What you need to affiliate as a club:

  • A copy of your Club Constitution. The club constitution is basically the guideline and rules by which your club will be run and includes all provisions for memberships, disciplinary matters, the committee and meetings etc. The NSW Office of Fair Trading has guidelines on how to write your constitution.
  • A copy of your Club's Certificate of Incorporation. 
  • Your Risk Management Plan. This needs to be a comprehensive plan which shows that you have practices in place for assessing and identifying possible risk and that you have a risk management action plan.
  • A certificate of Currency for Insurance if not using the EA insurance.
  • Completed application form

Once they have been approved your club can begin to run official events. Ensure that you give us a contact person so that we can let you know straight away if there are any problems with your application or need more information. Remember to check the current Scale of Fees for the cost of affiliation, please also note that there is an extra cost for running more than one discipline.
