In the fall, we offer an introductory Crew Camp for 9th grade/novice rowers. Land training and water sessions are held Monay and Tuesday afternoons and Saturday mornings from September 16th to October 19th. The Crew Camp is designed to introduce 9th graders to the awesome sport of rowing and prepare them for winter training and the exciting spring racing season. Participants can register on the Novice Rowing Camp Page. ​ There is no fee to participate. The schedule will be finalized soon. Varsity and novice rowing are available to all students in the spring. 
There are five steps to register for varsity rowing (grades 10, 11, 12) in the fall. Following the steps below, participants must join USRowing, sign the USRowing Waiver, register with Stonington High School Athletics, pay the fall rower fee, and have a current physical on file with the SHS nurse.  
Step 1: ​​
An annual USRowing membership is required. If rowers are not currently a member, please join as an Individual on the USRowing web site. Fill in your details, choose Stonington High School Crew Team (USRA #924) in the Club or Team Name field. Enter our club code (SFLWT). This will bring you to the USRowing Stonington Crew roster and waiver portal. Follow the instructions to register as a Basic Membership ($9.75/year) or Championship Membership ($45/year).  

Step 2: 
Complete the waiver and you will be set for a year of racing! 

Step 3:
On the FamilyID site, simply log in to your existing account or create an account. Select or search for Stonington High School (CT) Athletics. On the next page, select 2019-20 Fall Athletic Registration, select Fall Crew, and complete the rest of the form.
Step 4: 
Stonington Crew relies on rower fees and fundraising to operate. Fall season fees are $375 per rower and include entry fees to public head races. Fees can be paid by check or online. To pay online, visit the  2019 Fall Registration Page  to pay by credit card. If you prefer to pay by mail, checks should be made payable to "FOSC" and sent to P.O. Box 242, Stonington, CT  06378. FOSC wants every student to have an opportunity to experience the wonderful sport of rowing. Payment plans and financial assistance are available. Please email, in confidence, Dave Youtt our FOSC Treasurer ( to learn more.

Step 5: 
All rowers must have a current physical on file with the SHS nurse. Rowers must update their physical if it expires during the season. Alternatively, the rower's doctor can fax a bridge note specifying the upcoming appointment date to the school nurse.
