Around membership

Who will receive a reduction of the membership fee?

School children, students, trainees, youth (up to 21 years of age), pensioners and unemployed persons.

Is there any further reduction of the membership fee?

Yes, if the annual membership fee is payed in advance until February 15th, there is an additional reduction equivalent to one monthly contribution. [So you pay only for 11 months and will get an annual membership.]

Do I have to pay for a whole year even if I become a member only in September?

Of course not, in the first year the fee is calculated pro rata temporis. [If your membership begins in September, you will pay only for September to December.] To get more information about the membership fees you can download the english application form or get in touch with our association's office. 

I am working in shifts and cannot regularly attend the training. Do you offer a membership for one day?

No, there is no membership for a single day. We do offer a “ten ticket coupon.” It can be purchased at our office (40€) and each training session (that you attend) will be marked.

Unlike our members, there is no insurance cover when participating in our activities and you do not have the right to vote in the department and the general assembly.

Due to legal reasons we cannot offer this choice for activities of our swimming department.

Is there the possibility of a free trial session?

We offer free trial training for anyone who is interested. Up to 4 times (consecutively) you can join our training without any costs or commitment. During these trial sessions, you are also accident-insured (this does not concern commute-related accidents). After this period, insurance cover expires. 

Is the membership fee the same for every sporting activity?

The membership fee is the same for all of our sporting activities. By paying the membership fee, you may participate in every sport as often as you like.

Do I have to contact the group in advance?

You should definitely contact them. In some cases the time and the venue has changed on short notice (in particular during the holiday season). It may also happen that the capacity is limited and/or special rules apply.

Where do I get more information concerning the different departments?

Have a look on our website (link) where you can find all of our departments by clicking on “Sportarten.” If you have specific questions, we recommend contacting the departments and their heads directly.

Does the membership at Vorspiel enable me to participate in competitions and tournaments?

Definitely! There are a lot of performance orientated athletes at Vorspiel and we support them as often as we could. As Vorspiel itself is a member of different sports federations, our members may participate in official contests. 

Do I have to be gay/lesbian to join Vorspiel?

No, it doesn’t matter if you are gay, lesbian, straight, trans*, inter or, or, or…. The main point is that you enjoy sports and our community.

How can I cancel my membership?

The termination of your membership has to be sent in writing and 6 weeks before the end of the quarter (17.02. or 18.02., 19.05., 19.08., 19.11.).

Do I have to cancel my membership explicitly?

Yes, a written cancellation notice is mandatory. Otherwise your membership at Vorspiel will continue. The termination of your membership is only possible at the end of each quarter and we have to receive your written cancellation 6 weeks prior to the end of the quarter (17.02. or 18.02., 19.05., 19.08., 19.11.).
