How Covid -19 has changed Rowing Registration.
At the time of this writing, the state of Illinois is still working through the phases to quarantine/social distancing. Specific dates related to when sporting activities resume are still fluid.
That said, SICR is planning on a fall season. In order to start as soon as we are given the go ahead we want to have all of our paperwork in order, gear ready and additional safety measures/supplies on hand at a moment’s notice. Things like ordering uniforms for new rowers has a (2) month lead time, so we are planning to start now to be ready for Fall season.
We have decided to reduce any confusion with registration, we will keep the registration process identical to past years with one exception. We will NOT be collecting fees at time of registration.
This allows for flexibility for several issues.
As we get closer to our first regatta we will inform all rowers when fees are to be paid and if the amount is reduced.
This registration website will explain what is required in order to register, provide a downloadable registration packet, allow you to complete the on-line contact information portion, sign up for participation, provide a link where uniforms can be purchased and submit payment. To complete registration through our secure site, please have your Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checking account information available. Following the completion of this registration, you will see a charge on your account. You will also have the ability to request financial assistance and/or payment plan.
NOTE: During the registration process, there is no "back" button, however, you will have the opportunity to edit any information during the "Review" process
