As a community rowing program, SRA does not require a yearly membership in order for you to participate in our Youth and Adult classes. But what if you want to row or erg outside of your classes? Our membership program gives you the freedom to take out sculling boats and use the ergs and weight equipment whenever it fits your schedule. Please seeSRA Rower’s Handbook 2013 for more information regarding boat usage, etc.
SRA Membership Benefits & Requirements:
- Unlimited use of club singles, doubles, and exercise equipment
- Priority over team classes for singles and doubles with a reservation
- 10% discount on team class fees and a 15% discount on sculling class fees.
- Ability to register for special “members only” programs, such as Advanced Sculling classes and other workshops.
- LTR 1&2, or already be a proficient sculler, AND have completed a sculling checkout. Members must have completed a flip test through these programs or independently
- All memberships expire on the last day of the current year. New members are eligible for a one-time pro-rated membership fee to take them through the last day of the current year (click on preferred membership type below for pro-rated fee schedule.) All returning members MUST renew in January of the following year.
Before you can row, you’ll need to complete the following steps:
- Register & Pay for your membership by clicking here. Please see bottom of page for membership price information.
- Complete the online sculling e-checkout. You will use the SRA Rower’s Handbook 2013 to complete the quiz.
- Print off, sign and turn in paperwork listed on our forms page. You can mail these in or bring them with you next week and put them in the black mailbox at the boathouse.
- Take a formal sculling checkout (see schedule below.) A sculling checkout is required for new membership, though you can row up until a checkout as long as steps 1-3 are completed. Please contact director to schedule a sculling checkout.
**Special notes for JUNIOR MEMBERS (under 18 years old):
- Junior rowers must turn in a SRA Junior Member Waiver in addition to the paperwork listed above.
- Rowers must have Director permission before joining as a member- Director will contact the junior rower’s prior coach to determine small boat sculling ability.
- Please note that junior members are rowing unsupervised. He/she MUST have completed at least one spring season of competitive novice rowing to become a member of SRA, or have Director permission.
- SRA junior members must wear a life vest at all times while rowing independently in a 1x. Rowers in a 2x must at least stow a life vest at all times. SRA requires all independent scullers to wear high visibility (high vis) clothing when rowing in small boats during daylight hours, as well as when it’s dark out. It is difficult for other boats to see you and your boat if you are wearing dark clothing. High Vis clothing is very “in” right now so you can easily find apparel at most athletic stores and online.
- Please remember that with the nice weather comes ski boats. Independent rowers should row near the shore at all times, being careful of docks and swimmers. Rowers must stop and check the ski course that runs perpendicular to the slough before proceeding across.
- Rowers should remember that SRA classes have first priority over equipment- our busiest times during the summer are 7am-11am M-F. Rowers MUST check the reservation charts at the boathouse before using any sculling equipment.
