VRC Junior Membership is a great opportunity for children between the ages of 12-17 years to meet other young people and make lifelong friends, and learn about the racing industry.

Our Junior Membership Program offers young people a sense of belonging - they can enjoy the races and various social events in a safe environment that is alcohol and gambling free. 

When your child becomes a Junior Member, they join a Membership Program of exceptional value and enjoyment, and the opportunity to become Full Members once they turn 18 years old. 

VRC Junior Membership benefits:

  • Elevation from VRC Junior Membership status to Full Membership will occur at the commencement of the Racing Season after the Junior Member has reached 18 years of age.
