The Academy fees are £25 per term for the six term school year. When young athletes reach the under-17 group (aged 15 and 16, school years 10 and 11) the club’s annual membership fee will apply. The Academy fee and the later older age group annual membership fee include free entry to the track on club nights, Saturday morning and when the club uses the indoor facilities at the Lewes Leisure Centre.

When academy athletes reach the under 15 age group a club vest is provided automatically as part of the academy fees. For the Academy athletes in the under 13 age group a club vest is provided free when competing for the club. For adults and under 17 athletes joining the club a one-off joining fee of £20 is charged for which a voucher is given which can be exchanged at Intersport of Lewes for a Lewes AC running vest.
