AoC Sport Associate Membership

Organisations which are funded to provide further education, but who are not further education and sixth form colleges incorporated under the 1992 Act, such as schools and training providers, can apply to take part in AoC Sport competitions as associates.

We offer league and cup competitions in 11 sports, organised by standard of play and geography to enable competitive, professionally managed and, where possible, localised playing opportunities.

Associates have access to the following benefits:

  • Opportunity to nominate players into trials for the England Colleges football, hockey and netball teams*
  • Discounted fees for AoC Sport and ECFA conferences
  • Inclusion in the circulation list of the e-newsletter which provides updates on development within the further education sector.

*Subject to an additional fee.

To become an associate there will be an annual associate fee of £350, which will entitle the institution to unlimited competitions, subject to payment of the individual entry fees.
