Sports Club Membership is now open.
Due the ongoing pandemic not all clubs are currently active. Each club is working towards a safe return to in person activities as soon as possible. This is likely to happen in a phased approach, following Scottish Government and national sports body guidance.
Current Active Sports Clubs: Athletics, Hockey (Mens and Womens) and Snowsports.
You can try any sports club activity once for free but after that you must pay the membership fee (Step 1) and joining fee for each club (Step 2) as outlined below:
Purchasing your ‘Sports Club Membership’ with GCU Students’ Association. This membership costs £15 and is a prerequisite to joining any Sports Club. The membership provides you with Essential Personal Accident Insurance and the funds from this membership are also used to support sports club activities by subsidising the cost of facilities, transport, equipment, coaching and competition entry fees.
Select the sports club(s) you want to join on their individual webpage and then pay the ‘Club Joining Fee’ for each club you want to join. NB Club Joining Fees are set by each individual sports club and can vary in price from £10-£40. Remember, you can join as many clubs as like.
