This page contains more details about the membership categories and how to
join the club .
Basically there are two main
and Non Skating and these are further
split depending on age or frequency of attendance.
FULL, Under 16 and Student
If you want to skate at the club, compete in the club competitions or skate
under the Clubs name in open Competitions you need to be a
skating member. The main types of skating membership are
FULL , Under 16 and Student. The basic
differences are is that the under 16's and Students have a lower membership fee
but have no vote at club meetings which the more expensive Full membership has.
The weekly entry fee to skate on the club sessions for Under16's and Over 60's
is slightly cheaper than full members.
This category of membership is reserved for members who live further away and
cannot manage to attend the Club sessions very often and who do not skate at
Murrayfield Ice Rink on a regular basis. Associate Skating
members can attend up to 6 club sessions per
at the member price after which they are required
to upgrade their
membership category by paying the difference between the Associate Skater fees &
the Full, Student or Under 16 membership fees. NB the Associate skating member
is entitled to many (but not all) skating benefits as other skating members get
(e.g. skating for the Club, entry to competitions) but without the voting rights
that full membership get.

associate member of the club to a recreational membership. It is granted at the
discretion of the committee for those non skating members who have proven over
the years to regularly help on the rota at club sessions. If you no longer
assist at the club on a regular basis your recreational membership reverts to

Club Competitions, and social events . They benefit from reduced
