Annual membership begins in 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 access to club equipment, organised training sessions, the shed and facilities during the regatta season, and GST.
Extra costs will apply to use the gym equipment, access the facilities and train during the summer.
If you’re racing, you will also incur fees for each event you enter. Factor in at least $200 for a typical pennant season. Obviously the more events you race, the more costs you will incur. (See Other Fees below)
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.
UWA Boat Club is primarily a student-based club. Therefore, to keep our fees as affordable as possible, all members are required to assist with:
Failure to assist the club may result in a $50 levy being applied to the member. Make sure you sign in at maintenance days.
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
The Rowing WA fee is paid directly when you register or renew your membership, this covers insurance.
The UWA Boatclub Membership Fee is paid by invoice after you’ve registered.
* Age is calculated as the age you will be on 31 December of the current year
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 installments 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.
Oar Fees: An event nomination fee (aka seat or oar fee) of $13.50 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.
Gym Membership: Members are strongly recommended to opt-in for the use of the UWABC’s rowing-specific weights area. The Gym Weights fee is a low $22 and you can purchase it through our shop.
Private Storage: Limited storage space for UWABC Member’s 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.
