The Tempe Junior Crew Spring Season starts Monday, January 13, 2020 and ends early-May.
Registration for rowers who rowed with TJC for the Fall 2019 Season:
If you rowed with Tempe Junior Crew for the Fall 2019 season, all you need to do is fill out this registration form for the Spring Season.
Then see Steps 6 below for payment information.
Registration for rowers who did NOT row with TJC for the Fall 2019 Season:
If you were not registered for the Fall 2019 Season with Tempe Junior Crew in order to register please complete the following steps. All steps must be completed before a rower can attend practice.
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 email@example.com.

Step 2 – USRowing Membership
Each rower MUST have a USRowing Championship Membership that will be valid through December 10, 2019.
- All rowers must purchase a Basic Membership plus Regatta Package or a Championship Membership. (The Championship Membership includes a magazine subscription to USRowing’s magazine)
- Current rowers must ensure their USRowing membership does not expire before December 10, 2019.
- All rowers must make sure Tempe Junior Crew is listed under Member’s Organization. The Tempe Junior Crew Club Code is B6ATY.
- If a rower does not have the proper USRowing Membership, they will not be allowed on the water.
Step 3 – Tempe Junior Crew Spring Membership Application
Each rower must complete a Spring Membership Application online. Your rower will need to have a valid USRowing Champion Membership number and expiration date before filling out the application.
Step 4 – Review the 2019-2020 Tempe Junior Crew Parent/Athlete Handbook
Please download the 2019-2020 Tempe Junior Crew Parent/Athlete Handbook. Parents and rowers will both need to sign an acknowledgment in the Waivers Packet that the handbook has been reviewed.
Step 5 – Print and Sign Waivers and Rules Packet
Each rower and parent/guardian must read and sign (in all applicable places) the 2019 Fall through 2020 Summer Waivers and Rules Packet. These waivers will be good through Summer 2020.
The signed waiver and rules packet can be brought to the Parent/Team Meeting or scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you recently completed an Intro to Row, you should have already turned this in.
The signed waiver and rules packet should be scanned and emailed to email@example.com.

All Spring rowers MUST attend with at least one parent/guardian. Please know the dates of your other important events (e.g. SAT/ACT tests, AP tests, etc.) so that you will know which regattas your rower can participate in.
