Thank you for showing an interest in our running club. The club is open to all juniors from the age of 9 -18 years after which they will become senior members. As a junior member, you are expected to be responsible and behave in accordance with UK Athletic rules, adhere to our Code of Conduct and Club Policies that are available on our website page.
As a member of the Junior Section you are expected to represent your club at running events throughout the year. Failing to do so may invalidate your registration. If you are unable to attend training sessions, you are encouraged to inform coaching staff so that group sizes can be managed accordingly. If 6 consecutive training sessions are missed without a valid reason your membership will be terminated. If you believe special consideration should be given, please ask your parent or carer to email or speak with coaching staff.
Joining a running club is not to be taken lightly. If you resign, then a period of time needs to expire before you are allowed to run competitively for another club. If you have any doubts as to whether Rothwell Harriers is the club for you, please speak with one of our coaches before submitting an application form.
