Club Rules and Policies

Our ethos and values

At Henley Rowing Club we pride ourselves on the friendly and welcoming atmosphere that our members create. We believe that to achieve this the club must work together, be respectful of each individual regardless of age, culture, disability, gender, language, racial origin, religious belief and/or sexual identity. The Club will therefore expect its members, coaches, associated individuals, and athletes to behave in a way that portrays the ethos and values of Henley Rowing Club, as well as the positive attributes of British Rowing. Failure to do so will result in the implementation of the disciplinary procedure and persistent deviation will result in dismissal from the club (see complaints and disciplines policy and procedure).

Club Constitution and Codes of Conduct

The club has a Constitution which is based on the British Rowing Model.  The Constitution was recently approved at a General Meeting of Members on 13 July 2016.  A copy of the current Constitution is provided here:
