Second Claim membership
If you are already a member of another club which is affiliated to England Athletics, you can join Lewes AC as your Second Claim club. This entitles you to use the club’s facilities and coaching. You can also compete for Lewes AC as your Second Claim club, but only competitions where there would be no clash with your commitments to your First Claim club. For details see rule 3 of the 2012-2014 UKA Rules for Competition.
If you are currently a First Claim member of another club affiliated to England Athletics (or you used to be), and you want to transfer to Lewes AC as your First Claim club and be registered with England Athletics as such, then you need to complete the England Athletics ‘Change of First Claim Club’ form and post it to England Athletics with a printout of an email from an official of your previous club confirming that they accept your resignation as a First Claim member, and a cheque for £10. The form and a more detailed ‘Athlete’s guide to change of club’ are both available via the England Athletics club affiliation page.
If you want to transfer to Lewes AC as your First Claim club but become a Second Claim member of your previous club the procedure is the same, but you should ask the official from your previous club to explain in their email that this is what you are doing.
If you want to transfer from Lewes AC to another club, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an email confirming that we accept your resignation as a First Claim member. Then the procedure is the same as above.
