2020 Annual Memberships

New this year – Rowan’s Law.  

Row Ontario has been looking closely at current research, national sports and concussion groups to come up with a series of guidelines for Rowing Clubs in Ontario to follow. The Barrie Rowing Club is following these guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our athletes. Part of the policy in Rowan’s Law is also to educate both parents and athletes about concussions. The information guides for 15+ and 11-14 are found in the Forms & Documents section. Please indicate to us that you have read and understand the procedures and protocols of the Law by printing, signing and returning the RowOntario-Concussion-Code of Conduct-Athlete form found in the Forms & Documents section.

Annual memberships include access to all rowing times and year-round activities – regatta costs are not included.   Private Shell Owners (PSO) pay a $100 storage fee in addition to the annual membership and support fees.

Compulsory Refundable Support Fee for Annual Members

First year adults $80; returning adults $160; recreational students $80.  Competitive students do not pay a support fee.  They are expected to put in the hours on an honour system.
