Membership Term

It appears there might be some confusion among the playing population about what the 'membership term' entails. Here's a clear breakdown of the concept and details that can be communicated to members:

Understanding the 'Membership Term'

1. Definition:
• The 'membership term' refers to the specific duration for which a member's subscription is valid. This is typically a fixed period, BSRFC membership term is seasonal, within a predefined timeframe.
2. Duration:
• Seasonal Membership: Covers the rugby season, often from September to May. In the case of BSRFC we extend our membership up to the AGM, normally held in July, unless you are a touch player, where it will last up until the start of the next season.
• Half-Season Membership: May be offered for late joiners, covering half of the regular season.
3. Start and End Dates:
• The 2024 rugby season membership is valid from September 1, 2024, to the AGM in 2025.
• Members will be able to purchase memberships from a date specified after the AGM, possibly as soon as August or as early as July 2025.
