We receive enquiries all through the year and the stages of application take this into account, but school details need not be entered if you are making arrangements with us for out of term training.
If you have not already, please browse through the website and contact us by email or by phone with any queries or to arrange a meeting. From Summer 2017 athlete agreements (code of conduct declarations) have been included in the registration pack, to be read by racers over 12 and signed by those of 15 and over (also signed by a parent if under 18).
To register with the BSA, please complete and return the annual registration forms, below, including athlete declaration. This may be done at any time during the twelve months preceding attendance.
On receipt of forms, acceptance will be considered with discussion of programme including, support of the UK school, the most convenient dates, and availability of a place. (If the BSA is unable to offer a place, the registration fee will be refunded.) Note: attendance at summer, autumn or winter camps, or term time taster days, is a good way for all sides to find out about each other.
With agreement to proceed, normally soon after the start of the September term, when all new school year information is gathered. We will liaise between parents and school - always contacting the parents first - to ensure the student attends BSA with a manageable work programme.
The deposit (up to £400 per student) becomes a deposit against sundry expenses when the student arrives at BSA (eg. equipment purchases, pocket money, travel expenses etc.). In the normal course of events "sundries" are accounted for at the end of the season with any credit balance being refunded.
