Club Affiliation refers to the process of becoming a member club of the State Association. This process occurs annually and clubs are required to comply with National Affiliation Requirements.
There are two different types of Club Affiliation:
- New Affiliation: this refers to new clubs affiliating with the State Association for the first time
- Affiliation Renewal: this refers to a current club renewing their affiliation with the State Association
Accordingly there are two different Club Affiliation forms that correspond with these categories
New Clubs Affiliating
The Club Affiliation Form for new clubs is a blank document and requires all sections to be completed by the club prior to affiliation. For a copy of the form and more information please contact Michelle Francis, Gymnastics WA Member Coordinator , email@example.com
Existing Clubs Renewing
The Club Affiliation Form for clubs renewing their affiliation is sent to the club by the State Association Member with sections automatically completed using information from the previous year's affiliation (including Club Name, Contact Details, Legal Status and Venue Locations).
CLUB AFFILIATION MANUAL AND NATIONAL AFFILIATION REQUIREMENTS
Within the Club Affiliation Form there are National Affiliation Requirements as well as the Club Affiliation Agreement. By signing the Club Affiliation Agreement the club is declaring that they currently comply with, and will continue to comply with, the National Affiliation Requirements. In addition, the club is required to ensure they have read and understood the Terms and Conditions of Club Affiliation. All of this information can be found below.
To assist all clubs when completing these forms, Gymnastics Australia in conjunction with the State Associations have developed a Club Affiliation Manual. This manual provides valuable information relating to Club Affiliation including the Terms and Conditions of Affiliation, explanations and definitions for each Section of the Affiliation Form and contact details.
