Please be aware that unless you have correctly completed and returned your club re-affiliation paperwork for 2016, your club will not be insured. We are unable to make any exceptions to this ruling as our underwriters will not accept claims made if the correct paperwork has not been submitted and received at our NSRA offices.
Please note that if you have already submitted your renewal paperwork, your club will be covered by our insurance, providing this is complete and correct. Any slight delay you may experience in receiving confirmation of your renewal is due to the Christmas / New Year break and the resulting volume of work we have to process.
To avoid unnecessary telephone calls and if you have yet to send in your renewal paperwork, please refer to the letter sent to you in October 2015, detailing the relevant forms for completion, the information required and the club renewal fee payable for 2016.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding during what is for us a very busy time of the year.
If you need another copy of the forms, all 2016 membership forms can be downloaded below:

The NSRA has identified that there is a need to review and probably amend the direction it is taking if it is to guarantee its longevity. A decline in the number of members and affiliated clubs and competition entries has necessitated this review.
The review will be part of a multi stage process throughout 2018 which starts with a series of workshops being held over the weekend of 27/28 January 2018. The Association is asking for individuals to put themselves forward to be part of this first stage review of both the Membership Structure and the Structure of Competitions and Events.
