2020 Registration

Registration Open with restrictions

See our COVID-19 page for updates


Registration will be open to only experienced single scullers during the initial phase of opening.   We fully understand that this will be disappointing to our members who do not fall in this category, but appreciate your patience, and we have to keep the safety of our coaches, volunteers, employees and members paramount.


The DRC Board of Directors is defining experienced single scullers as the following, which is also outlined in the detailed COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).


When the club first opens, only experienced single scullers will be allowed on the water. The club defines an experienced single sculler as:

  • Having race experience in a single

  • Having at least one season of training regularly in a single (3 or more times a week)

  • Feels confident getting back in a capsized boat

To limit risk and contact between coaches and athletes, the board reserves the right to refuse a member to row based on experience.


If everything continues to go well, we will slowly open up registration to our less experienced scullers in the upcoming weeks. 


If you are identified in this group, you will be contacted directly to when you will able to start rowing.  If you have any specific questions regarding this, please contact Club President, Jenn Durward directly:  jenniferdurward@gmail.com.
