SRRA normally does not include advertising on our website or emails, but we wanted to let you know about AmazonSmile. When you shop at Amazon using the link smile.amazon.com, Amazon donates 0.5% of all your purchases to the charity of your choice (and we hope that is SRRA). SRRA typically receives about $150/year in AmazonSmile donations. Get started at smile.amazon.com/ch/20-1086185.
Whether you have rowed with us before or are returning to the sport after some time away; all rowers with prior experience are welcome, including past Learn to Row participants. Come out and experience the beauty of the Spokane River whether your interests are recreational or more competitive. We have a range of boats from singles to eights.
Check the Calendar page for the most up-to-date schedule information.
Since most of us have not been in a shell for over a year, the coaches are going to help us get our confidence back by providing Learn to Row 2.0 for our sessions in June. Refreshing us on basic boat handling, technique, entering and exiting the boats, steering, water safety, etc. It will be a great opportunity to ask all your questions, remember which is starboard and which is port, how to orient the oar locks, and get us off on the right path to a great summer of rowing!
Regular season practices are open to all rowers with previous experience or who have completed one of SRRA’s Learn to Row sessions.
Please arrive a few minutes early to stretch, warm-up, carry oars to the water and be ready to jump in your assigned boat. There is no drinking water at Silver Lake or at the boathouse, please come prepared.
If you plan on rowing with the SRRA this season, you will need to submit the following items:
1. Rower Information: SRRA needs to submit a roster to USRowing with the names, addresses and USRowing ID number of all active rowers. SRRA asks that you provide contact information and USRowing ID prior to your 1st rowing session. To help us maintain our roster we ask that you register for our mailing list at www.spokanerowing.org/maillist.
- 2. Liability Release:
- Before SRRA can let anyone on the water, we need to have a current signed USRowing Waiver filed electronically at https://membership.usrowing.org. You will need SRRA’s organizational validation code QT79N if you have not previously registered with USRowing as a member of SRRA.
- USRowing no longer uses a paper/PDF waiver. The online electronic registration and release form is required.
3. Medical History: Please download and complete the Medical History form so we have some background information in the event of a medical emergency.
Bring forms to your first practice or mail it to SRRA at:Spokane River Rowing Association
