Step 2: Sign up below. Practices start Monday, August 28th, but you can join any time throughout the season until February. We encourage athletes to join the group sooner rather than later so that they will miss as little instruction as possible.



Fee for the Novice try-out period are $200. The cost of the fall season (September through December) is $1,650 and spring season (January through May) is $1,650.  Rowers continuing beyond the try-out period will have their initial fee credited towards their total fall fee. Please visit for more information on the costs and expenses associated with the team. 

Payment is due before the first day of practice. Norcal is not able to extend refunds to athletes who voluntarily quit or are dismissed from the team due to disciplinary reasons. Injured athletes are encouraged to participate on a limited basis, working around their injury, until normal practices resume.


Norcal Crew does offer financial assistance to families in need.  For new athletes, please submit our financial aid application and mail it to the address on the form (different than our team mailing address) as soon as possible. Keep in mind that we have a limited scholarship fund; please only request the assistance that you need.  The financial aid application must be re-submitted each fall.
