Costs of joining the club

Note these prices are subject to change (New prices Jan 2014)

Joining UQ Canoe club (required)

UQ Canoe Club membership: $80 (fulltime UQ student) or $120 (others)

Membership turns over in March of a given year. If you join in January or February, your membership lasts until the end of March of the following year (i.e. up to 15 months of membership). If you join after March, membership lasts until March of the following year.

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 Australian canoeing) canoe polo sessions).

Costs of Joining Affiliate Organisations (optional)

Australian Canoeing membership
Members are encouraged to become Australian Canoeing members. This provides an additional source of insurance coverage. It also enables members to more easily participate in other club or Australian/Queensland canoeing events, and allows them to join secondary canoe clubs if they wish.
Another way to join Australian canoeing is to join an additional affiliated club that insures its members via Australian canoeing (The UQ canoe club insures via UQ sport instead as this is in most of its members' interest). In the case of clubs such as the Queensland sea kayak club, membership is not much extra than joining AC directly, and for some members this complements a UQCC membership.
