PPA...CSA membership

Recommended Posts

Thank TK, but here is the question then....you join PPA in July, but CSA runs from Jan to Dec....

 

So when you pay in July, are you only paying CSA license till end of December? Or are you paying till July?

PPA & CSA are two different organisations. You need to be a PPA member to get discount on PPA races (in the Western Cape) and get a bunch seeding. If you want to enter National or provincial races, then you need to have a CSA lisence (you need to belong to a club to get a CSA lisence).

It seem like that is a negative - I have registered with CSA and you would need to buy a domestic racing license for R350.

 

As build2race said, they are two different organisations, but I would have thought that we would have paid some sort of contribution to CSA.

 

Hope that helps!

 

Edit: I see PPA as my club on the membership card. I have not paid a thing and have received my membership card..... dunno what else is on the card that validates this as a racing card - does it normally have something under the 'CSA Membership' area and above the 'Place photo here' area?

Does this mean that every fun rider doing a long route should've a CSA member? Hence the extra R30 they want to charge us at every fu ride. ?

Dunno hey?! I registered with PPA so pay annual subs and don't have to pay the extra amount. I just went to go check - it doesn't say that it is a CSA fee. I think it might be a general admin fee for PPA?

 

Edit: sorry, I missed it - yeah - I see the CSA day licence of R35. I dunno what to say other than maybe it is included in PPA's amount.....

95% of riders need CSA membership (R75) - the other small percent need csa license to for national seeding and positions etc. PPA includes CSA membership (R75). I am not sure how the july - july vs jan - dec conflict will work. You will have to contact ppa for that

Is that why I just received my CSA membership card via email?

I didn't intentionally apply for CSA membership anywhere...

 

Another weird thing is that next to 'Club' on the card, it says '-Not Listed-'

Well Jan to Dec is 12 months, like July to June.... don't think there is a problem there.

Can anyone tell me, if you join PPA are you also a CSA member?

 

From PPA Website:

Cycling SA license fees: PPA has absorbed the annual CSA membership license (R75) on behalf of its members. Members only need to pay CSA if they wish to upgrade to a full racing license, which needs to be done through your cycling club. Note that cyclists who are not a member of an Association like PPA or do not hold a Cycling South Africa racing license, need to take out an additional R35 CSA day license for every timed event attended.

That is what I read,a nd wanted to know how they deal with it as the 2 years run separate...I join PPA in July and do not renew the next year, does that mean that will be an CSA member for a 1.5years?

I joined PPA middle of last year and just received an email from CSA that my membership for 2012 has been approved. So yes, it seems you will be a CSA member for 1.5 years if join PPA after June.
