Please scan and email the membership form and all waivers to firstname.lastname@example.org or you may give them in person to the president and Juniors Coach, Laurens DeJong. Family members will not be considered official club members able to participate in club rides and events until these waivers are received.
Please note, memberships lasts for one calendar year and should be renewed each January. However, due to the nature of cyclocross season we have built an “overlap” into the membership year. If you are joining AAVC for the first time and register between August and December, the following calendar year is included in that membership. After this, your membership will need to be renewed each January.
