USRowing has added options to their individual membership. Here’s the current list:
•Basic ($7.75/year)—Required for all Station L members, and good for most regattas we attend.
•Basic + “Regatta Package” (add $40)–Required to participate in Regional Championship Regattas.
•Basic + “Coaches Add-on” (add $15)–for coaches
•Championship Membership ($65/year)–includes all benefits, including participation in National Championships.
A description of all categories is here
For some STL members, this is a net DECREASE in annual cost (unless you are thinking of attending masters nationals in Oakland this August)
To renew, go here
I’m finding that upgrading from “Basic” to “Regatta Package” is not a simple process the way their website is currently set up. One way that works is to go sign your waiver for this year here. Then click through to the waiver signing process and you are given an option to upgrade your membership. If you get stuck, email or call, 800-314-4ROW (4769) firstname.lastname@example.org
