1. Type of Membership / Costs

Membership is required to participate in club activities. Three types of membership are available. The type affects the price and how long the membership lasts.

  • Ordinary membership: $90 (fulltime UQ student) or $130 (others) From mid-May 2022 until the end of 2022 the cost of an ordinary membership was lowered to the same price as a semester membership ($60 fulltime UQ student and $75 for others). This is due to flood and covid interruptions and is for 2022 only.

    Membership turns over at the end of a given year. If you join in January or February, your membership lasts until the end of the year.
  • Semester membership: $60 (fulltime UQ student) or $75 (others) Membership commences on the date membership is approved by the Management Committee and ends three weeks after the end of the nominated University of Queensland semester date.

    NB: from mid-May 2022 ordinary membership is the same price as a semester membership. This makes ordinary membership better value for 2022. Please select this.
  • Life membership: Awarded by club at the discretion of the club committee, and with the approval of the club members, life membership may be offered to eligible members of over 10 years standing. It commences on the date it is awarded at a general meeting of members and continues until the person’s death, or the member resigns from the membership.

To be eligible for personal accident insurance (via UQ sport), you MUST be a financial member of the Canoe club. Without this you cannot participate in club activities (other than one off trial paddles, come and try days, and (if a member of Paddle Australia) canoe polo sessions.
