Joining your club

There are two ways clubs can add members. The first method is using the auto-approval link and the second is using an Apply to Join link on the club page.

Auto-approval link

To join your club using the auto-approval link, click the link that was sent to your club admin and follow the steps to sign in or sign up.

Apply to join

To join your club using the Apply to Join link, go to your club’s account page, and click the apply to join link in the right hand corner of the page. Once a club member manager has approved you, you will be added to the club and receive a confirmation email.

Accessing your club

After your club membership manager has approved your entrance into the club, you’ll see the club’s icon in your profile page under your clubs section.
