BDA Membership

The BDA offers a number of membership options. For clubs there is a Club Membership option. For individual wanting to train and race, there are Adult & Junior Membership options and for Organisations wishing to be affiliated with the BDA, such as Dragon Boat Event companies or Activity Centres, there is an Associate Membership option.

All BDA memberships run from 1st Jan to 31st Dec each year and can be purchased through our BDA Digital Membership Platform.

Adult & Junior Memberships, as well as allowing you to compete at National League & National Championship events, you are also able to attend BNTS (GB Squad) training sessions prior to crew selection for European or World Nations Championships.

Also included in your individual membership is insurance cover for personal injury as well as personal liability cover for virtually any dragon boat training or racing situation. Please see the BDA Insurance site for specifics and contact details for questions and queries.

BDA Individual Membership is absolutely essential for all Qualified Helms & Coaches in all BDA Registered Clubs.

Please go to our new Digital Membership Platform, register and either link your profile to your club, or to take out or renew your Individual BDA Membership.
