Alloa Gymnasts – New club registration system

For existing Alloa Gymnastics Club members we need you to register as members on a new membership system by following the instructions below, please note this does not apply to come and try sessions / attendees.

 

IMPORTANT: Changes to Membership / Payment Process at Alloa Gymnastics Club

YOU MUST REGISTER GYMNASTS BY 22/8/18

As the club grows the time taken to maintain the administration of members, class lists, etc and then also manage the standing order payments for members has grown significantly (all managed on a voluntary basis!).

The club has therefore taken the decision to move to an online gymnastics membership system, allowing easier management of the club members, classes and direct debit payments (instead of existing standing orders). Work has been going on throughout the Summer to make this transition as easy as possible.

We need all members to register online with the new membership system by following the steps below (please read through and follow the steps):

  1. You will need your British Gymnastics membership number, and bank account / sort code details.
  2. Go to the club member registration page by clicking here! 
  3. Follow the link for club member registration
  4. Complete the form, please tick the classes the gymnasts are currently attending only.
  5. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for any classes please detail these in the free text section at the bottom of the registration form
  6. When you move to the next page the registration details for each class will be displayed, please check these are correct then click submit at the bottom of the page (these details should automatically update)
  7. A list of the classes selected will then be displayed, please click submit if correct.
  8. You will then be asked to set up a direct debit with Alloa Gymnastics Club, please complete the form and submit.
  9. A confirmation email will be sent to you on completion of registration.
  10. Alloa Gymnastics Club will approve your registration, allowing you to login to a member account and access to update any details etc.
  11. Please cancel your existing Standing Order after you have registered!

 

The new membership system will take payments for the classes approved on the 1st of every month (starting 1st September) as per the existing class payment table.

The membership system will develop to allow easy communication from coaches to individual classes, online purchase of gymnast clothing, confirmation and payment of grading / competition events etc.

Please bear with us, although we are trying our best to ensure there are no hiccups it is inevitable that we may find some issues along the way (we will update with any issues on our facebook page)!

Please contact us on info@alloagymnasticsclub.co.uk if you have any queries.

Thanks!

The team at Alloa Gymnastics Club
