The Bulk Membership option has been brought in by Independent Gymnastics (IGA) to give clubs a reduced admin option for non-competitive gymnasts that don’t enter IGA Regional or IGA National organised events by IGA.
Gymnasts registered via the Bulk Membership option, will still receive the benefits of the included insurance, but will receive a reduced membership fee based on the number of gymnasts being registered. They will not receive their own membership profile with their own unique membership number.
Clubs MUST keep accurate records of participants attending sessions as they may need to provide further details in the event of a claim.
How does Bulk Membership differ from Full Gymnast membership?
Those who are registered through bulk membership will not hold Full Gymnast membership and would not be eligible to enter any IGA Regional or IGA National competitions organised by IGA.
Gymnasts who are registered under bulk membership but wish to enter an IGA Regional or IGA National competition would need to upgrade to Full Gymnast membership. There is a small fee for this upgrade.
Applying for Bulk Membership
Bulk membership is charged in brackets based on the number of gymnasts you are registering.
1 – 100 gymnasts – £15.99 per gymnast
101 – 250 gymnasts – £15.49 per gymnast
251 – 500 gymnasts – £14.99 per gymnast
501 + gymnasts – £14.49 per gymnast
To comply with the insurance requirements which enable us to offer Bulk Membership clubs MUST submit a list of gymnast’s names and DOB of those being registered under the Bulk Membership option. Clubs must register each new gymnast and cannot change the details of someone who has left for a new gymnast.
Clubs wishing to register gymnasts under the Bulk Membership option can purchase this scheme through our IGA Online store, enter the number of gymnasts that you wish to affiliate and pay online or you can request an invoice. Please send your Bulk membership list to: email@example.com
Once payment has been received and the Bulk Membership list and a payment confirmation will be uploaded to the club profile (accessible via club admins). Should payment not be received those registered under the Bulk Membership option will not be covered until payment is received.
Upgrade a Bulk Membership gymnast
To upgrade a gymnast who has been registered under the Bulk Membership option, clubs will need to contact IGA either by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Those registered under the Bulk Membership option will not have their own profile on the IGA portal, to begin the process you will either need to provide us with the Name and Date of Birth of the gymnast wishing to have upgraded membership. You will then need to provide us with an email address. This can either be an email address for the gymnast/parent/guardian or it can be the email address for the club.
With the information provided, a member of the IGA team, will generate a profile for the gymnast on the portal and add an upgrade membership, an invoice for the upgrade will then be sent to the club.
Bulk Membership upgrade fees
The upgrade fee from Bulk Member to Full Gymnast Member will be based on the number of gymnasts.
1 – 100 gymnasts – £1.00 per gymnast
101 – 250 gymnasts – £1.50 per gymnast
251 – 500 gymnasts – £2.00 per gymnast
501 + gymnasts – £2.50 per gymnast
