There is also a $25 non-refundable registration fee, regardless of the payment option chosen.
Only choose Scholarship payment plan if you have been awarded a crew scholarship by the HHSRC Board of Directors.
Two Week Trial
If you would like to sign up for crew but not commit right away, choose this payment plan. You will only be charged the $25 registration fee at registration check out. Once you decide to continue, we will invoice you separately.
Out of State/Overnight Regattas
Costs for major out-of-state/overnight regattas are not included in semester fees. Our team will travel to Chattanooga, TN for the Head of the Hooch Regatta in the Fall Semester. There will be a separate fee of $250 to cover regatta registration fees, hotel for rowers, shell and equipment transportation, coaches' travel expenses and other miscellaneous costs associated with a travel regatta.
In State/Long Distance Regattas
Costs for regular regattas, that are a bit farther way, but still in State, are not included in semester fees. Our team (varsity only) will travel to Jacksonville, FL for the First Coast Head Race in the Fall Semester. If parents and rowers wish to travel the day before and stay at a hotel, they are free to do so at their own expense.
Uniforms are purchased at the beginning of the Fall Season. Returning rowers have the option of using the previous year uniform. Uniforms cost $85. All rowers will be measured for uniforms at the same time so one order can be placed. Uniforms are required to race at any sanctioned rowing event.
Scholastic National Championships
Rowers qualifying for SRAA Rowing National Championships will have the opportunity to travel to that regatta with the team in the Spring Semester. Only rowers qualifying for and participating in National Championships need to pay this fee. That fee will be determined at that time, but is typically $300.
While the Official Fall Registration deadline has passed, we are always willing to consider late joiners. If you have been hearing how fun Crew is at school and you think you missed out, it's not too late! You can go ahead and register and simply show up at practice to get started. Also send an email to email@example.com and let Mike know you just registered. You can also call 863-825-6025 and talks to Steve about your particular situation.

Since rowing is a water sport, rowers must demonstrate basic swim skills in front of a certified life guard at some point during the first few weeks of practice. Rowers only need to do this once. If a rower passes a swim test during a HHSRC Learn to Row camp, or is a returning rower, he or she does not need to be tested again. Emails will be sent to all participants with information about the swim test during the first week of regular practice.

In order to take advantage of the Two Week Trial, you must choose installment payments when filling out the registration form. You will only be required to pay the $25 Registration fee. If your rower decides to not stick with rowing, you will not be responsible for the remaining installments. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let Amy know, and she will cancel all remaining payments.
