Registering for any St. John’s Rowing Club program gives participants three levels of membership for the year: membership with the St. John’s Rowing Club (SJRC), membership with Rowing Newfoundland (RNL is the provincial rowing organization) and membership with Rowing Canada (RCA is the national rowing organization). Required RNL ($20) and RCA ($25) membership dues are already incorporated into the SJRC program fees and are paid only once per year per rower.

Program registration proceeds through an online system operated by Rowing Canada, at The steps involved are a bit complicated, so we have created a step-by-step illustrated guide, which can be found here. The registration process includes a participation and liability waiver for each rower, review of the SJRC code of conduct, and either a certification of your swimming ability or acknowledgement that you must submit a swim test form (available here).

Once you have registered for the correct program through the RCA website, you must pay for the program by etransfer from a Canadian bank to [email protected] If you cannot make etransfers, please contact the club to make other arrangements.

A participant’s registration will not be activated and rowing will not be permitted until fees have been paid. When fees are received, your registration will be activated by SJRC administration and an email confirmation will come to you at the email address entered online. Please note that RCA insurance, which covers all club activities and members, is only available for activated registrations.

E-transfer Payment Instructions

To send an e-transfer to the club, please note the following:

Email address for the transfer: [email protected]

Question and answer for your transfer: “What is our sport?” answer “Rowing”

Important Details: E-transfers will be processed by the club treasurer or another board member, NOT your (or your child’s) coach. The person processing your transaction may not know who you are, who your child is, or which program the fee might be for. Therefore, in the message box for
the e-transfer, PLEASE enter the following information:

  • –  The full name of the rower – not just the name of the person making the payment. Last names may differ, and we won’t know whom the payment is for.
  • –  The program you or your child is in. Please include this even if you are paying for something other than a program fee.
  • –  What you are paying for and how much for each item (e.g. adult learn-to-row program fee, junior competitive program fee, a hoodie, or a list of items and amounts).  If you have two children rowing, you may pay for both with one transfer as long as we have this information.

Please do not use “my child’s name” as the security question for your e-transfer. Again, the person processing the payment may not know you or your child.
