Waivers & Insurance Coverage

2017 USRowing Insurance

The United States Rowing Association is the national governing body for the sport of rowing in the United States, as defined in the United States Amateur Sports Act of 1978.  US Rowing was founded in 1872 as the National Association of Amateur Oarsmen, the first national sports governing body, and became the United States Rowing Association in 1981 to reflect the broad purposes of the organization. The Rondout Rowing Club is covered by the 2017 USRowing Insurance program.

ANYBODY USING OUR BOATS MUST  join or renew a membership with  USRowing.  This must be done every spring before rowing.  Enter your USRowing user name (the 7 digit number you used to register) and your password   Our  club code is:  MRLHA.  The fee as of this writing is $7.75 for a “basic” (not championship) membership.  However, if your basic membership has not expired (if you did it last year in March or April), it will not ask you for money.

Once you have joined or renewed your USRowing membership, return to the same screen and click on the right hand button “Members” of the Individuals box and scroll down to “Sign Waiver”.   Note:  you will be asked a series of questions which, if you get the answers wrong, will give you the right answers.  It is a survey and failing the question has no effect on your membership.  Please keep a copy of the receipt sent to you when you do this.  You may need it to prove compliance.   If you have problems please call the toll free, member services line at 1-800-314-4ROW (4769) or e-mail or member services center at members@usrowing.org. They are open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Eastern Time).

Finally, agree to terms and conditions
