New this year all rowers will need to purchase a membership in order to take classes at SRA. Membership is $180 annually but will be done on a biannual basis (January and July). Membership provides access to our facilities (ergs, weights, bathrooms) during non-class hours. It also allows for priority registration in our programs. To row independently during non-class times a separate Independent Rowing Card (IRC) must be purchased.
1. Sign Up for Class
Choose a class below, then click on the appropriate button. If you don’t see the button below, registration is not yet available. While registering you will have the option of paying online with a credit card or sending a check to our PO Box 3309, Redmond, WA 98073. For any registration questions, cancellations or changes, submit an email to registration.
2. Pass the Float Test
New rowers must pass a Float Test prior to rowing, and returning rowers must re-test every five years. SRA does not conduct tests, so follow instructions on the Float Test Form to identify a location, complete the test, and obtain lifeguard signature. Be sure to bring your signed form to the first day of class, or send to our mailing address.
3. Sign a US Rowing Waiver
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.
