Become a member of Pan Idræt
Welcome to one of the strongest communities you will ever experience. We are your sports club, where friendships, health and exercise thrive between our over 1000 members spread across our more than 25 different sports.
Come to the trial lesson before you register and remember to tackle the sport or sports you want to practice before registering.
A sports club where you can be yourself
As a member, you will experience that we focus on sports taking place in a safe environment where you can be completely yourself. We value inclusion and strong friendships as crucial elements in our club - no matter what sport you participate in.
Community across sports
Pan Sports is both a community on your sports team and throughout the club. You meet your teammates for the weekly training and at rallies. We all gather at a number of events throughout the year, e.g. Copenhagen Pride and our traditional Christmas lunch, which is a regular feature for many members.
Daniel: “Pan Sports is much more than training and competitions for me. This is where I have my friends and my social life. Pan Sports is also reassurance for me that I can be myself.
It has given me the wildest kick with all the new friends I have made in Pan Sports, so when I go to training or party in the club, I am always sure to meet many of the people I care about.
Sportingly, I have moved wildly - from being a beginner and knowing nothing, I participate today in various tournaments, including with badminton. Incidentally, it is wildly cool that there are so many sports offerings gathered in one and the same club. It makes it easy and be flexible and I get to try several sides of myself - almost every day I go to some sport in the club "
Pia: For me, Pan Idræt is about our strong communities, which contribute so much positively in the LGBT community. So yes, it is clearly a value to me that Pan Sports is primarily aimed at LGBT people.
I meet so many amazingly sweet and inspiring people and it's cool to know they share my interests. Yoga in Pan Sports helps to increase my mental and physical surplus, create calm and balance in my everyday life.
And then it just gives the extra to be involved in sports where people are involved in each other and want the community. ”
A membership of Pan Idræt costs DKK 390 per year and is automatically renewed at the beginning of the next calendar year. We call it club membership.
If you register after 1 July, a reduced membership fee of DKK 195 will be paid for the rest of the year.
The club contingent covers our common costs, such as the development of new sports, the use fee for municipal sports facilities, advertising and marketing, insurance, administration and much more.
Once you have registered for Pan Idræt, you can participate in our activities. Most sports have a team fee, which covers the expenses for coaching fees, training of coaches, social activities on the individual sports teams and much more.
In other words, the payment for sports goes to all the expenses we can not bear with advantage over the club membership fee.
It differs from sport to sport, when and how much is paid. Typically, you should expect between 300 - 500 DKK per. half a year - but check out the specific prices on the members' digital self-service platform.
Worth knowing about us
Pan Idræt is a sports club where you are a member until you actively sign up. They mean that your membership is automatically renewed every year in early January. You will receive an email in advance informing you that your membership will be renewed soon. If you forget to unsubscribe, you are obliged to pay.
In Pan Idræt, we agree with each other that you pay your membership fee on time, as an unpaid membership fee simply shifts the expenses onto those who pay and it is not fair play.
Questions and answers
Here you will find answers to some of the questions we often get from new members before they sign up.
Q: Can one try Pan Sports for free?
Yes, the vast majority of activities in Pan Sports can be tried twice for free. However, this is not all, as some activities are associated with slightly higher operating expenses. Ask the individual activity by asking the steering group you will find all contact information here.
Q: Why should you choose whether you are “male” or “female” when creating a profile?
We are not satisfied with that either - but unfortunately it is not Pan Idræt that alone decides what information the authorities require from a publicly approved association that wants access to the public facilities. In this connection, we must state the number of members, broken down by, among other things, the legal gender, age, etc. Therefore, we are obliged to ask new members to register their legal gender. As an attempt to get around the problem, we Pan Pan Sports have added an extra field where you can voluntarily write your gender identity.
Q: Why do you ask about people's sexuality?
In Pan Sports, we ask people about their sexuality because the club's purpose is to create a safe and inclusive sports environment for everyone, regardless of sexuality and gender identity. This is thus one of the ways we measure whether we succeeded in the task. Correspondents we also ask about people's gender identity.
Q: Where and when does the training take place?
In Pan Idræt we have sports activities 7 days a week at many different times. You can find a list of training locations and times on the individual sports pages that you find here.
Q: What are the benefits, in addition to sports, of being a member of Pan Sports?
In addition to all the sports activities, Pan Idræt has great social commitment, in the departments and across the association. We meet regularly for Pan Events and annually for parties in connection with the general meeting, summer party, Copenhagen Pride, Christmas lunch and for conventions.
