New members' nights

Focus first on encouraging existing members to re-join – this is important so that there is knowledge in the club of how it is run, the activities that members can enjoy and of course be there to welcome new members.

If the club has capacity to recruit new members, then the committee must put a system in place to: a) obtain the essential information about the new member and b) inform/reassure the new member (and parents if appropriate) about how YFC is operating during with the restrictions in place.

1. Firstly confirm the age of the new member enquiry – over 18 or u18

2.Confirm there is space for them to join

3. Before attending the first virtual or real meeting they must have received a e-pack of information:

  • A membership form and parental consent form/virtual meeting parental consent form if under 18.
  • Written information about how the club is operating and the Covid procedures that are in place including how virtual meetings are held
  • A Club Programme
  • Other information that you feel is relevant e.g contact information, county programme etc.

4. Clubs/Counties should state in their pack the subscription fee and detail what the fee covers – such as venue hire, insurance and membership to NFYFC. 

5 The new member must have completed and sent the membership form/parental consent form back in advance so that the lead officer can check the medical information and any additional needs and record the emergency contact details.

Whilst many YFCs like to hold new members evenings, this can only be run so long as the above has been completed first. We advise against ‘just turn up evenings’ as it would conflict with the Covid arrangements, If you do hold a new members evening think carefully about the activities that you will run, as you may not be able to run some of the normal team games.
