Membership fees are payable by all national member federations annually.

Guide training and education (GTE) fees can be found here.

Membership fees are based on the type of membership – Established Member or Ordinary Member.

Fees are in USD. Fees for 2020 are:

Ordinary Members: 

    • World Rafting Championships:
      • Open, Masters teams = $200
      • U19, U23 teams = $160
    • European Rafting Championships:
      • Open, Masters teams = $140
      • U19, U23 teams = $100

Established Members:

    • Base annual fee = $550
    • ADD fees for teams sent to European and World Rafting Championships (fees same as Ordinary Members)
    • MAXIMUM PAYABLE = $800
      For 2020 the maximum race entry fee for Established Members is $250 i.e. Established Members will only pay more than $550 if they are sending several teams to these events. However, the maximum an Established Member will pay is $800 in total.

Please contact IRF Admin if you have any questions.

Firstly, determine how many teams will be going to the IRF European and/or World Championships from your country.

Then put those numbers into the formula below:

WRC: Open, Masters teams: $200 x number teams =
WRC: U19, U23 teams: $160 x number teams =
ERC: Open, Masters teams: $140 x number teams =
ERC: U19, U23 teams: $100 x number teams =
TOTAL =

Once you have calculated the TOTAL proceed to Step 2:

If you are an Established Member:

– and the TOTAL is less than $550 – you will pay $550
– and the TOTAL is more than $800 – you will pay $800
– and the TOTAL is between $550 and $800 you pay the TOTAL

If you are an Ordinary Member:

– you pay the TOTAL amount
– If your TOTAL amount is more than $800 we suggest you contact us and convert to being an Established Member.

This fee structure has been designed to keep the costs manageable for new and developing members and keeps the increases manageable for our members who are very active in sending larger numbers of teams to our events.
