If you are currently a Club/Membership Secretary for a club and wish to resign from your position you should first inform your Club Committee that you want to resign and then make sure that there is somebody else willing to take over your position before you resign. It is good club governance to always have a Club Secretary and Membership Secretary in post, where possible these should not be the same person.

To resign your position through the club management area of the myAthletics portal, just follow these steps:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal
  • Go to the Club Profile page and in the My Club section click ‘Change’ next to the Club Secretary or Membership Secretary
  • In the pop up enter the name or URN of the club member you want to take over from your position
  • Select the member from the list and click ‘Change’

An automated email will be sent to both yourself and the new Club/Membership Secretary advising them that their access to the myAthletics portal has been changed.

If you are an active member of the athletics and running community it is more than likely that you will already have a myAthletics account. Athletes, Runners, Coaches, Officials and Volunteers are added to the portal in the following ways:

  • If you book on to a coaching course through Athletics Hub you will have a myAthletics account created for you at the same time as you register on Athletics Hub
  • If you book on to an officiating course through Athletics Hub you will have a myAthletics account created for you at the same time as you register on Athletics Hub
  • If you enter an event on runbritain and create an account you will have a myAthletics account created for you at the same time as you register on runbritain

If you do not currently have a myAthletics account and you think you should have please contact your Club Secretary or Membership Secretary and ask them to add you as a member of your club so that you can access the portal. Once your club has added you to the portal you will be sent details of how to sign in.

If you think you might already have an account but can’t remember your details please use the Forgot URN and Forgot password pages to find out your sign in information.

The club management area of the myAthletics portal contains personal data on club members and as such only a limited number of people are allowed access to this.

To have full access to the club management area you need to be listed as the Club Secretary, Membership Secretary or Treasurer for your club. If you think you should have one of these roles please contact your club in the first instance to make sure that you have been added correctly to the club.

If you are a Team Manager, Coaching Coordinator or have another volunteer role at your club which requires you to have limited access to the club management area of the myAthletics portal please again contact your club to make sure that they have set you up with that role in the portal.

If you are still having problems please Contact the England Athletics Membership Engagement team

You can provide additional Club Committee members of your club with limited access to the club management area of the portal by assigning them the Team Manager role.

If you require full access for additional club volunteers please Contact the England Athletics Membership Engagement team as this may be provided on a case by case basis.

Membership types are important if you want to manage both your club membership payments and England Athletics registration payments through the portal. If you want to use Stripe to collect online payments from your members then you need to make sure your membership types are set up correctly and that you have specified whether they should include the England Athletics registration fee.

To set up different membership types for your club follow these steps:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal
  • Click ‘MEMBERSHIP FEES’ on the left-hand side menu
  • Click ‘Edit My Club Year’ to confirm what month your club membership year runs from and to
  • Click ‘Save’
  • Click ‘Add Membership Fee’
  • Enter the Name of the Membership Type e.g. Senior
  • Enter the cost of the membership in the second box e.g. £30.00
  • Tick the check-box if your membership cost includes the England Athletics affiliation fee - You should only tick this option if you want to include the EA registration fee in your club membership types and are tracking your club membership payments through the portal.
  • Click ‘Save’

The membership types that you set up will appear in the drop-down list of membership type options when you are adding new members to your club.

You can add and edit membership types at any time but you can only delete a membership type once you have removed it from any existing members.

You can delete membership types from your club by following these steps:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal
  • Click ‘MEMBERSHIP FEES’ on the left-hand side menu
  • Click the dustbin icon next to the membership type you want to delete

The membership type will be removed from your list of memberships.

Please note that you are not able to delete membership types that are currently assigned to your members, you must remove all members attached to that membership type before the type can be deleted.

You can edit the cost of your different membership types by following these steps:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal
  • Click ‘MEMBERSHIP FEES’ on the left-hand side menu
  • Click ‘Edit’ next to the membership type you want to change and update the details
  • Click ‘Save’

The membership type will be updated and all members with that membership type assigned to them will be updated.

