Club fees and examples

Saracens Club Partnership Logo

Medway Rugby Football Club operates a strict ‘Don’t Pay – No Play’ policy.

As proposed and approved at the AGM held on 24th May 2019:-

* The annual club membership fee per family families and non playing adults have increased slightly by £3

* The additional annual age group / section specific playing fees will remain frozen as below

As a result of the RFU Age Grade Competition review:-

* Age bandings are more becoming reflective of the education system with greater alignment of the transitions in clubs and schools

* U11’s become the last age group for mixed gender games, with U12 and U13 forming the transition format towards 15 a side rugby  – Starting with U14’s.

Club membership runs from 1st August until 31st July (see note 1) and is the sum of the Club/Family Membership PLUS any relevant Playing Fees.  See the examples link below.

Fee examples 2019-20

Note 1: For those joining the Club after 31 December 2016 the membership and playing fees are half what would normally be due in a full season

Note 2A: Family membership includes the lead person’s partner and any of their children under 18 years of age as at the start of the season (1 September ). Anyone over 18 at the start of the season is expected to join the club in their own right.

Note 2B: This reduced fee for Social Membership has been introduced as a pilot to encourage retention of parents when their children stop playing. The membership excludes the lead person’s partner and their children. Note that this price is per adult, so if a family with 2 parents both wish to remain members after their children stop playing, then the family club membership would be more cost effective for them.

Note 3: Families with more than two players in the Youth and/or Mini sections only pay for the eldest two playing children (U5s-U18s)

Note 4: Those paying the discounted rate must evidence their eligibility for the discount to their respective team manager.
