Membership Details

Membership runs from April – March each year and fees are payable by 31 May. There are a number of membership types with varying costs, access to facilities and conditions. Unless otherwise stated, all membership types include state & national levies (if applicable), access to club equipment and organised training sessions, access to shed and facilities, and GST. During the season, squads can only access equipment on their designated training days, except by agreement with the Captain. Coaching and access to our Canning facilities out of season will incur additional charges.

Club Service

UWA Boat Club is primarily a student-based club. Therefore, to keep our fees as affordable as possible, all fully racing members are required to assist with:

  • 3x Boat maintenance days (1x for recreational members)
  • Club fundraising (whether organised by the club, or by individual squads)
  • Assisting at a regatta hosted by the club

Failure to assist the club may result in a $50 levy being applied to the member.

Fees

By applying for membership with the club, you become part of the Boat Club Community, and so make a commitment to the club and all activities associated with being a member including full payment of fees. Therefore, there will be no refunds on membership.

NB: All fees are inclusive of GST

Membership fees must be paid upfront at the beginning of each season. A strict payment plan can be requested by those that require financial assistance, however, paying via instalments is not an offer of partial membership. The only exception, as we are a student club, is to UWA exchange students, who are only in Perth for one semester. There are also discounts for Australian Representatives.

An event nomination fee (aka seat or oar fee) of $11 per person per event is charged. Competitors will be invoiced after each event unless otherwise informed. State Championships and Elizabeth Quay regattas incur different fees and are subject to change. Please direct any queries about fees to the Registrar.

Members are strongly recommended to opt-in for the use of the UWABC’s rowing-specific weights area. Membership is a low $22.

Limited storage space for private equipment can be arranged by application at a cost of $176 for a single scull, or $330 for a double per annum (plus insurance if desired). For more information, please refer to Private Equipment and Storage.

Financial assistance is available in the form of a payment plan, to arrange one please contact the club Registrar. A minimum of $100 deposit on your membership fee is required before you will be able to race.

Throughout the year you will be issued with invoices for membership fees and any regatta fees/fines or other charges you incur. Payment options and instructions will be included on these. Please include the invoice reference number with all payments.

If on a payment plan, regular agreed payments must be maintained so that all fees are paid by 31 August. All other fees (including regatta fees, private equipment storage and insurance etc) must be paid within 30 days. Failure to pay will result in you being prevented from rowing or transferred to another club until payment is made (or a payment plan is negotiated with the Registrar).

Payments may be made via credit/debit card (this will incur a 2% +$1.60 service fee) or bank transfer. For all bank transfers please use the invoice reference number as the description.

At any time you can view your invoice and payment record by logging in and choosing “Payment History”. Card payments will be reflected immediately, bank transfers will be reconciled fortnightly.
