Memberships streamlined for 2018

The England Touch Association has announced a streamlined membership structure for 2018.

This streamlining has been implemented both to make the process more straightforward for members and to help the ETA administer what is a rapidly growing membership base.

From January 1st, 2018, there will be one flat price for full individuals, whether you are a player, referee, coach or medic. There will be no supplementary membership fees to add additional categories to your package.

Furthermore the ETA is confirming frozen prices for all club, league, and event memberships.

There is a small increase in individual membership prices for the first time in three years, but members are assured that all revenues are being invested into the ETA’s work growing the sport at all levels.

Full individual membership is required by all players, referees, coaches and medics wishing to participate in more than one England Touch event in 2018, including Touch Nationals and tournaments involving England’s Elite teams.

One-off membership is available for individuals wishing to participate in a single event in 2018, but this can only be ordered once in any calendar year.

Other notable membership benefits include:

All members are covered by Public and Products Liability and Professional Indemnity insurances; all individual members aged between 14 and 70 and resident in the British Isles also benefit from Personal Accident insurance.

Clubs have their DBS costs included, along with one complimentary place at a Level 1 referee course, access to other development days and specialist coaching from the ETA, and support from the ETA to promote their competitions and other events
