What are the Fall and Spring Seasons?

  • Both the fall and spring seasons provide rowing instruction, interscholastic scrimmages and competitive rowing experience.
  • Dues for the each season are $700 (Spring 2021 will be $600).
  • All rowers must sign a new code of conduct form for each season.  Medical and photo waivers must be signed if the rower is new or the info has changed. 
  • All rowers must have a signed swim test form on file.  Swim tests are periodically held by the team at Shaker High School.  If rowers are participating before a swim test is to be held, a swimming competence certification form signed by a lifeguard or parent must be turned in before a rower can participate on the water.
