In the fall, we offer an introductory Crew Camp for 9th grade/novice rowers. Sessions are held Monday's and Wednesday's from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm in September and October. The Crew Camp is designed to prepare athletes for winter training and the spring racing season. Please email Coach Yarnall ( ) to get additional information or to register. Varsity and novice rowing is available to all students in the spring.

There are five steps to register for varsity rowing (grades 10 - 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 2018-19 Fall Athletic Registration, select Fall Crew, and complete the rest of the form. Fall registration is available to students in grades 10 - 12. Students in 9th grade should email Coach Yarnall ( about our Crew Camp for freshman/novice rowers in the fall.

Step 4: 
Stonington Crew relies on rower fees and fundraising to operate. Fall fees are $375 per rower because we participate in public regattas. Fees can be paid by check or online. To pay online, visit the team store, click the varsity letter "S" and follow steps 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, Patty Harriman 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.
Be sure to also join our ​​​​ email list to receive important updates on the team including pre-race details, announcements, events, helpful information, fundraising, and volunteering opportunities.
