The FNC Branch wants to attract young members onto this pathway.  The majority of IRB teams across the States are under the age of 29 and consist of nearly 40% young women. The old days and old ways of IRB racing have been updated with professionally managed competitions and safe training protocols.

Bronze holders can first gain their IRB Crew Certificate, then progress towards IRB Driver Certificate.
