2020 Spring Season:
There are five steps to register for varsity rowing in the spring. 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. ​Due to concerns about COVID-19, practices have been cancelled. Please register when we know more about the spring season.  
Step 1: 
An annual USRowing membership is required. Existing USRowing members may need to renew their membership through the season. If rowers are not currently a member, please join as an Individual on the USRowing member 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). Steps 1 and 2 need to be completed before a rower can go on the water, which may be soon after our move-in day at the Seaport, March 14th. 

Step 2: 
Complete the USRowing 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 Spring Athletic Registration, select Boys Crew or Girls Crew, and complete the rest of the form. This must be completed before March 21, the official beginning of the SHS spring sports season.

Step 4: 
Stonington Crew relies on rower fees and fundraising to operate. Spring Season fees are $225 per rower. Fees can be paid by check or online. To pay online, visit our Square page, click on the Spring Rower Fee item 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. Please include your rower's name. 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, Geoff Bosse our FOSC Treasurer ( to learn more. This must be completed before our first race on April 11.

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.  This must be completed before March 21, the official beginning of the SHS spring sports season.
