After You Register
Thank you for signing up with RBC.
Note: This page has been tested with Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. If you run into issues, try a different browser.
If you registered for a “Power10” single class, then you are already rowing with us this session and do not need to provide any additional info. We’ll be adding your name to the Google doc, so you are all set. (As always, check the Google doc for last minute weather/other cancellations.)
If you registered for a “Single Row” single class, and you are already rowing with us this session, you do not need to provide any additional info. Add your name to the Google doc for the class you have requested, then watch the doc for approval of your request. (As always, check the Google doc for last minute weather/other cancellations.)
If you are new to RBC or this is your first time rowing with us in 2018, please complete the steps below.
IMPORTANT: These are the things you must do before your first class:
You have already completed the following tasks. Thank you!
- US Rowing Paper Waiver
- US Rowing Membership
- US Rowing Electronic Waiver
- RBC Enrollment and Waiver
- Google Doc Request
You still need to complete the following tasks. Please make sure to do so before your first class!
Please bring cash or check (payable to RBC) for $ to your first class.
US Rowing Membership
Beginning in 2017, ALL rowers must be members of US Rowing. This requirement is not within our control. There is a yearly fee of $9.75. Join or renew here: https://membership.usrowing.org/
Make sure to select Rochester Boat Club as your affiliated organization.
US Rowing 2020 Waiver
Complete the US Rowing online waiver (you must join US Rowing first, if you’re not already a member). This waiver needs to be completed once per calendar year, so if you’ve already done so for RBC in 2018, you can skip this step.
- Click here.
- On the left side of the page (where options for Individuals are shown), click Members.
- From the drop-down list, click Sign Waiver, then follow the instructions.
(Note that there is a four-question quiz, but it’s meant to be educational. No one sees or does anything with your answers, so no worries about wrong answers!)
RBC Enrollment and Waiver
Fill out the enrollment and waiver form.
This form needs to be completed once per calendar year, so if you’ve already done so for RBC in 2017, you can skip this step unless any of the information you’ve provided has changed (address, email, phone number, emergency contact).
You must complete this before your first class.
Request Google Doc access
At RBC we use a shared Google sheet (“the Google doc”) for day-to-day sign-ups for each class. An instructive document can be found here: Google101.
Note: If you don’t already have a Google account, you’ll need to create one. It’s easy to do, free, and doesn’t require that you create a Gmail account. And if you need help, we’re happy to walk you through it.
Here is the link to the Google Doc: Session Google doc — click here
Clicking this link will do one of two things:
- First take you to a Google login screen (where you can log in), –OR–
- Take you directly to the page where you can request access to the shared doc.
Once you request access we will grant it (usually quickly, but please allow 24 hours) via your Google account. You’ll be notified by email.
Note: The Google doc signup pages (date tabs) will not be editable until the day before the session starts. Visit the Google doc after that point and before noon on the day before your first class, in order to move your name to indicate your planned attendance. Sounds complicated, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a piece of cake!
Using the Google Sign-Up Doc
RBC uses a Google Sheet to list the rowers’ names for a given practice, and as a communication vehicle for absences, weather cancellations, social events, regattas, boat assignments, and club news. Please make yourself familiar with this valuable shared document.
You’ll need to set up a Google account, if you don’t already have one. Click the link below for instructions on setting up your account and using the Google doc. (Click the version that corresponds with the current rowing season — indoor rowing OR outdoor rowing.)
