2018/19 Season Membership Fees
Membership fees should be paid before our AGM on Sunday, 22 July 2018. Memberships not renewed by 31 July 2018 will be archived and access tags deactivated.
This Season, fees allow for reduced gym fees for active members. To alleviate some of the burden of a slight SLSA membership increase, the Club will subsidise part of the cost, if you renew membership on or before 15 July 2018.
