Adults can either join as Full Members at an annual membership fee of $500, or they can select from various coached adult rowing programs. Rowers who choose to join various coached programs do not need to pay the annual Full Membership.
Full Members, who are fully proficient in rowing, can row at their own convenience, as long as the boats are not used in a formal program.
Two coached programs are available to adults who have basic rowing skills:
Early Morning Masters program.
Adult Development program.
Coaching can also be purchased either by signing up for a Private Lesson ($45 fee applies per boat), or negotiated with one of BCRA's coaches, if coaching is desired on a regular basis.
Please make sure to sign up for each program.
