Affiliation Benefits

As an affiliated British Rowing club, you are recognised as a voting member of the organisation. We will support your clubs development and help you meet national standards of governance which helps to make clubs safe and well-run.

Purpose of club affiliation

Through the annual process of club affiliation British Rowing is able to recognise safe and well run clubs by entering into a year long contract where we offer support, recognition and tools in return for a fee which generates unrestricted income.

Why should clubs care?

Affiliating to British Rowing should be something that every club in the sport should want to do. We aim to be clear about where and how we add value, with benefits that resonate with the rowing community that are explained in simple terms. Affiliation to British Rowing needs to be about facilitating clubs to facilitate and enhance people’s enjoyment of the sport while also giving them a sense of status and belonging, rather than being seen as a tax that allows them to race.

Associated Organisations

There might be organisations that feel the support and benefits listed aren’t relevant to them but they do want to be part of the rowing community. For these organisations we offer an Associated Organisation membership. They will receive guidance on funding applications*, welfare & safeguarding*, CleanSport* (*if located in England) and are able to post job adverts on the British Rowing website free of charge. These organisations will also be listed on the club finder*, in the almanack and they can use British Rowing branding according to the brand guidelines set out. In terms of tools, associated organisations can use ClubHub and RowHow for a fee and need to get in touch with British Rowing staff via [email protected] if they have an interest in doing so.