You can change the membership type of individual club members by following these steps:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal
  • Click ‘PAYMENTS’ on the left-hand side menu
  • On the ‘Payments to Club’ tab you will be able to edit the membership type of individual members if their Payment Status is currently ‘Outstanding’
  • Click the membership type drop down on the individual member and select the membership type you want to update them to
  • A confirmation message will appear on screen to show that their membership type has been updated

If you want to change the membership type of multiple club members at the same time follow these steps:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal

  • Click ‘Update’ in the actions panel
  • A confirmation message will appear on screen to show that the membership types have been updated for the members.

If there are no membership types appearing in the drop-down list this means they haven’t been set up for your club, you can add these through the ‘MEMBERSHIP FEES’ page.

The membership types which show in the drop down list relate to the membership types that have been set up for your club. You can edit these membership types by going to the ‘MEMBERSHIP FEES’ page in the myAthletics portal.

If you have old membership types that are no longer in use you can also choose to delete these through the ‘MEMBERSHIP FEES’ page.

It is not currently possible to set up ‘grouped’ membership types through the myAthletics portal. There is a lot of complexity involved in group membership types, specifically determining how many people are attached to each membership type and which members should be charged the EA registration fee. Currently the portal cannot support this but we have this logged with our developers as something to look in to as a future enhancement.

When allocating a membership type to a member you might see an error message on screen which states that the membership type could not be updated for that member. This will usually be due to the fact that the membership type has been set up to include the EA registration fee but the member you have selected is not a competitive athlete.

You cannot assign membership types that include the EA fee to members who are not set up as competitive athletes.

To change the ‘athletic status’ of your member so that they are marked as competitive:

  • Click on their name from the ‘Payments to Club’ page
  • You will be taken to their profile, click ‘Edit’ in the top right corner
  • In the ‘Athletics Status’ column you can choose to change the member to ‘Competitive’
  • Click ‘Update’ to confirm the changes

  • Use the circles on the left-hand side of the page to select the members you want to email. Selecting the circle at the top of the list of members next to ‘Name’ will select all members on that page. Alternatively you can click 'Options' and then 'Select all' to select all members in the list
  • Click ‘Options’ on the right-hand side of the page
  • Click ‘Send Email’ from the list of options
  • Use the email editor box to compose your email:
    • The ‘From Name’ will automatically default to your name but you can override this and change it to your club name if you prefer
    • The ‘From Email’ will automatically default to the email address linked to your account, if you have multiple email addresses added to your account you can choose which one you want to send the email from
    • ‘To’ will populate with the members you have selected, you can click the red ‘X’ next to any members to remove them from the list
    • ‘Email Subject’ and ‘Content’ should be added before you send the email

Yes! We recommend that where possible you personalise emails to your club members by including their name or first name within your Email Subject or Content.

  • --lastname-- This shows the user's last name
  • --name-- This shows the user's first and last name
  • --urn-- This shows the user's URN

Your club emails are sent from the portal by our trusted email service provider and our delivery rates are constantly monitored to ensure that we are getting the best service. You can check whether an email has delivered to your members by:

  • Click on ‘CLUB EMAILS’ on the left-hand menu within the portal
  • Find the email you want to check delivered in the list
  • Click ‘Details’ next to the email
  • On the email details screen scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will be able to see a list of recipients and whether the email is marked as delivered and/or opened

If a club member has contacted you to say that they have not received your email you can check whether it was delivered by following the steps above and then ask your member to try the following:

  • Ask them to check their spam or junk folder
  • Ask them to ensure that they have your email address or the email address that you are using to send club emails from added to their ‘Safe sender list’ in their email account
  • Ask them to add noreply@englandathletics.org to their ‘Safe sender list’ in their email account
  • Check that their email address is listed correctly in the myAthletics portal and that it is the correct email account for your member

If you are still experiencing issues with emails not delivering to your members please Contact the England Athletics Membership Engagement team

As a club administrator you have the option to email your club members from the portal.

