Important - All Rowers

US Rowing Membership is required prior to the start of the season. Returning rowers only need to renew their membership on their membership anniversary.  If you became a US Rowing member in August, you will only need to renew in August 2017.  The Basic Membership at $9.75 is adequate, but if you'd like to support the US Rowing team for an additional fee, you can join as a Champion Member for $45.00.  All rowers competing at a National or International level must be Champion Members.

US Rowing Waivers are based on the calendar year, and will need to be signed again online for all rowers prior to the start of the season.

Rowers will not be able to practice without a US Rowing Membership number and signed online waiver.

First Annual Winter Ball

Our 1st Annual Winter Ball was a huge success with net profits nearing $3000.  Thanks to Jamie and Carlos Russin, who spearheaded the event, and to all our volunteers who worked hard to make it all happen.  We're already looking forward to next year!
