How To Join
Joining Cardiff AAC is very simple and all new members are welcome.
You need to be 9 year of age or older (no upper age limit) and must complete the application process. This can be done electronically on-line and, by clicking the APPLY TO JOIN button at the bottom of this page, you will go straight to the easy-to-use application form.
When you have completed the form, you will need to print a copy and either send it to the membership secretary or bring it to the club in person.
The membership Secretary is Mrs Kath Elias, 4 Bader Road, Llanishen, Cardiff CF14 5LN.
Naturally all members are expected to pay an annual subscription and these are shown below. There is also a one off joining fee of £15 for standard category members in return for which you receive an attractive, branded club T shirt.
Members are entitled join a suitable coaching group, to use the facilities of the club house, are eligible to represent the club in club teams and to wear the club’s distinctive competition vest.
