Learn About Our Crew Teams

We would like to help you find your place at ARC.  We have morning and evening, club and competitive sweep programs, as well as sculling shells for certified member use.  Although we do not have an organized sculling group, we have many independent scullers happy to make your acquaintance and join you for a row.  Please read about Our Crew Teams for information and contact our Membership Coordinator to be put in touch with our Group Coordinators.


If you are a sculler, you will need to be certified by an ARC representative prior to using any sculling equipment. Please contact one of our Sculling Coordinators for more information:

If you own a boat you would like to store it at ARC, you must be a Full-Time Member.  Please contact our Boathouse Captain for availability.

Lastly, please be prepared to complete ARC member requirements.  All ARC members must:

  • Register for at least a Basic US Rowing Membership (please visit or link their current membership to ARC using a Club Code offered during registration

  • Update their US Rowing Release of Liability waiver accessible through their US Rowing account

  • Confirm their swimming proficiency during ARC registration

  • Complete SafeSport training

  • Volunteer for an ARC committee


Proficiency in other motorless water sports, like kayaks, canoes, and SUPs, does not qualify as rowing experience. If you have no prior experience rowing in crew shells, we invite you to check out our Learn to Row program for more information and contact our Programs Coordinator with any questions:
