2018 Fall Rowing Season Registration

The Tempe Junior Crew Fall Season starts August 27, 2018 and ends early-December.

In order to register please complete the following steps.  All steps must be completed before a rower can attend practice.  Questions should be directed to membership@tempejuniorcrew.org.

Step 1 – Float Test

All Tempe Junior Crew rowers must have a Float Test on file with us.  If your rower has previously rowed with Tempe Junior Crew, they should have a Float Test already on file and you can skip this step.

If your rower has not previously rowed with Tempe Junior Crew, then we must receive a Float Test Form.  If you have previously rowed with another club, you can try to obtain a copy from them.  If you are unable to do so you will need to complete a Float Test.

Contact your local public pool or YMCA for Float Test availability.  Float Tests must be completed in a pool under the supervision of a lifeguard certified by the American Red Cross.

Please download the Float Test Form for additional information.

Completed Float Test Forms can be brought to the Parent/Team Meeting or scanned and emailed to membership@tempejuniorcrew.org.

Step 2 – USRowing Membership

Each rower MUST have a USRowing Championship Membership that will be valid through December 10, 2018.

  • New rowers must purchase a Championship Membership
  • DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A BASIC MEMBERSHIP.  The Basic Membership does not include the insurance Tempe Junior Crew requires.
  • Current rowers must ensure they have a Championship Membership and it does not expire before December 10, 2018.
  • All rowers must make sure Tempe Junior Crew is listed under Member’s Organization.  The Tempe Junior Crew Club Code is B6ATY.

All Fall rowers MUST attend with at least one parent/guardian.  Please know the dates of important events (e.g. SAT/ACT tests, AP tests, etc.) so you will know which regattas your rower can participate in.  Parents, please bring a checkbook to write post-dated checks for the regattas your rower will be participating in.
