Sports Association Membership

Before you are eligible to join any of the sports clubs you will be required to purchase Sports Association Membership (SAM) at a cost of £45 for the year*. This contributes to the cost of club activities, i.e. coaching, kit, transport, affiliations, insurance and much more. Please note that each club also charges a fee in addition to SAM. Club fees vary and are set by each individual club. If you are only here for one semester and wish to buy half year SAM, please email union.opportunities@uea.ac.uk with proof of your term dates, and this will be arranged. You only need to buy SAM once per academic year, no matter how many clubs you join, and when you've paid you will get a SAM sticker for your campus card. Your SAM sticker also entitles you to 10% off in the Sportspark Café. Club committee members also need to pay for SAM. For further information please contact Lizzie Payne (Elizabeth.Payne@uea.ac.uk) or visit the student union website. *must be purchased before joining any sport club.
