Membership of Academicals is open to all adults with some rowing experience and who meet our safety requirements. Those without rowing experience are encouraged to sign up for the novice course and join the club that way.
Details on membership fees can be obtained from the Secretary or Treasurer. As a general guide:
|Full annual membership||June-May (variable)||£190|
|Student annual membership||June-May (variable)||£130|
|New member summer membership||June-Sept||£125|
|Student summer membership||June-Sept||£85|
Students must be unsalaried and in full time education (i.e. doing a degree).
We offer free membership to those who only wish to coach or cox.
For those joining later in the season or for only part of a year we also do monthly memberships.
|Monthly student fee||£22|
Note you pay for the whole month in which your membership begins. We will also consider alternative rates for special circumstances – particularly for those who are leaving Oxford during the season, and for those experiencing financial hardship. If you wish to be considered for special dispensation, please contact the Secretary.
Experienced rowers wishing to join Academicals must show competency in rowing before joining the Club. Members are also required to follow safety regulations, such as passing a swim test, and must abide by the rules of the British Rowing.
We also offer Own Equipment membership for the exceptionally reasonable rate of £20 annually. This will allow you storage, the right to race in your own boat, use of some club-owned equipment and involvement in all our social groups and events. Please contact the Secretary for more information.
