Fall Rowing Season Registration

The Tempe Junior Crew Fall Season starts September 8, 2020 and ends early-December.

Fall Registration for all Tempe Junior Crew Rowers:

All steps must be completed before a rower can attend practice.  Please read carefully.

Note Regarding Scanning and Emailing Documents: If you do not have a scanner, but have a smart phone, you can scan your signed paperwork with the Adobe Scan app available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play.  Please do not send multiple photographs of your documents, please use a PDF app.  All documents should be scanned and emailed 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.

Rowers who have lifeguard certifications may submit their certification in lieu of a Float Test.

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.

Coach Peter will be conducting Float Tests for all new Tempe Junior Crew rowers who have not previously done a Float Test.

If your rower needs to complete a Float Test when you submit your Waivers and Rules packet, please make sure our Membership Chair is aware of the need to schedule a Float Test.  Please direct questions to membership@tempejuniorcrew.org.
