About ... Membership

Membership Types

There are numerous membership types, all are based on how old you are and whether you want to race of not. Different types have varying benefits (see the summary table below).  If you regularly want to participate in SCUM events we recommend that you choose the 'race' option as it will be more cost effective over the year; it is of course up to you.  Here's something that can help you decide ...



For more details on the options and the associated cost for each, please see the MTBA website here.  NB: There are also family discount options ...


To use the NSW Government's Active Kids Program Voucher for SCUM and MTBA Membership please contact one of the committee members and we'll help you with the appropriate paperwork.  Unfortunately vouchers can not be used online.


MTBA have also introduced a Member Benefits program where members can access 100's of discounts and lifestyle options from a varied group of organisations - check it out here.



The Club Fee component of the membership cost is only $10.00 (as at July 2019); the MTBA cost varies depending on the options you choose.  You can join SCUM by a number of methods, but the quickest and most convenient is to:


1.  Use the online system provided by MTBA (Mountain Bike Australia)Make sure to choose SCUM as your club.


As a bonus, MTBA have a free 8 week trial (conditions apply); the trial is only for temporary period so check the MTBA website to see if it's still available & for more details (click on the images below).




2.  Sign up at any SCUM event (please pre-fill this form).



3. Complete and scan the form and email it as a .pdf attachment to secretary@scum.asn.au



4. Your final option is to post the form to:

PO Box 527
NOWRA  NSW 2541.


Make out cheques or money orders to: South Coast United Mountainbikers Inc. for the MTBA amount (for the relevant amount click here), plus the Club fee of $10.00.



If you are using the Cycling Australia, BMX or ADCC value add option, a photocopy of your current Membership must accompany your application form and if you are value adding after 1st October you must have a Membership from January the following year.



If all this sounds a bit confusing, simply come along to one of our events and we'll assist you to join on the day; bring your smart phone if you want to take advantage of the FREE 8 Week Trial.
