Online Form for Club Affiliation:

Please fill in the form below and submit to WSR, if you are unable to fill in all the fields with correct information just put ‘TBA’. (Email address must be in format)


As an affiliated member of WARA and ultimately ARA, Welsh Sea Rowing WSR has to ensure that each of our clubs complies with their regulations. Any amateur rowing club or club that has facilities for rowing, situated in Wales, may be affiliated to the Association on becoming approved by a two-thirds majority of the executive committee of WSR. Each member club thereby binds itself to observe the rules of WSR.
Acceptance is not automatic and we have to satisfy ourselves that every club is run in acceptable way before affiliation can be granted.

If you do not wish to fill in the online form please download the affiliation form word document, fill it in and send to the WSR Secretary: (You do not need to submit the other documents listed on the form until such time we return to rowing.)

Q. Do we need to provide the following documents before being issued a WSR affiliation certificate?

Club Safety Audit Checklist
Club Risk Assessment Checklist
Club Constitution

A. WSR understand that many clubs have been dormant over the Covid-19 period and may continue to be for a while longer. It is therefore not practical to ask for these documents until such time that clubs can start thinking about returning to rowing.  However it is imperative that these documents are supplied before any water based activity takes places otherwise your insurance will be invalidated. Please consult with WSR Secretary for more information.

Q. How do we pay our fees?
A. There are no affiliation fees to pay for the 2021 season.

Q. Do we still need to pay membership fees per individual member?
A. Yes the normal fees of £15 per adult and £6 per junior apply for the 2021 season. However if you paid as an adult member last year (2020 season) it was decided at the last AGM to offer a £5.00 reduction on this years fees. Please consult with WSR Secretary for more information.
