Individual member registration

Members affiliated with a full member club (athletes, coaches, judges, staff and members)

Full member clubs must register every individual member in order to maintain membership with GBC. Failure to do so may jeopardize insurance coverage and may result in non-renewal of membership with GBC.

Membership may be managed either online through a designated registration program or by manual registration forms, but must be submitted to GBC electronically.

Keeping membership records 

Records of registration (for minors) including participant lists must be kept secure until the children reach age 18 and then at least three years after they are of age in case of insurance claim.

Records of registration for adults need to be kept secure for seven years, similar to financial records.

How to Register Individual Members

Individual member information must be sent to GBC in an excel spreadsheet. See the registration categories (2016-10-01) and registration template for details.

The following fields and formats are mandatory:
    1. First name
    2. Last name
    3. Birthdate (dd-mm-yyyy)
    4. Address, city, province, postal code
    5. Home phone number
    6. Gender
    7. Discipline, level, sub-level, role
