Master Rowing Incentives and Discounts:
• Master rowers new to WBC are offered a free 3-week trial period to sign up and row at any scheduled masters practice. A digital swim verification form and liability waiver form is still required to be signed prior to their first row.
• If there are two or more master rowers in a household, one rower pays full price ($350) for annual dues and the remaining master rowers in the household each get a $100 discount and pay $250.
• If there is a Junior (HS or MS) rower in the household, each household master rower pays $250 for master annual dues and the HS and MS rowers pay reg price.
• Participants in a Learn to Row/Scull program opting to join WBC as a Master rower, your prorated annual master dues will be discounted $50.
WBC will offer three Learn to Row (LTR) classes for sweep rowing and one Learn to Scull (LTS) in 2023. The fee for all LTR/LTS classes is $150 for WBC members and $200 for non-members. After completing the class, non-members are encouraged to row at scheduled WBC masters practices for 3 weeks to practice their skills at rowing and to determine if they would like to join the club. If a LTS or LTR graduate opts to join the club, their annual dues are credited $50 for taking the LTS or LTR class.
WBC will also offer, at no cost, sculling refresher sessions provided by an instructor for scullers who haven’t rowed for a while to get more comfortable sculling and those scullers who would like to upgrade their current sculling qualification. These sessions will be held over a few April and May weekends. Read the Sculling Program block on this webpage for more information.
WBC also supports the National Learn to Row Day (June 3 & 4) by offering free introduction to rowing sessions to the general public on Saturday and Sunday, June 3 and 4.
