Required forms

The following forms are required for participation in the rowing programs at Green Lake. In order to be allowed to participate in practices all forms must be signed and turned into the office on the first day of crew. If you have questions as to whether you are current on paperwork please contact the office. You may register for courses online, or by using  this form.

All rowers must submit the following forms:

Float Test: Most classes at Green Lake Small Craft Center require a participant to pass a 10-minute float test. Wearing long pants and a long-sleeved shirt, you will float or tread water for nine minutes, at which time the lifeguard will throw you a life jacket which you will put on in the final minute. You can see how to properly and easily put on a life jacket while in the water in this YouTube video. Float tests can be taken at any swimming pool or beach and must be under the supervision of a lifeguard certified by the American Red Cross. Float tests are valid for three years. Contact the office to find out if your float test has expired.

Assumption of Risk & Release Form: This form is needed from every participant of an activity at Green Lake Small Craft Center, and expires at the end of each calendar year. Participants under the age of 18 must have the form signed by their Parent or Guardian. It is an e-form and will automatically be e-mailed to the office on completion. No need to bring it in to the office.

USRowing Waiver: The waiver and paid membership are completed online. The USRowing waiver is valid for the calendar year and is required for competition at any regatta. The paid membership is valid for a full year from the month of payment and is required only for competition at the USRowing Youth Regional Championships in May, the USRowing NW Masters Regional Championships in June, and USRowing Youth National Championships in June.
