In an effort to increase the quantity of new 8th and 9th grade rowers (especially new boys), the Arlington Rowing Association has decided to implement a Rower Recruitment Incentive Program for the 2014 Spring Season. 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
- Retroactive to cover all spring 2014 registrations
- 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.)
- Only applies to the Spring 2014 Season, we will reevaluate for the Fall 2014 Season
Please direct any questions to the Arlington Rowing Association President or Treasurer.

Registration for the Spring 2014 Season is now available. The cost is $500 and runs from 3/1/2014 to 6/7/2014.
There are 2 options for registration.
- JV/Varsity (rower must have completed two seasons as a Novice)
- Novice (no experience is necessary)
Note that the Novice registration has a more flexible reimbursement policy, 100% if made within the first 4 weeks versus prorated from 3/1/2014.
There is a late fee of $50 for registrations not completed by 3/15/2015.
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 email@example.com). 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.
A new program is being added for Spring 2014. This Learn to Row program is only available to new or returning rowers in 8th Grade . The cost is $200 and runs from 3/1/2014 to 6/7/2014. 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 the home races.
