At Club training sessions all members must follow the instructions given by the coach or helper; disruptive behaviour will not be tolerated and the Club reserves the right to exclude from training any disruptive athlete.

The membership fees for Crawley Athletic Club cover the year commencing 1 February 2014 until 31 January 2015.
