PWYC - Firstballacademy


FBA Membership Fees are based on a Pay What You Can (PWYC) system.  How else can we guarantee to be totally inclusive?  Offering PWYC membership ensures we are accessible to all!

The PWYC system allows members to pay a standard Academy amount or more if they can afford to – after all, we are offering some of the best quality coaching, opportunities and ongoing support around.  BUT, some members may not be in a position to pay Academy prices, if anything at all.  Natural talent is not based on your family’s wealth and we want to ensure our Academy Members are training and playing with some of the best potential around!

Our Academy Members are our FBA Family and we want everyone: members, families, sponsors and supporters to be fully invested.  Irrespective of your payment, from all members we expect:

  • enthusiasm
  • support of others
  • commitment to attend training and matches
  • help to keep our Hubs and grounds clean and safe spaces
  • total respect for one another

We are in this together and for the long-haul!

Once you have decided on your monthly fee, we would ask that you stick to it, but if your circumstances change, e.g. someone in the family loses their job, you may wish to lower your fee temporarily; or, if you are feeling flush (maybe no longer paying commuter transport fees!) then why not increase your payment and help support our amazing Academy!

These PWYC Memberships are for an initial 3 months period, giving you the opportunity to give it your best shot and for us to decide together if FBA is the right place for you.  At this stage we will also be able to assess whether you may be able to receive an FBA Scholarship toward coaching, kit and equipment.   So, what have you got to lose?  Sign up now – we can’t wait to meet you!

Remember, all of your membership fees go toward making FBA bigger and better, reaching more potential talent, making FBA as fun and competitive as possible for training and matches and generally improving the engagement and skill of our local cricket teams.  We will of course also accept donations and contributions, and sell kit, equipment and refreshments to help cover all of our running costs and outreach work. 

If you really want to show your support, pay a higher full membership fee as a Gold Plus Supporter, become a sponsor or talk to us about investing?
