South Australian
Masters Athletics Membership

Membership is open to anyone aged 30 or above. There are a number of categories of membership; Full, Country and Social membership. Discounted rates for Full membership apply to Couples and those eligible for Concession. If a new member* joins at the end of the summer season, pro-rata membership fees may be applicable. See below for details of membership registration.

Recommending New Members Incentive**
An existing financial member will have their next SAMA membership renewal discounted by $5 for every new member* (or by $10 if the new member is aged under 40) referred by 31 August each year.

*A new member is defined as someone who has not been a competing member of SAMA for the past 5 years. **The name of the referring member must be specified during registration of the new member.

The SAMA membership year coincides with that of Athletics SA (1 October – 30 September).

SA Masters Athletics membership is due for renewal on 1 October 2023. SAMA Membership fees are unchanged from those that were applicable for the 2022-23 membership year.

Membership applications and renewals for the 2023-24 membership year, together with the payment of fees, should be done online using a secure registration portal (click on the button below).

The portal is now active for 2023-24 registrations.

This is our preferred method of registration (no need to complete a separate membership form). Payment must be made by Credit/Debit Card (all major cards accepted).

Once the portal has opened, please select either the NEW MEMBER or RETURNING MEMBER option, and then follow the instructions provided to select the appropriate membership type for yourself.

All financial SAMA members have Basic ASA Membership and are eligible to compete in the ASA Summer Track & Field Season with payment of applicable entry fees. For an extra annual fee, individuals may choose to upgrade their ASA membership to Gold in order to reduce the cost per day/event when competing in ASA competitions and championships (for details see the Programs page).

If you have any membership questions please email the Registrar.
