All active rowers must pay the annual membership fee to USC Rowing Association to participate in the rowing program during that year/season.
Our rowing program is a year-round coed rowing program with distinct seasons; Fall, Winter and Spring. While it is not required for Junior and High School rowers to participate year-round, it is recommended that rowers participate as much as possible to continually improve, in terms of technique and strength. Our winter season is at the USC highschool. We do offer the opportunity for a seasonal membership.
There are two levels of membership, Fort Couch and High school.
- Our Junior (Fort Couch) rowers are Middle School students (grades 7 and 8). They practice 2 days per week and 2 Saturdays per month.
- Our High School rowers (grades 9-12) practice typically 4 weekdays and Saturday mornings.
We offer the option to row for one season, add only the winter season, or row for a full year. If you choose to row for a full year the winter season is free.
During Fall and Spring Season, students will be picked up from USC High school by school bus and will be brought back to the high school at the end of practice.
The association thrives on the efforts of parent volunteers. If you plan to volunteer, as a driver, chaperone, or site volunteer, you must have the USC School District volunteer clearance.
For those rowers that join after the Registration deadline (commencement date for the season), they shall use their start date as their payment deadline.
