ELIGIBILITY   Rising 9th Grade through 12th Grade Rower must have completed at least one novice summer or fall season.

OBJECTIVE  The small boats session focuses on rowing skills in sculling boats–quads, doubles, and singles–with the goal of developing the rower’s technique in both sculling and sweep boats.  The coach to rower ratio will be no greater than one to eight.

SWIM TEST CERTIFICATE  All participants are required to have a swim test on file with their school rowing team.  There is no requirement for the rower or school to provide a copy of the swim test as long as the school rowing team has the swim certificate on file.  

If a rower did not participate with a high school rowing team, a swim test certificate is required. Forms

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION FORM All participants are required to submit a VHSL Feb 2017 Physical Examination Form completed by qualified medical personnel.  The form must have a doctor’s signature dated 1 January 2019 or later.  Ensure all four pages are completed with required signatures.  Make a copy to bring on the first day of rowing camp; keep the original for your records. Forms

Note:  Same day sports physicals are available from NextCare for $25. Walk-ins are accepted.

WAIT-LISTING Wait-lists will go into effect once the rower cap has been reached for that session. This may occur before the close date for the session. Register early to better ensure a seat in a boat. Check the invoice. If it says wait-listed, the debit or credit card HAS NOT been charged. The charge will not occur until after the rower has been moved from the wait-list. An email message will be sent before moving the rower from wait-listed to active status.

REGISTRATION   Registration payment is by debit or credit card online through the below link. No checks accepted.

WATER BOTTLE  All participates will receive a reusable water bottle on the first day.  To help reduce the use of disposal water bottles and keep our boathouse clean, rowers are encouraged to bring water daily in their new reusable water bottle.
