EA Registration

Our membership secretary Steve Hirons has worked extremely hard in the past fortnight to ensure all new members have their England Athletics registrations renewed. Once a renewal is confirmed by EA each athlete should receive an email to that effect. If you are an active athlete and requested EA registration and do NOT receive a confirmation email in the next week or so can you please let Steve know.

Many thanks to Steve for pulling out the stops to get the registrations in.

EA are getting tougher

Please take note of this. UKA and EA are getting tougher this year with athlete registrations. I don’t know what the sanctions are to teams that have non registered athletes taking part in league fixtures but it isn’t worth taking the risk of individuals being DQ’d or teams losing league points because we have non registered athletes taking part this year. Please make sure you are signed up to HAC if you are going to compete in the junior comps, SAL or Vets league this year. This is the EA page http://www.englandathletics.org/clubs–community/club-affiliation/athlete-registration-2016  and this is our membership page if you haven’t signed up yet. http://www.hillingdonac.co.uk/shop/clubmembershippage.html