When you are composing your email to your club members you can choose what the 'From Name' should be. This will default to your name as the logged in user but you can amend this to show your club name or an alternative 'From Name.'

You can also choose the 'From Email.' This will default to your email address as the logged in user but if you have additional email addresses saved against your account you can use the drop down list to use an alternative email address for sending your club emails.

If you would like to add an alternative email address to your account to send emails from the portal please Contact the England Athletics Membership Engagement Team who can set this up for you.

We’ve had to make some changes to the way we send emails from the new portal as were having a few issues with emails not being delivered. Originally we set them up to send from the email address you selected in the portal, however we were getting quite a lot of emails that weren’t being delivered as the email providers we were attempting to deliver to were blocking them. This was because they couldn’t validate that the from email address was really sending from our server address.

As of Monday 12th April we have changed the set up so that all emails sent from the portal send with the from email address noreply@englandathletics.org but the reply to email address is the one that you enter in the portal so your members can still reply to you. This seems to have improved the deliverability of emails quite significantly as that from email can be now validated as sending from our sever.

We now just need to change the label in the portal so that when you select which email address to use it is labelled as the ‘Reply to email’ rather then the ‘From email’ this will be done as part of our ongoing enhancements to the portal.

In accordance with the UKA Rules for Competition, clubs and organisations are required to pay the annual England Athletics affiliation fee in April each year. Your club will be able to pay the club affiliation fee from 1st April each year and has until 30th April to pay the fee.

To pay your club affiliation fee online follow these steps:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal, if your affiliation fee is due you should see a notification at the top of the screen in the portal prompting you to ‘Create an Order’ or ‘Pay Now’
  • Clicking ‘Pay Now’ will automatically create an order for your club affiliation fee and direct you through to our secure, online payment gateway to enter your card details and complete the payment.
  • Alternatively click ‘Create an Order’ to pay your club affiliation fee via invoice. An order will be generated for your affiliation fee and any member registration fees that are currently marked as ‘Paid to Club’
  • On the Order Details page click ‘Invoice’ to generate an invoice for the order which can be printed from your browser
  • Payment can be made by completing a bank transfer using the following details:
    • Payee: England Athletics
    • Bank: Nat West
    • Account: 59025603
    • Sort code: 60 21 48

               Please reference the payment with your club name and invoice number.

NB. England Athletics cannot accept cash or cheque payments for orders. There will be an administration delay for processing payments received by BACS, we would encourage all clubs to pay online where possible to ensure that your payments are received and allocated as efficiently as possible.

In accordance with the UKA Rules for Competition, competitive athletes are required to pay an annual England Athletics registration fee to be eligible to compete in competitions held under UKA rules.

Clubs can use Stripe to request online payments from their members. If you are using Stripe you have the option when you set up your membership types to choose whether they should include the England Athletics registration fee. If you include the England Athletics registration fee in your membership type and send a payment request to your member then the England Athletics registration fee will be automatically transferred to England Athletics and you won’t need to do anything else. See the FAQ ‘How do I collect online membership payments from my members?’ for more information on this.

If you are using the portal purely to pay your member’s England Athletics registration fees and are not collecting or monitoring club membership payments through the portal or using Stripe to collect payments then you can pay for the athlete registration fees for your members by following these steps:

Clubs can use the online payment functionality which is built into the myAthletics portal to send requests to your club members to pay their club membership fees and EA registration fees online. Using the online payment functionality reduces the administration burden on clubs to collect payments in exchange for a small transactional charge of 1.4% +20p per transaction. The online payment functionality is integrated with Stripe, one of the most secure payment gateways used worldwide.

Once the online payment process has been completed, funds from the athlete’s payment are automatically transferred to the club’s bank account via Stripe. If the club has included the England Athletics registration fee in their membership, the registration fee will be automatically paid to England Athletics and the member will be registered to compete as soon as England Athletics receive the payment.

Your Club Treasurer and Membership Secretary will receive an automated receipt whenever a club member pays using the online payment functionality and you can keep track of your online payments through the Stripe reports which are integrated in to the portal.

