Please ensure that you are able to attend all sessions for your course. Details of sessions for all courses are on the club website under Membership / Beginners Courses.

The Membership Secretary will contact you to confirm details of the actual course that you will be invited to attend.
Our beginner courses can fill up very quickly and you must confirm with the membership secretary that places exist on your preferred course before completing and submitting this membership application.

BY SUBMITTING THIS FORM I AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:

To abide by the rules and regulations as set out or referred to in the rules and constitution of the club as displayed in the clubhouse, or as available on the club website. I understand that as an adult I accept a duty of care for Junior Members when accompanying them on club activities. I have fully completed this membership form, indicated my choices regarding data security, and noted any relevant medical conditions.

To abide by any temporary restrictions and guidelines that the club may from time to time put in place in the interests of the safety and well-being of members or as required by any external authority or sport governing body.

That the Club's third party liability insurance through British Canoeing only covers its members whilst participating in organised club activities. This means that if you take part in independent paddling or indoor training activities outside of club sessions, either at the club or elsewhere, you will have no insurance protection through the Club if a member of the public or another club member makes a claim against you for damage to them or their property. Individual membership of British Canoeing provides you with this cover, and for that reason the Club strongly recommends that all members taking part in independent paddling or indoor training outside of club sessions have British Canoeing membership, so that they have third party liability protection in place to ensure they do not become personally liable to pay any claim made against them.

To indemnify the club and its officers against any claim in respect of children of whom I am the parent/guardian (if applicable).

I understand and accept that the club operates a mixed age group changing room policy.

I confirm that I have read and understood the Membership Application notes
and Parental Consent guidance as appropriate:
