Based on the ever changing nature of State and Federal guidelines surrounding COVID-19 response, the availability of the storage space as well as access to the water may be terminated at any time by the club based on the implementation of increased restrictions on person to person interactions, camp access limitations or other situations that would otherwise cause the river/camp/equipment to be inaccessible or present an unsafe situation. If this does occur you will have the option to maintain a credit for future programming/membership, donate your remaining membership fees or receive a refund for the remaining time-frame.


Please contact us at info@fvra.org if you have any questions about which membership option is right for you or to discuss a payment plan.

Please choose the pay by check method if possible to avoid additional processing fees from RegattaCentral. Thank you!

Membership dues must be paid before you can row on the water.

Masters Racing Team

The primary goal of the racing team is to bring together a group of motivated athletes who will work together over the season to perform as a group. The biggest determinant of success is commitment to the team and your personal improvement as a rower and athlete. The competitive team provides more time with the coach, additional on-water practice, structured training workouts on land and on the water, and a focus on racing strategies and readiness. Based on participation racing team members can row in 1x, 2x, 4x, 4+ or 8+. Racing team members have access to all racing privileges, services and equipment for the entire rowing season they have registered for. Seasons are spring/summer running from mid-April to July and then Fall which runs August through Oct.
