Mentoring Programme

This Friday see’s another step in the development of our club riders. Our rider mentor scheme starts with our more experienced riders working alongside the new/younger riders at the club to help build a great support structure and help develop all the riders. The session will run 6pm – 8pm with the first hour concentrating on mentoring and the 2nd hour an opportunity for riders to put things into practice. Costs are £2 per rider and riders are required to book in on 07584088451. We encourage both riders who wish to be mentored and riders who wish to mentor the younger/new riders to be part of this exciting new project

Club Membership & Charges for 2015-16

Preston Pirates Charges for 2015

 

Balance Bike Coaching   (All Welcome) £2
Coaching (All Welcome) £2
Gates Members £2
Gates Non Members £4
Intensive Coaching (Members who race for Preston Only) £5
Racing £3
Membership Under 16 £8 + £1 BC Admin Fee
Membership 16+ £10 + £1 BC Admin Fee
Membership Family £20 + £1 BC Admin Fee

Current memberships expire on 31/3/2015.

From 2015 onwards the club will be accepting membership applications & payments online only. Although there has been no real time increase to any of our membership fees, to allow us to collect the membership fees online via the british cycling website there is an additional £1 admin charge which is payable to BC, and does not go to the club, this charge is to cover credit card handling costs incurred by the BC system. This is unfortunate but by moving the membership / subscription management online will mean a reduced burden on our volunteers, and a safer environment for our volunteers at the track as there will not be the requirement to hold sums of cash trackside.

On completing your online membership application/renewal the club will post your membership card to the address you enter online.

To join either click HERE, or go to the “Join Our Club” page on this website, or browse to www.prestonpiratesbmxclub.com/membership

Any member queries / issues can be sent to membership@prestonpiratesbmxclub.com, we will endeavour to answer all queries ASAP.

You will also notice that gate charges for non members will increase  to £4 from 1/4/2015.

Riders Membership details will be checked trackside, there will be an amnesty period until 31/4/2015, at which point if you have not renewed your membership the club will assume you no longer wish to do so and so will be subject to the new gate charges. However  you may renew your membership at any point after this, at which point the relevant charges will apply.

Thank  You
