Two Week Trial Information

  • To take advantage of the Two Week Trial option, register on a laptop or desktop using the registration process, and STOP after completing the "Info" section of the registration process.  Be sure to click the "Save & Continue" button at the bottom of the "Info" section. You will be added to the team and will recieve team communications. You will notice a asterisk(*) by your student-athletes name, and that simply lets us keep track of who is taking part of the free trial. It will be removed when registration is completed. The system will automatically save your place and you will be able to return and complete the process, after the free trial period, without re-entering your data again.  Remember your TeamSnap login so you can pick up where you left off later.  If you decide not join, we will simply delete your partial registration after confirming you don't plan to join.

Boys and Girls are welcome, but you must be a new incoming or current student at Hillsborough High School, middle school, virtual school or homeschooled in Hillsborough County.  We need rowers and coxswains.

If you need a ride to the boathouse from school make sure you have emailed a completed Transportation Policy. The team will meet immediately after school at the flagpole in front of the school. They will meet there only the first 5 days of school. Juniors or seniors run carpools. Your parent will need to pick you up from the boathouse after practice at 6:15pm.

If you are interested in a carpool after the first five days of school, make sure you email the club to see if there is a seat for a rider available and where to meet.

What to Wear: Wear athletic workout clothes and running shoes, socks that can get wet, hat, sunscreen, and a water bottle.  Water and ice are available at the boathouse.
