Watch Arlington Crew rowers in action:
Registration for the Spring 2015 Season is now available by selecting OnLine Registration above.
The cost is $500 and the season runs from 3/9/2015 to 6/7/2015 (Novices start on 3/16). There are 2 options for registration.
- JV/Varsity (rower must have completed two seasons as a Novice)
- Novice (no experience is necessary)
Novice registration has a more flexible reimbursement policy, 100% if made within the first 4 weeks versus prorated from 3/16/2015. There is a late fee of $50 for registrations not completed by 3/9/2015 for JV/Varsity rowers. 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
This Learn to Row program is only available to new rowers in 8th Grade . The cost is $200 and runs from 3/16/2015 to 6/7/2015. Rowers will learn the fundamentals of rowing and work with the Novice program coaches. Rowers in the 8th Grade Learn to Row program will not participate in any of the races, but will be encouraged to attend races.
To register, please go to Online Registraion by selecting the tab above.
The Arlington Rowing Association Board has decided to reopen registration for the winter conditioning program. It seems as if interest was much greater than the actual registration numbers indicated. The first practice will be next Tuesday 1/13 at Union Vale Middle School and we will hold practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the remainder of January, and then add Mondays starting on 1/26. Friday practices start on 2/13. Registration is available using the OnLine Registration Link above.
The calendar for the Winter Workouts is available here: Arlington Crew Winter Training Calendar_2015
We apologize for this confusion and hope that everyone who wishes to attend the program will register as soon as possible. For those of you that rented an erg this past Saturday, you have the option of returning it (we could use it for the program) or keeping it. Of course all rental fees will be credited or refunded.
The winter workouts are an excellent opportunity to prepare for the Spring season. Although attendance is not mandatory, rowers will get out of the program what they put into it. As such, they will be encouraged to attend as may sessions as they can. Although workouts are from 5:30 – 7:30, if you can only attend for part of the workout, please let the coaches know and they will work with you to accommodate your schedule.
Anyone that has previously registered for the Winter Workouts is already registered and does not need to re-register.
- JV/V Spring Season begins 3/9
- Novice Spring Season begins 3/16
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.