In addition, we have a concept we call Pan Plus. Here, as a member, you can get a discount on a number of offers in Copenhagen.
Q: Do you have a gym?
Pan Idræt does not have its own fitness center - it is simply too expensive to have a center located centrally in Copenhagen.
Q: Why do I have to pay both club membership fees and for sports teams?
Pan Idræt is a community around openness, tolerance and a safe framework for sports.
We are one unified club, where all the expenses that make sense to incur jointly are paid with the club membership fee. It gives us i.a. economies of scale, which help keep the overall price of our sport down. Common expenses include the development of new sports, user fees for municipal premises, administration, marketing, etc.
The few expenses that are very sports-specific, eg fees and training of coaches, they are paid via the payment on the individual sports teams.
Q: How long do I commit to Pan Sports membership?
Your membership always runs until the end of the calendar year. If you do not actively opt out again, your membership will continue automatically in the next period. You must therefore make sure to unsubscribe yourself, it is not enough just to not pay.
Q: Does it cost anything to opt out?
No, there is no fee associated with unsubscribing from Pan Sports.
Remember to consider whether one of the many other sports in Pan Sports might be of interest to you before any resignation.
Where and to whom can I ask questions that are not answered here?
If you have sports-specific questions about training or events that are related to a specific activity, you must contact the relevant department.
If you have questions regarding your membership, questions of a general nature, please contact the secretariat firstname.lastname@example.org - it is also the secretariat you can contact, if you do not know where to ask, they will find the right contact person.
Here you can read more about the important conditions attached to a membership of Pan Idræt.
We are a unified sports club
Pan Sports is what is called a multi-strand sports club. This means that your membership - no matter what sport you go to - is in Pan Sports. The simple departments / sports (regardless of whether they are called "Pan" by first name) are different teams in Pan Sports.
When you join Pan Idræt, you are obliged to comply with ours articles of association and the decisions made by the governing bodies of Pan Idræt, e.g. Pan Sports' board of directors or the steering group in the department where you play sports. Examples of decisions that apply to all members can be found in our policies.
Automatic renewal of membership
It is a condition for membership of Pan Idræt that you are in possession of a payment card, e.g. Dankort or Visa / Dankort and use this when registering for payment of the membership fee.
Upon registration, your payment card is linked to automatic membership fee payment and your membership is automatically renewed until you cancel this yourself. You can always by looking under "my registrations" on the member login see when the next time payment is charged for the individual teams. The club membership for Pan Idræt is always charged at the beginning of the year.
Charged membership fee and team payment will not be refunded. The moment a payment deadline is exceeded, you as a member are obliged to pay this. This applies no matter how much you use your membership in Pan Sports. The same applies if you want to unsubscribe after a club membership fee or team payment.
Termination of membership always takes place for the coming club membership period - ie the coming year, e.g. If you cancel your membership in the month of July, this will run until 31 December.
Pan Idræt is covered by the sport's collective insurances as part of our membership of DGI. These insurances cover the club as a whole and our coaches.
Furthermore, we have a collective sports travel insurance. You can hear more about it if you write to the secretariat at email@example.com
The insurances cover does not you as a member in connection with accidents, injuries to training, etc .. Here you must make sure that your insurance conditions are in order. Do you practice one of our more physical sports, e.g. boxing or martial arts you should make sure that these sports are covered by your insurance policies.
Pan Idræt we work with the inclusion of people in sports communities, as we know that it is the way to a better quality of life both physically and socially. We have a very special focus on sexual diversity and gender diversity.
The history of Pan Sports starts back in 1984, based on the AIDS epidemic, where a group of gays wanted to swim together. It has since evolved to include many different activities and a wider membership than just gays - and we are constantly working to become better at reaching out to new member groups, which will be an active and constructive part of our community.
Special focus on trans people
We have decided to work purposefully to increase our membership among trans people, as we can see that this group in numerous health surveys has the same challenges as homosexuals in relation to physical and social well-being.
Our sports teams have different profiles - on very few of them - gender is a marker based on the specific sport. We do not interfere in members' gender perceptions, as this is a private matter. You can possibly check out our gender policy by clicking here. With us, you can participate in all sports teams, as long as it is fair play.
For many trans people, questions and insecurities can arise that deter one from starting to practice a sport. We therefore have a collaboration with a trans person who acts as an ambassador in relation to establishing contact with our departments so that you can start in a safe environment.
You can write to the ambassador by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org - our ambassador has a duty of confidentiality and treats all inquiries confidentially.
