Membership Vitalis

As a member of Vitalis, you can always come and train and attend our social activities. Per calendar year you only pay €40,- contribution to the association. Besides the contribution, the licence costs of the Atletiekunie will be charged, depending on your licence. With a recreational license of €20,- you can explore the club life well. When you also like to participate in official competitions of the Atletiekunie, it is convenient to take a competition license of €27,- . Are you new to the world of athletics? Then there are €5 administration costs from the Atletiekunie. Are you transferring from another athletics club? Then you can have your license transferred for €12,10 by indicating this at your old club. If you remain a member of your old club, it is good to know that you can only have your competition license with one club.

Will you become a member in the period September-December? Then you can become a member at a low rate! The Vitalis contribution costs €14,- and the Atletiekunie license costs are 75% cheaper. Administration or transfer costs remain the same. After this, your membership will automatically be converted to an annual membership.

Are you an exchange student in Groningen? Then you can take a half-year membership that runs concurrently with the college semester from September 1st to February 1st or from February 1st to September 1st. The Vitalis contribution costs €26.50 and the Atletiekunie contribution costs €14.00 for two times a short-term membership. Don't forget to mention your choice when you sign up!

Your membership at Vitalis will be renewed automatically. If you want to cancel your membership, you can send an email before November 19th per calendar year to secretaris@vitalis.org. See also: https://www.vitalis.org/pages/unsubscribe.

Trial training 

To get a good impression of the sport and the association before you decide to become a member, you can join a free trial training up to four times at Vitalis. You can schedule a trial training via secretaris@vitalis.org with your preference about a training group, part, or your broader interest in the sport. You can find all training groups and times at Training groups - GSAV Vitalis .

ACLO-card

Vitalis is affiliated with the ACLO, so like every other student sports association in Groningen you will need an ACLO-card. You can buy an ACLO-card per academic year for €59,95 or per semester for €49,95. You can buy your ACLO-card with your student account at www.aclosport.nl or the front desk of the Sports Center at Zernike. As a member you are required to purchase this card directly, as stated in our Internal Regulations.

Direct debits

The payment of your membership and other fees is done by automatic collection. This automatic collection happens five times per year. The first direct debit, which will take place around February, will collect the membership fee and license fee. If you sign up at a later time in the year, this will be included in the next direct debit. The direct debit also collects the costs for clothing and merchandise, participation in activities, competitions, training weekends, club weekends, etc. No later than two weeks before the direct debit takes place, you will be informed of the direct debit with a cost overview via e-mail. You can also find this cost overview in your Vitalis profile at all times.

Introductory period

Especially for all new students Vitalis organizes the introductory period in September. This gives you a good impression of what Vitalis has to offer in three weeks time. Participation in the intro period is free of obligations and costs only 10 euros. For the full program of last year's intro period take a look at the Introduction period 2021! - GSAV Vitalis.
