Membership Enquiries

Initially, you don’t have to be a member of MAC and may attend any of the club training sessions and simply pay the appropriate training fees. We normally allow a period of approximately two weeks to give you time to decide whether or not MAC is for you. After this, if you decide to continue training with the club, you will be required to apply for membership.


 Training Sessions

The club has two sections to it – Track and Field (T&F) and Road Running (RR).  The T&F section caters for those aged 9 and up while RR caters for 18 and over.

Please see the following pages for more details about each section, including training dates, times and locations.


 

Constitution and Code of Conduct

Before applying for membership you should have investigated the benefits, privileges and obligations of joining MAC. The club insists on a certain standard of discipline from its members and in applying for membership you are committing to comply with this. MAC has the right to expel members whose conduct is unacceptable.

Please acquaint yourself with the various documents displayed on the club notice boards and which are accessible below before applying for membership.

If you are already a member of another athletics club then that is your first-claim club. If you subsequently join a second club, that is your second claim club.

Second claim members are welcome to train with MAC and take part in club social events. However, only first claim members qualify for points/places in internal club competitions or may compete in open competitions on behalf of MAC (unless by prior agreement of the management of both clubs and the event organisers). First claim members will always have priority in team selection. If you want to change your first claim club to be MAC, please complete this form and return to Scottish Athletics.


Family Membership

A 25% discount is applied to the cost of each family member where there is a minimum of three first claim members and this must include at least one senior.


Voting Rights

At the Annual General Meeting (and other MAC meetings), only fully paid-up first claim members of 15 years and older are eligible to vote.


Applying for Membership

Online membership is the fastest and easiest way to join. We use the secure payment system on the Entry Central website.

By applying online you are agreeing to the following declarations. These also apply to parents/guardians who are applying on behalf of juniors/children under 18 yrs of age:

Please note there is a £1.50 payment processing charge for senior memberships and a £1 charge for other categories.

If you want to use the family discount option (25% discount applied to each family member where there is a minimum of three first-claim members and this must include at least one senior), you can now join online.

  • Apply individually online via the EntryCentral website
  • Send an email to William Martin to let him know
  • He will issue you a cheque for the discounted 25%

Paper membership forms can be printed off below. Please complete and return to any MAC committee member with the appropriate fee.

In addition, from May 2011, Junior members pay their weekly fees by Standing Order. This can be setup through online banking or completing the mandate form and handing this in to your bank. Please use the members name as the Payee Reference.


What do I get for my membership?

New first-claim members receive a Motherwell AC vest. Everyone gets access to training sessions and club social events as well as sparkling wit and repartee from coaches and fellow members. Senior members can join training runs in scenic parts of Lanarkshire and occasionally beyond.

MAC competes in various events in different parts of Scotland, some of which involve subsidised travel. There are also discounts available in many specialist running shops on production of a MAC membership card. Members are entitled to discounted membership of the Boat House Gym in Strathclyde Park.
