Membership

Membership is changing for 2016

Starting January 1st our membership structure will be changing. We will now have two different categories: Youth or Adult. Membership is still required for all individuals participating in classes or independent rowing with the exception of Learn to Row, Row for a Day and Youth Recreational Classes. In order to row independently an “Independent Rowing Card” must be purchased on a quarterly basis to take out any boats. To learn more about the IRC click HERE

How to keep your Membership in good standing:

  1. Pay for membership online or via check to SRA

  2. Read the 2016 SRA Rower’s Handbook and watch the US Rowing Safety Video.                             

  3. Sign the online US Rowing Liability Waiver at this link. Enter FTA9E under “Athletes” for the club code.                                                                                                                                      Note: Our liability insurance is through US Rowing, so to be covered under our insurance, everyone must sign the US Rowing waiver annually. You DO NOT need to pay for an individual US Rowing membership unless you will be racing at a US Rowing sponsored regatta. We will let you know if that is the case.

  4. Complete and turn in a signed float test if you have not already done so. The float test is valid for 5 years.
