Summer Rowing Camp

TJC Summer Rowing Camp 2021

Tempe Junior Crew Summer Rowing Camp is a great way for experienced rowers to stay in shape and prepare for the Fall season as well as being a great way for new rowers to continue practicing what they’ve learned in Intro to Row and decide if they want to join the team for the Fall season in starting September 8th.  Rowers from all teams and clubs are welcome to participate in TJC’s summer rowing camp.

COVID-19 and Summer Rowing

TJC is following the CDC’s recently updated recommendations affirming that participants who have been fully vaccinated (defined as 2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine) are not required to wear masks. Nevertheless, participants will continue to be requested to adhere to established safety guidelines of social distancing and good hygiene practices including washing hands as a matter of practice.  Face masks are required in the boathouse by anyone who has not completed their vaccinations.  Note that multi-seat boats will be put back into use again this summer, and masks are not required when participants are on the water.

New rowers are required to complete an Intro to Row (ITR) prior to their first summer camp session.  Schedule details and pricing for upcoming ITR’s can be found under the Programs and Registration tab. If your teen has never rowed a shell before, do not sign them up for Summer Camp unless and until he or she has completed an Intro to Row course.

TJC Rower Signup

If your teen did NOT row with TJC in the Fall of 2020 and/or Spring of 2021, please skip to the Non-TJC Rower Signup below starting with ‘Step 1’.

If you rowed with TJC in the Fall of 2020 and/or Spring of 2021, fill out this online form (TJC Rowers ONLY):  TJC Rower 2021 Summer Camp Online Signup

That’s it, just go to the bottom of the page for payment instructions.

Non-TJC Rower Signup

If you did NOT row with TJC for the Fall of 2020 and/or the Spring of 2021, please follow these steps to sign up for Summer Camp.  This includes new rowers and rowers who have been with other clubs.

ALL STEPS MUST BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO THE FIRST DAY OF CAMP

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 (please confirm that this is the case by emailing membership@tempejuniorcrew.com first).

If your rower has not previously rowed with Tempe Junior Crew, then we must receive a completed Float Test Form.  If you have previously rowed with another club, we will accept a copy of the float test they have on file.  Have your coach send an email to membership@tempejuniorcrew.com stating that you have previously completed a float test and are a proficient swimmer.  If you are unable to do so you will need to complete a Float Test.

Contact your local public pool, gym, or YMCA to inquire about Float Test availability.  Several participants have also been able to complete their tests at the Kiwanis Pool in Tempe as well as the Cactus Aquatic & Fitness Center in Scottsdale.  Regardless of where you get your test, 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.

Once completed, Float Test Forms should be scanned and emailed as a PDF to membership@tempejuniorcrew.com.  If you don’t have a scanner available to you, consider downloading an easy-to-use scanning app to your phone like Adobe Scan.  As a last resort, if you do not have access to a scanner or a smartphone that will work with one of these apps, please bring the paperwork with you to the first day of camp.

Step 2 – USRowing Membership

Each rower MUST have a USRowing Basic PLUS or Championship Membership that is valid through August 14, 2020.

  • New rowers must purchase a Basic PLUS or Championship Membership
  • DO NOT SIGN UP FOR JUST A BASIC MEMBERSHIPThe Basic Membership does not include the insurance Tempe Junior Crew requires in order to allow your participation.
  • Current rowers must ensure that they have either a Basic PLUS or Championship Membership and that it does not expire before August 14, 2021.
  • All rowers must make sure that Tempe Junior Crew is listed as the Member’s Organization.  Tempe Junior Crew’s Club Code is B6ATY.

Go to: US Rowing Join or Renew Membership

Step 3 – Complete TJC’s Summer Rowing Camp Application

Each new rower must complete a Summer Camp Membership Application online.  Your rower will need to have a valid USRowing Basic PLUS or Championship Membership number and expiration date before filling out the application.  You will also need your rower’s medical insurance information.

Fill Out: Tempe Junior Crew 2021 Summer Rowing Camp Application

Step 4 – Review the 2020-2021 Tempe Junior Crew Parent/Athlete Handbook

Please download the 2020-2021 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.

Download: Tempe Junior Crew Parent/Athlete Handbook

Step 5 – Print, Sign, Scan and email an electronic copy of the Waivers and Rules Packet

Each rower and parent/guardian must read and sign (in all applicable places) the 2020 Fall through 2021 Summer Waivers and Rules Packet.  These waivers will be good through Summer 2021.

The signed waiver and rules packet can be brought to the Parent/Team Meeting or scanned and emailed to membership@tempejuniorcrew.com.

If you recently completed an Intro to Row, you would have already turned this in.

Download: 2020 Fall through 2021 Summer TJC Waivers and Rules Packet

The signed waiver and rules packet should be scanned and emailed to membership@tempejuniorcrew.com.

Again, if you do not have a scanner, but have a smartphone, you can scan your signed paperwork with the Adobe Scan app available in the Apple App Store and on Google Play.
