Junior athletes must be registered by a parent or guardian.


STEP ONE: Register with Rowing Canada as a Rowing Canada and Row Ontario member and pay your $45 Rowing Canada and Row Ontario 2018 membership fees. You must complete this step before registering in an Ottawa Rowing Club program.

Here are the detailed instructions:
1. Once you are on the Rowing Canada program page (click the Rowing Canada link above) click on the Join button for Rowing Canada and Row Ontario memberships.
2. Log in to your Rowing Canada member account or create a new account if you don’t have one.
3. Once you see the program page for 2018 Rowing Canada and Row Ontario memberships click Accept.
4. To pay the $45 fee (collected by Ottawa Rowing Club on behalf of Rowing Canada and Row Ontario via PayPal) select the Pay via External System button.
Once your Rowing Canada and Row Ontario membership fees have been received your registration with Rowing Canada and Row Ontario will be complete. You will receive a confirmation email when this is done.

STEP TWO: Register with the Ottawa Rowing Club in your program. This is where you pay the Ottawa Rowing Club program fee plus HST in the Ronin Online Registration System.  You will be put on a program wait list when you register and moved off the wait list when your 2018 Rowing Canada and Row Ontario membership has been paid (step 1) and verified. You will not be charged your program fee until you have been moved off the wait list.

HAVE YOU COMPLETED BOTH STEPS? Then you are REGISTERED in your program and we look forward to seeing you on the water!

Credit card statements: While most credit card statements say “RONIN* Ottawa Rowing Club (Competitive Program),” some credit cards and banks cut off a portion of the account information and registrants may only see (RONIN or PaybyRONIN).
