Seniors (age 17 and over)

You are welcome to come along to 3 free taster sessions to see whether you will be happy at the club, but please use the 'Apply now' link below first, as for obvious  health and safety reasons we need to get a few details from you (emergency contact details etc.) which will be kept securely.

All athletes must be members if they wish to continue training with and competing for the club after the 3 free sessions.  Please take a look at the information on our training pages to see which sessions you would like to attend.

Once you have completed the 3 sessions our annual subscription is £45, or £35 for full-time students and unwaged. We also have some other discretionary rates and a financial hardship scheme. Membership includes entry to Withdean Stadium on training nights (Wednesdays 5.30pm-8pm), your Brighton Phoenix running vest the ability to book swim sessions and UK Athletics registration fee.
