2019 Learn To Row Program 

Information Meeting 8/29 at the Holswade Boathouse in Robious Landing Park

New Candidate Registration is OPEN!

Below are very important details and prerequisites. Please read the following information carefully.


This Fall, we are accepting any new members that wish to try out our program, and are committed to the team as a "Learn to Row" candidate. The first practice will be the first week of school, and registered students will be contacted in advance regarding a MANDATORY new member meeting prior to the first practice.

Application for the Fall 2019 season will open August 23, 2018 until September 9th 2019, and will be online only. To begin the process during the application period, simply click on the "REGISTER" button at the top right corner of this website. Select "Fall 2019 New Members" as the event you are registering for.

Step One: Complete the online registration application on this website when it's open after August 23, 2019. To begin, click in the top right corner of this page on the word "Register". Payment can be made online by credit card, or turn in a check with the documents below in step two.

Step Two - Download and complete the following forms from this website, under the "Forms" heading:

1. VHSL Medical Form - This must be completed by a physician after 5/1/2019
2. HCA Medical Info Form
3. Medical Release and Emergency Contact Form
4. Swim Test form - Must be completed by a certified lifeguard or swimming instructor
5. JRHS Athletic Handbook - Must sign and return the last two pages
6. Parent/Athlete Concussion Form

Other forms will be required for accepted student athletes, but for now this is what the school requires we gather in advance.

These documents must be completed and returned prior to practice and drop off to:

Mrs. Phelps
James River HS 
Room 2101

If paying by check instead of credit card online, checks should be mailed or dropped off to:

Midlothian, VA  23113

(Please place documents in the plastic box on covered front porch)

For general questions or problems with registration, please contact: Dawn Delano by email:  [email protected]

Finally, get your other forms ready over the summer including the required physical dated 5/1/18 or later and swim test.  No student can participate if any form is incomplete. We look forward to your participation on the James River HS Crew team!

The JRHS Crew Team is the largest team in the school, and completion of the Fall Learn to Row program is a prerequisite for anyone wishing to join the team.

Important: Students considering participating in JRHS CREW for either Fall or Spring are required to complete the James River High School Learn to Row Program. Participation in any other rowing program does not exempt you.  Participants will learn all the basics of the sport of rowing, from boat rigging and handling to on-the-water racing. Sessions are held directly after school every Tuesday and Thursday beginning the first week of school, and coaches may dictate Saturday morning practices also.
