Joining: membership requirements and fees

Coxes, rowers and coaches of any age and ability are very welcome - we encourage prospective members to come and give rowing a try with us at no cost for two sessions.

If you're interested in joining, please contact your coordinator or come down and see us at the river.

Fees

Membership costs from April 2016:

Full member - 264 per year 22 per month
Junior - 132 per year 11 per month
Student - 132 per year 11 per month
Coach - 60 per year 5 per month
Racking fee for privately-owned boats - 60 per seat per year 5 per month

(Reduced rates available for families where seniors and juniors are members)

Please pay by Standing Order if possible - see "Forms" below.

Other costs

When the club goes to events, you will need to pay an entry fee (usually between 8 and 12 per head) and we also ask for a towing charge. This is currently 5 per person, per event (juniors 4) and is used to cover the cost of fuel for the person towing and the hire of a vehicle to do the towing if required. You'll need to supply your own athletic clothing which should allow ease of movement and be warm enough for the time of year. We do have a supply of club clothing and there are several companies who sell rowing kit via mail order.

Safety

Membership of Avon County is open to anyone, provided they can swim at least 100 metres in light clothing. The club's Safety Policy is available and we suggest you read this before coming to the club, for your own safety.
