When you get to this page you will see the application form which has been embedded on the page. You can fill the form in on the website and the whole process can be done in 5-10 minutes. We have worked hard to make the process as simple as possible.
As you all may know the West Lothian Wolves Basketball Club is now a registered charity. As such we can benefit from Gift Aid on your membership subscriptions. There is a section on the bottom of the form that will give you the option for us to collect Gift Aid from the Tax you pay on your income. We collect all the other details we need within the registration form.
This decision is completely up to you, however the option is now there. Please do give it your consideration.
Subscriptions for 2017-18
Our detailed business planning for this season has indicated clearly that our current subscription model is not sufficient to meet our operational expenses of running our basketball club.
We have kept our subscriptions steady for a couple of years and now we need to up the subs across the board to cover a number of increases, which include: Increased Individual registration costs to Basketball Scotland; Increased Court Costs from WLC; Increased other Basketball Scotland costs (Refs, League fees); Increased number of National League Teams.
Our Membership numbers have plateaued and so it’s the same numbers who must bear the burden of these Operational Costs.
Should anyone wish to understand more the financial engineering behind our Operational and Capital finances please do attend our upcoming AGM.
Our Direct Debit process will automatically update you to the appropriate Direct Debit for 2017/18 and first payment will be taken in September. Please do not change your Direct Debit on Re-Registration.
The New Subscription structure is as follows:
Membership Type 2016/17 Subs 2017/18 Subs Social £10.00 £15.00 Senior £35.00 £37.50 Under 18 £30.00 £35.00 Under 16 £25.00 £32.50 Under 14 £25.00 £30.00 Under 12 £20.00 £25.00 Under 10 £15.00 £17.50 Student (New) £25.00 Family Discount Senior £17.50 £18.75 Family Discount Under 18 £15.00 £17.50 Family Discount Under 16 £12.50 £16.25 Family Discount Under 14 £12.50 £15.00 Family Discount Under 12 £10.00 £12.50 Family Discount Under 10 £7.50 £8.75
Your support is essential and we do feel we offer good value compared to other sporting clubs. Please do remember the family discount if you have more than one family member in the club.
We would love to have your continued support and look forward to see you (or your children) on the court this year.
