Learn to Row


Western Reserve Rowing Association
is pleased to announce that Registration for August 8th and 9th 2015
Learn to Row
is NOW OPEN!
 
Learn to Row
We encourage all new rowers to enroll in our Learn to Row program - a one day comprehensive introduction to rowing, including two on-the-water sessions. A direct link to registration for Learn to Row (upper left, "register to row" blue button) and additional information can be found on our website Learn to Row page: http://bit.ly/1ggix5z
 
Date Change:
Please note that the dates of the August Learn to Rows has been changed to August 8 and 9 (not the 15th and 16th).
 
 
General Registration Information
After arriving at the registration site through the link on the program page, identify the session of Learn to Row for which you would like to register and add it to your "cart". At that point you will be prompted to login (or create an account if you do not already have one). After that is complete, continue through the registration process, digital signing of waivers, and payment.
 
Payment is by credit card. There is a $1.25 Transaction fee that is added to each transaction.
 
Note: activenet (our registration service provider) places some "ads" on the last two pages of "checkout" for magazine subscriptions and Active Advnantage. We have no control over these and want to alert our customers to them. If you are not interested in either of those, do not make any selection. Scroll to the bottom of the "magazine" page and hit "next", and then scroll to the bottom of the Active Advantage page and hit "No Thanks". Do not provide any other info on those pages.
 
If you have any difficulties registering, please contact
 
If you have questions about Learn to Row which are not addressed on the web page for the program, please contact SRL@westernreserverowing.com.
 
IMPORTANT:
Participants in the August Learn to Row sessions ARE NOT eligible for any 2015 Fall Rowing program. We limit fall rowing to experienced rowers for safety reasons: the river is crowded with scholastic and collegiate rowing crews, freighters and barges are using the same water, and diminishing sunlight. These conditions negatively impact our ability to safely teach new novice rowers. The next rowing opportunity for those taking the August Learn to Row will be in May 2016 with Summer Rowing League. We look forward to having you join us on the water then.

Merchandise

In the spirit of the SRL regatta...

WRRA will have club merchandise available during the SRL time trials this week.

SRL Regatta is Cancelled!!

The SRL Regatta for Tomorrow June 27th is CANCELLED!!!!

After reviewing the updated forecast for tomorrow (100% rain with chance flooding many areas PLUS high winds) we have decided to cancel the SRL regatta tomorrow.

While a few races potentially could be completed the river will likely be in poor condition with wind and debris and high risk shell damage (as well as to persons).


We are currently discussing a variety of options for the future.
