based on the sports membership numbers and participation, so it’s important that you are officially recorded as an orienteer.
The British Orienteering membership scheme has changed for the 2013 membership year with reduced prices. In addition, if you join now, new membership will not expire until the end of 2013.
The annual cost, inclusive of Clyde membership, is only £12 for seniors and only £2 for juniors:
Seniors are those aged 21 or older on 31 December of the membership year, with Juniors being those aged 20 or younger.
To join, complete the details online at this British Orienteering website page.
