I asked this question the other week.

what is the minimum age for club membership and BCA

Just thought I may add my little knowledge on this front, if it helps. Last year, as an under 18, I payed half price for BCA but it required me to be with parent or guardian at all times. That's all I know :-) im sure there are better sources though :-D

Dan, I don't know about this but, happily, we have a resident expert who is in the "thick" of the BCA - our very own guru - Les W ...

Perhaps Les could clarify the position when he spots this thread .... ?

Ian, Tim posted a link to info on the BCA site. not really expecting anyone else to be "responsable" for him on trips, and seen as he doesnt drive, i cant see him doing many trips without me, but if the club would be happy to offer him membership, and BCA can offer some kind of green card, i'll get him joined up.

He's pretty keen to do a few more trips, and i'm happy to take him, and in some kind of effort to make me look to be trying to be a responsable parent, i really should get him in a club and stuff.

most family members think i just go f'ing about in dangerous disused and abandand mines, so in an attempt to show them i dont do that at all (or do i?) i'll get him a club mambership and some proper kit

Dan,

We would love to have him as a member and is he very welcome to join.

As his parent and guardian you have a legal duty of care for him (no worries there) - is the discounted BCA insurance I don't know about :)

BCA Membership is discounted by 50% for students in full time education or under 18s (£8 for the year but reduced each quarter).

british-caving.org.uk/?page=122

If you want BCA's publications, or to join BCRA (and why not?) then you should join BCA as a DIM. BCRA membership is free to students and under 18s...
This works out as £16 but you get your own copy of BCA's Annual Handbook, occasional Newsletters and Speleology (allegedly three times a year...)

so, if he just joins through the club, it costs £17 for the insurance, if he joins as a direct individual member, it costs £16, but he gets the free publications..

to be honest, it just sounds easier to give ian some money and let him deal with it :D

If he joins through the club (CIM membership) it is £8 per year.

If he joins as a DIM it is £16 but with BCA's publications and FREE BCRA membership as well...

Hi Lestyn,

Hopefully the membership process will be easier in the new year after we have had the AGM (second week in Jan) but for now you need to complete a membership form (from the secretary) which I can email to you.

Can you e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. please and I will email the membership form back to you.

Subs are £37 (£20 club subs and £17 BCA insurance) unless you are a student in which case it is £28 (£20 club subs and £8 insurance)

Regards,

Ian Adams
(Secretary)
