Sevenoaks Rugby Membership 2016/17 - our system explained

If you find our membership system complicated, then help is at hand with the details below.  

The Junior players' payment structure this season has changed. There is a flat rate of £150 for up 2 adults and 2 children. So families with more than one playing child pay less than last season. While the rate for families with only one playing child has gone up from £120 in 2015, now the system registers both parents/guardians as formal members together with the new benefits membership brings (compared to one last season).

The rates compare favourably with other local sports clubs and rugby clubs. 

If for any reason the financial cost of playing rugby in terms of these membership fees or the kit involved are deterring your or your child's participation, then please raise this in confidence with your team manager, head coach or any one of the Management Team.

We also ask that membership questions are directed in the first instance to your team manager or year group head coach, and only once you have read through the following.


Membership rates 2016/17

Senior Playing member - £135 discounted to £110 if paid before the end of October 2016 – plus Players’ Match fees - £5

Student Membership (U18-U21 in education) - £50

Family Membership - £150

The same rate applies for up to 2 x Non-playing Adult Members & up to 2 x Junior Playing Members. The rate is £150 for an immediate Family regardless of whether the family membership comprises: 1 x Adult + 1 x Child, 1 x Adult + 2 x Children, 2 x Adults + 1 x Child or 2 x Adults + 2 x Children. 

  • Membership for additional children in the same immediate family is £25 per child. 
  • Additional non-playing membership for adults in the same immediate family is £50 per adult.

Families with more than one playing child are linked in the system to the youngest player. The reason for this is that ideally and in practice, the youngest player will track through our year groups and be the last child in the family to need their membership status changing to a Student rate, and a different set up, when they reach the Under 18s. 


The system is set up in this way to enable our Club to track a unique entry for each playing and non-playing member.

NB The PaySubsOnline system is not as intuitive as Amazon. As an off-the-shelf online membership management system, designed to remove the paper trail and bureaucracy for members and administrators at many Clubs like ours, it does the job.

The £150 Family membership total is presented in the Pay Subs Online system as follows:

  • £50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Lead Member)
  • £50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Spouse, Partner or Carer)
  • £25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (First Child)
  • £25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (Second Child)

The £150 cost is levied regardless of the number of member slots you wish to take up, IE ff you take up fewer than the maximum, the rate is still £150.

Additional Non-Playing Members / Charges in the same immediate family:

  • Third or fourth Non-Playing Member (Spouse, Partner or Carer) £50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Spouse, Partner or Carer)

Additional Junior Members on a Family Membership in the same immediate family:

  • £25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (Third Child)
  • £25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (Fourth Child)
  • £25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (Fifth Child) 

New Membership Cards this season

New this season, we will be issuing Membership Cards. They will secure you a range of Club-related discounts.

They will be issued to Adult Members only and replacement Membership Cards (to replace Lost or Stolen Cards) will be £5 per Card, so please look after them; the replacement cost is a deterrent not a money spinner.

Please note that Families with only one Child or Adult Member, will have added to their membership profile:

  • 1 x "unallocated Child" 
  • 1 x "unallocated Adult" 

Still puzzled? We're not surprised... here are a few examples to help explain further:

Wilkinson Family Membership:

£50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Lead Member) - Nick Wilkinson
£50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Spouse, Partner or Carer) - Unallocated
£25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (First Child) - Henry Wilkinson (U13)
£25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (Second Child) - Unallocated
------------

This means that, at a later date, we could add Mrs Wilko 

£50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Lead Member) - Nick Wilkinson
£50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Spouse, Partner or Carer) - Joanna Wilkinson
£25 - 1 x Junior Playing Member (First Child) - Henry Wilkinson (U13)

------------
£150 - Total
Then, at a further later date, add Lottie Wilko (as second Junior Member):

£50 - 1 x Non-Playing Adult (Spouse, Partner or Carer) - Joanna Wilkinson
