Registration for all 2017 programs is now open!

Registration consists of two steps;

STEP ONE: Register with Rowing Canada as a Competitive or Sport member. Athletes in the ORC’s Competitive, Masters and Para-Rowing programs must register as a Competitive member. Athletes in all other ORC programs register as a Sport member.

 You must have a Rowing Canada membership prior to rowing at the Ottawa Rowing Club.

STEP TWO: Register with the Ottawa Rowing Club in your program. This is where you pay the Ottawa Rowing Club program fee and your *Rowing Canada and *Row Ontario fees in the Ronin Online Registration System. 

HAVE YOU COMPLETED BOTH STEPS? Then you are REGISTERED in your program. Junior athletes should be registered by a parent or guardian.

* Athletes who have already paid their 2017 Rowing Canada and Row Ontario fees, either under another program registration or with another club, will have the RCA and RO fees refunded.

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).
