Fall 2016 Learn to Row Program

Registration is available for the Fall 2016 Learn to Row  program.  The Learn to Row Program is open to all ACSD 7th through 12th graders.  The cost is $250 and runs from 9/6/2016 to 11/5/2016.  Rowers in the Learn to Row Program will learn the fundamentals of rowing.   Rowers will not participate in any of the fall races, but will develop the necessary skills to compete on Arlington’s team in the Spring 2017.  For those that want to learn to row, but cannot commit to a eight week program, please consider HRRA’s two week learn to row program which runs from 9/7/2016 to 9/21/2016 which costs $175.

Fall 2016 Registration is Open

Registration for the Fall 2016 Season is now available.   

The cost is $500 and the season runs from 9/6/2016 to 11/5/2016. 

There are 2 registration options for experienced rowers: 

  1. 9th through 12th Grade
  2. 8th Grade

8th Grade registration has a more flexible reimbursement policy, 100% if made within the first 4 weeks versus prorated from 9/6/2016.  There is a late fee of $50 for registrations not completed by 9/10/2016.  Registration must be completed prior to participation.

Each family is expected to volunteer for 10 hours (this is not per rower).  There is a $100 deposit that is collected during registration.  This deposit is refundable following completion of the 10 hours of service, as documented on the Volunteer Card.  The $100 deposit is not collected for the 8th Grade rowers.

Returning rowers may have positive account balances as a result of last year’s fundraising events and/or erg deposits.  To apply your balance to the registration fee you will need to request a Coupon from the Treasurer (send an email request to treasurer@arlingtoncrew.org).   There is also a 10% discount per rower for families with more than one rower.  You will need a Coupon if you need to apply the 10% discount.

Rower Recruitment Incentive Program

In an effort to increase the quantity of new 8th and 9th grade rowers (especially new boys), the Arlington Rowing Association implemented a Rower Recruitment Incentive Program.  The following are details of the program:

  • Applies to registrations of new rowers for the Novice Programs and 8th Grade Learn to Row Program
  • The new Rower needs to register online and indicate in the registraion the name of the existing rower that recruited him/her
  • The existing rower that recruited the new rower receives a credit to their account at end of season (the new rower needs to complete the season)
  • The incentive rates are 10% for new Boy and 8% for new Girl (i.e. Novice Boy = 10% of $500 = $50, 8th Grade Learn to Row Girl = 8% of $200 = $16, etc.)
  • Please direct any questions to the Arlington Rowing Association President or Treasurer.
