Registration

Registration is a multi-step process. All parts are vital to ensure your rower’s eligibility to participate in crew. Some items are required for winter conditioning, but ALL are required prior to on-the-water practice. Coaches are not allowed to let student athletes participate in either winter conditioning or spring practice if their registration is incomplete. To ensure your rower is eligible to practice, please follow the guidance provided below.

REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS 

Winter Conditioning - Rowers need to complete the following by November 16, 2017 in order to start winter conditioning. 

1. Online Registration - Ronin Registration – This is the online registration service the WTW Crew Team uses. During registration you will provide relevant data and select how you wish to pay your dues.

2. VHSL Physical Form - Your physical must be dated May 1, 2017 or later and needs to be on the correct form (Revised February 2017). Submit completed physicals directly to the Athletic Trainer, Ms. Fickes, in Room C158. Please make a copy of your physical before submitting it. It may take up to 5 business days for the Athletic Trainer to review your physical and reflect its clearance on the compliance report. 

3. Online Concussion Training - There are two different training programs, one for parents and one for student-athletes. Both the student-athlete and one parent must complete their respective training. Allow at least 5 business days for training to be reflected on the athletic trainer’s compliance report. Because the FCPS online program has had a few ‘glitches’ in the past, we request you complete the training ASAP. To increase your chances of the online training working the first time, please follow this guidance from FCPS: "Due to circumstances beyond our control the online verification program is not compatible with Internet Explorer nor Chrome. Please use Firefox or Safari to complete the program. We are sorry for the inconvenience." 

4. Student Emergency Care Form - An ECF needs to be completed every year. Please complete this form online before printing. Illegible forms will not be accepted. (New rowers – If you submitted a typed copy of this form during Green Days, you do not need to submit another one at this time.) 

5. Field Trip Driver’s License and Vehicle Insurance Information Forms - 
  • Student Form - Use this form if your rower has a driver’s license and plans to drive to practice and/or local regattas. 
  • Parent Form - Parents/guardians living locally need to complete this form. 
For rowers participating in Winter Conditioning, the Emergency Care Form and Field Trip License and Vehicle Insurance Forms, along with initial payments made by check, need to be mailed or hand delivered by November 16, 2017 to: 

WTW Crew Membership, c/o 8623 Hepplewhite Ct. Annandale, VA 22003 

On-the-Water Practice - Complete items 1-5 under Winter Conditioning Requirements PLUS 

6. Swim Test - Every rower is required to pass a swim test certified by WTW Crew prior to participating in on-the-water practices. Passage of this test is required only once. The next time this test is administered will be in January 2018. Specific details will be provided through the weekly email update.

7. US Rowing Membership - US Rowing memberships are valid for 365 days from the date of purchase. Your dues cover the cost of your US Rowing membership. WTW Crew Team purchases/renews memberships for registered rowers. No action on your part is required. 

8. US Rowing Waiver - After the team purchases/renews your US Rowing Membership in January 2018, you will receive notice to sign your rowing waiver. Although memberships are good for 365 days from the date of purchase, the US Rowing waiver expires every December 31st. If you are 18 or older, you may sign your own waiver. If you are under 18, your parent must sign the waiver. 

9. FCPS Participation Policy - The coaching staff will talk about and distribute the participation policy form on the first day of practice. Please read, sign (both parent and student athlete) and return to the respective coach. 

The previous 9 registration requirements, including full payment of dues, must be completed and submitted by February 19, 2018 in order to participate in on-the-water activities.
