  3. In the Membership Tab, click “Add Membership” in the Club Membership Section

    1. Adult/Student/Junior memberships are all in the form of a Monthly Subscription and will auto-renew each month
    2. Other Membership such as Student-Vacation and Coxing are Yearly Memberships which can either be purchased as one-offs or as a subscription
