There are two levels of British Orienteering membership:
- Senior – any member aged 21 or older on 31 December of the membership year
- Junior – any member aged 20 or younger on 31 December of the membership year
The British Orienteering Membership fees for 2013 are:
Senior member – £5.00
Junior member – £2.00
Families can continue to join/renew British Orienteering as a ‘Family’ but the membership fee will be made up of the sum parts. E.g. A Family containing two senior and one junior members will be charged a British Orienteering Membership Fee of £12 (2 Senior members at £5 + 1 Junior member at £2). If the Club or Association offers a Family fee, the family will be charged the Club/Ass family fee on joining/renewing. Otherwise the Club and Association membership fee will be calculated in the same way as the British Orienteering Fee e.g. the sum parts.
To become a member of British Orienteering you must also be a member of an affiliated Club and their Association. Members are therefore required to pay a joining fee for their chosen Club and Association as well as British Orienteering.
