Summer Youth Competitive

New this year all rowers will need to purchase a youth membership in order to take classes at SRA. Youth Membership is $250 annually but will be done on a biannual basis (January and July). Membership provides access to our facilities (ergs, weights, bathrooms) during non-class time during business hours (5am-8:30pm). 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

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.   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 Championship US Rowing membership unless you will be racing at a US Rowing sponsored regatta. We will let you know if that is the case. However, if you do not have a paid membership there is a small filing fee to sign the online waiver.


Novice Youth Competitive Rowing

The Youth Competitive Team is open to those athletes going into at least their Freshman year in high school

Rowers who intend to join the competitive novice team in the fall may participate in the summer novice rowing camp. The purpose of the camp will be to provide an introduction to the sport through beginning and intermediate technical instruction. 

Regular attendance is required for our competitive teams. Rowers who have significant schedule conflicts are encouraged not to enroll. Practices will be fun but rowers will be expected to focus and learn. Novice rowers will gain a basic understanding for competitive rowing by developing technical skills, learning how the competitive team operates, and working with the competitive novice coaches. Rowers who participate in the summer Competitive Novice team will be more prepared for the fall season and the racing which starts only a few weeks in to fall.

You can contact the registrar with any questions at registration.
