Membership

For anyone racing regularly with SASA, membership is recommended. The 2017 membership fees are £12.50 per calendar year and includes Snowsport England third party liability insurance. Membership is required to take part in the Winter League and SASA training days.

SASA is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all its members. The club believes that it is important that members, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the club should, at all times, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others. Therefore, members are encouraged to be open at all times and to share any concerns or complaints that they may have about any aspect of the club with Lesley Gash, Welfare Officer
