2021 SPRING SEASON
SPRING REGISTRATION: Registration will open Monday, March 22 2021. Please follow the instructions below, Thank you!
*** Please Read ...
THE REGISTRATION PROCESS: Our sport has six steps necessary to complete registration. Each step is audited as a condition for us to operate crew. So ... if your athlete has not completely registered, it will create delays.
Please help our volunteer registrar by reading carefully and not skipping steps. If you're unsure about something, simply email the registrar, Michelle Magner at email@example.com as we'd like to get our 100+ athletes practicing as soon as possible. Athletes that do not have all their paperwork in cannot participate. Athletes pulled from practice due to incomplete registrations impact their entire boat by keeping others on land when they could be out practicing on the water. Thank you for your help getting our entire team out on the water as soon as possible. We greatly appreciate it!
Please remember that uniforms are required for racing.
STEP ONE: REGISTER AND PAY WITH HINGHAM HIGH CREW.
Please use the button below. Please DO NOT send any money directly to Hingham High School. The fee per athlete for the 2021 Spring Season will be $895 for Coxswains and Rowers. Payment plans and family discounts are explained at the crew registration site as well.
STEP TWO: REGISTER WITH HINGHAM HIGH SCHOOL
This step lets the Hingham High School Athletic Department know that your athlete is participating in crew. If you already registered your athlete as participating in crew for both Fall and Spring on Aspen, you may skip this step. If not please follow the steps below. The Hingham High School Athletics Department is very aware of who has registered on their system for a sport; they have and will pull your athlete from training if this step is not complete.
DIRECTIONS FOR X2 ATHLETIC REGISTRATIONS
In the Fall, if you know that you are going to join crew for both seasons, you can sign up for both seasons at one time. If you change your mind about a sport that you signed up for, please notify the athletic office of your change by sending an email to the following address:

STEP THREE: JOIN (OR RENEW) US ROWING AND SIGN WAIVER
Please read the following as the US Rowing website can be confusing. The link to get to their website is at the bottom of this section. If you are already a US Rowing member, please check your expiration date and renew if necessary.
US Rowing provides insurance for our athletes. To activate the insurance, all rowers are required to join US ROWING'S basic membership and sign the waiver. The basic membership fee is $9.75. This is the insurance that covers your rower at regattas. Without this in place, your athlete cannot row.
The US Rowing membership is on an annual basis from the date of first time you sign up.
If you have joined in the past, you can use your membership number or your email address to search by your name. Your membership must cover the entire rowing season.

REGISTRATION POLICY INFORMATION: FEES, REGISTRATION LIMITS, REFUNDS, CREDIT CARD PROCESSING, FINANCIAL AID
Rowing Participation Fee: Our fees cover only our operating costs, including coaches’ salaries, regatta fees, gas for coaches’ launches, and travel expenses for boats and rowers. We receive some funding from the school for bus transportation. All equipment is purchased through fundraising efforts of the team. We offer financial aid for those in demonstrated need and a sibling discount off the participation fee for the second child in the program.
Registration Limits: Team size is limited by our equipment, coaching resources, and safety considerations. To the extent possible, Hingham High Crew will not cut rowers from our program. However, in the event that enrollment exceeds resources, cuts may be necessary, at which point refunds will be issued.
As with all athletic teams at Hingham High School, there are no refunds after registration payment has been made. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Registration Insurance: Our registration vendor has made available a registration insurance plan. The cost is 7% of each athlete's registration fee. Registration insurance will cover the full or prorated portion of your athlete's registration if your athlete cannot complete the season for health related reasons.
You may purchase this coverage only at the time of registration; it is similar to a travel insurance policy but covers the rowing registration fee for the season.
Visit this link to learn more about the insurance coverage. If you have questions about the product, please call the toll-free number on the FAQ page. HHSRA must refer all inquiries to the insurance provider.
Financial Aid: It is the policy of Hingham High Crew not to exclude anyone due to financial reasons. Financial Scholarship is reviewed and is awarded on a seasonal basis based on demonstrated need*.
*Demonstrated Need: Any rower participating in the free or reduced lunch program is a candidate for a scholarship. We do not ask for financial information, but do ask for justification as we have a limited number of scholarships.
Please contact, Hingham Crew Registrar, Michelle Magner at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
