Club membership renewals outstanding

It is now February yet there are a number of clubs that are yet to renew their BDA Club Membership for 2017.


Your club membership includes your insuirance cover for Dragon Boat related activities, including training, without which you are operating uninsured which is generally not a good idea.


If should also be noted that from 2017 moving forwards, in order to satisfy our insurers conditions of insurance, a current DBS check must be in place for your Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer, Welfare Office & Club Coach/Club Coaches.


These are all standard committee key roles that we would expect you to have represented in your club, if you have a different club structure then you need to liaise with Barbara Keenan to confirm who needs DBS checks.


Due to the need for us to adhere to the strict insurance conditions we reserve the right to refuse/suspend a club membership application where no DBS checks or insufficient DBS checks are in place or where we are unable to ascertain what DBS checks are in place due to a lack of information and/or lack of communication from your club.


We cannot allow one club to jeopardisde the insurance cover for all of us.
