What do I need to do to affiliate my club?
Affiliating your club is easy but there are a few things that we need to see first.
A copy of your Club Constitution. The club constitution is basically the guideline and rules by which your club will be run which includes all provisions for memberships, disciplinary matters, the committee and meetings etc. See the Model Rules for Incorporated Associations from the NSW Office of Fair Trading for guidelines on how to write your constitution.

Once you have all of these things, send them in with your completed application form. Once they have been approved your club can begin to run official events. ensure that you givre 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.
