Pro-rata memberships are not available for renewing members

New adult members joining UQBC for the first-time and part way through the season may still be offered a pro-rated rate but this is at the discretion of the Board.

Payment plans will be considered for members with genuine financial need, but full payment will ultimately be required.

Please contact our Treasurer if you would like to apply for a payment plan.

New Members

If you have previously been a member of another Club, please contact ( so that a transfer request can be placed. Do not register for UQBC membership.

Prospective members may be required to undertake an on-water assessment to evaluate safety and competency. UQBC expects a high level of independence and sufficiency from all members. Applicants who do not satisfy the competency requirements are invited to apply for the UQBC Learn to Row and/or Intermediate Program.