We take our responsibilities towards the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults in athletics and running very seriously and require everyone in athletics and running who has significant contact with children and/or vulnerable adults to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (which has replaced the CRB check).

You can check whether your DBS check is up to date in your profile through the myAthletics portal, simply sign in to the myAthletics portal. You will be taken to the ‘MY PROFILE’ page and can view your DBS expiry date in the ‘Personal Details’ section:

  • If you have no DBS check or your DBS check has expired this will be shown in red as 'Expired' - please click on the link to 'Apply/Renew DBS' next to this to complete the online application. The link to 'Apply/Renew DBS' will only be available to you if you have a specific role within athletics and running that requires a DBS check.
  • If your DBS check is due to expire shortly the expiry date will be shown in amber - please click on the link to 'Apply/Renew DBS' next to this to complete the online application and renew your DBS before it expires.
  • If your DBS check is fully up to date the date and status will be shown in green - you do not need to act, there will be no link to access the online DBS process. It is, however, worth noting when your application is due to expire so you can act a few months before this. You will also be sent a reminder to renew your DBS when you get to within 3 months of it expiring.

If you have a coaching or officiating qualification you must have a valid DBS check in place in order to receive your licence.

To change your first claim club you need to go through the change of club process, a flow chart diagram of this process can be found in the ‘Useful Documents’ area of the myAthletics portal but the basic steps are listed below:

  • Sign in to the myAthletics portal
  • Once signed in to the myAthletics portal, click on ‘CLUB TRANSFER’ found on the left-hand side menu under ‘myMembership’. This will bring up the ‘Club Transfers’ screen. This will show any ‘In Progress’ or ‘Previous’ club transfers.
  • To start the change of club application, click on the ‘Start New Transfer’ button.
  • Enter the name of the new club you want to transfer to in the relevant space and enter any comments you want to send to the club you are wishing to leave. Once both boxes are completed, click the box in the bottom left-hand corner to confirm you have read and agreed with the terms and conditions for the transfer. If you are exempt from payment (U15’s & those returning after 3 years) you will be taken to the transfer complete screen.
  • Billing Information. Please complete the marked boxes for the address your payment card is registered to and then click the ‘Review and Pay’ button.
  • Check your details are correct on the next screen and tick the confirmation box in the bottom left-hand of the screen and then click on the ‘Go to Payment’ button to proceed to the next screen.
  • Select your payment method and enter the requested card details. Once entered click on the ‘Pay £10.00 now’ button and complete your change of club transfer.
  • A club transfer complete screen will appear giving details of the next stage of the process and contact details for England Athletics. You will be kept informed on the progress of your application by email.

Your transfer request will be sent to club officials at your former club. The club has 28 days to respond to this request. If this is your first club transfer application in 12 months, once approved by your former club, your transfer will be completed the next day. If this is your second club transfer within 12 months, your application will go to the Eligibility Committee on the 11th of the month, and will be cleared on the 1st of the next month (subject to competition ban)

If an athlete has already transferred clubs within the previous 12 months, they will be asked to give reason for their second change.

If you wish to compete for a new club in a discipline for which your first claim club does not affiliate, for example, you are a road runner who wants to take part in track and field, you can join another club as ‘first claim other’.

This is done by submitting an ‘Other Discipline Application Form’ to England Athletics. This form can be found in the ‘Useful Documents’ area of the myAthletics portal under ‘Help & Support’. You are only required to pay the England Athletics athlete registration fee to your original first claim club.

Senior and Under 20 track and field athletes may apply to join another High Competition Club for a specific senior track and field league competition in which their first claim club does not compete. The application can be found in the ‘Useful Documents’ area of the myAthletics Portal under ‘Help & Support’ and is the responsibility of the athlete to submit to UKA.

We take our responsibilities towards the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults in athletics and running very seriously and require everyone in athletics and running who has significant contact with children and/or vulnerable adults to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (which has replaced the CRB check).
