How to become a member

The process of becoming a member of KYC is straight forward. Click here to complete a online membership application form.  Membership requires a sponsor, if you have agreed with a current KYC Member to act as your sponsor, use their name on your application.  Like many new members, if you do not currently know any KYC members, you will be assisted with this upon receipt of your application.

Once your application is submitted, a representative of the club will contact you in the coming days, if you have any questions about the membership or application process, the Club Manager will be happy to speak with you on 604-730-1646. 

Once your application has been approved by the Executive Committee, you will be invited to make an online payment. Upon receipt of your payment please contact the Club Manager to arrange an orientation.

Volunteering


KYC prides itself in its strong volunteer commitment. This is one of the reasons why KYC membership rates remain affordable. All members are expected to donate 10 volunteer hours to KYC per season. You may use your unique skills to help maintain the property, or volunteer at one of our events or regatta's.

Volunteering opportunities appear periodically on the KYC website or as directed by the Volunteer Manager or Club Manager. Members are expected to ensure they have fulfilled their volunteering commitment by renewal date the following season. Upon renewal, $10 per hour donation is expected for each hour of incomplete voluntary contribution.

** All new members require a new gate fob to access the grounds and clubhouse. Gate fobs are not transferable, and non-refundable. Allowing others to use your fob is a serious breach of your membership, and your membership may be revoked as a result. If there is a requirement for others to access the club on your behalf, this should be done by prior approval from the club manager.
