2021 Fall Registration


(Check back for openings during Winter Registration)


2021 NOVICE BOYS still have openings to register


We’re so excited to get back to a regular season out on the water and the Fall 2021 season is looking promising.  We've put together this helpful page to assist you in getting registered and provide answers to the most commonly asked questions including cost, payment plans, applying for financial aid, schedule and team trips.

Our fall regatta schedule isn’t solidified yet, but most of our regular regattas are beginning the registration process and we are optimistic that a normal practice and racing schedule will be finalized.  The Fall 2021 Fee is $1100 (Early Registration = $1,000).

Thank you for supporting SICR and your rower.  The impact that rowing has on our high schoolers’ lives is both incredible and indelible: from the obvious benefits of daily workouts to their physical well-being to the phenomenal impact on focus, determination, tenacity and leadership.  We look forward to working with all of our athletes as they realize these benefits now and as they move into college and their professional lives.


Welcome Back! The Fall season means that entire online registration as well as all the hardcopy pages must be completed.
