2018 Spring Rowing Season Registration

The Tempe Junior Crew Spring Season starts January 15, 2018 and ends early-May.

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.
