So you want to join Dabs?

Fantastic, welcome to the finest club in the whole dam universe!

Very simply, the fee schedule works like this:

Dabulamanzi canoe club membership: this gets you club membership and all access to the facilities on offer. (You will receive a tag for the change-rooms and boat pound). It does not entitle you to store your boat in the racks.

Social Junior (U18) R 555.00
Social Student (>18 - U25)
Proof of the current year's student card is required.
R 555.00
Social Pensioner (>65) R 440.00
Social Senior Member (>25 - <65) R 1080.00
Social Country
Proof of membership at Club outside of Gauteng required.
A country member cannot register to race through Dabs.
R 500.00

oat rack: should you wish to store your boat in the boat racks (subject to availability), then this fee applies.

Boat rack (per rack) R 1 150.00


First issue (once-off) R 80.00
Re-issue R 100.00

this is the fee payable to ASA to obtain a license to run. Again, like GCU membership, one needs to be a Basic/Social member first.

ASA/CGA license R 150.00

CSA/GCU Membership fee (ratified at GCU AGM on 28/03/2019):
this is your fee to be affiliated to the Gauteng Canoe Union (GCU) and to be able to race in sanctioned GCU and CSA (Canoeing South Africa) events. The fee goes to GCU, who then registers you as a racing member with CSA. You have to be a Basic/Social member first to apply for this.

GCU 1st Year Junior (U12) Free
GCU – Junior (>12 -U18) R 260.00
GCU – Student (>18 -U25) (current registration required) R 260.00
GCU - Senior Affiliated Member (>25) R 720.00
GCU 3rd Junior Family member (<12) Free
Social paddler, SAMSA levy, anyone >12 years old (non-competing) R 100.00

From now on, each and every paddler MUST LOG INTO their CSA profile to update their personal information!
