Updates for 2017 include:
AARC is a member-operated, community club. Participation in our programs requires AARC membership and program subscription(s). Fees are paid based on the program and season.
All requests for memberships begin by signing our Joining Agreement & Rowing Waiver. Once signed, members can select from the programs below, review the links to learn more about our programs, sign up and pay membership and program fees online.
(To learn about all our programs, please read through our program guide on the "Membership" page or investigate the individual program pages.)
AARC continues to offer three on-water seasons: Spring (April, May), Summer (June, July, August), and Fall (September, October). This year membership fees are paid with programming fees and broken up into three seasonal chunks (Spring-$25, Summer-$100, Fall-$50) added to the programming fees, as listed below. Students and veterans pay a reduced $25 membership fee per on-water season.
Winter membership is combined with the on-land erg training program fee for all participants (Winter-$125).
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST SIGN UP TO ROW FOR EACH SEASON BY THE DAY BEFORE THAT SEASON BEGINS, OR YOU WILL BE CHARGED A $25 LATE FEE. Fees are not pro-rated due to absences or vacations.
For our 3 sweep programs, Technical, Open, and Competitive, the Spring programming fees are $110 for each program (competitive and open rowers row together during Spring season), but there are different programming fees for each of the three programs for the Summer and Fall seasons (see below). As in 2016, members may switch programs at season breaks, after discussing your switch with the coach from each program and paying the program fee difference (or requesting an account credit, if you wish).
Those who formerly signed up for Club Sculling will now sign up as Open/Sculling rowers, and are welcome to participate in sweep practices as well as club sculling practices. Open and competitive sweep rowers may also participate in club sculling practices, pending completion of LTS or sculling coach approval via skills test. Boats for sculling practices are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
