AND . . . Please review the following important information.

Cancellation of practice
We practice in all weather except active lightning storms or other extreme conditions. Because our weather changes rapidly, rowers should assume practice will be held regardless of the weather and dress appropriately, unless they are told by a member of the coaching staff that practice has been cancelled.

Registration limits
Team size may be limited by our equipment and coaching resources, and safety consideration.

The first two weeks of practice in each season will serve as a try-out period. Any participant who is unable to continue in the program due to these restrictions after the try-out period will be refunded.

Evaluation criteria include, among other things, a positive attitude, full participation in workouts, and the ability to pick up the fundamentals of the rowing stroke.

Milton High School Crew participation fee
The Milton High School Crew participation fee is $650. Our fees cover only our operating costs including coaches’ salaries, regatta fees, gas for coaches’ launches, and local travel expenses.

REFUND POLICY
Refunds will be given within the first two weeks due to injury, membership limits, or if a student decides the sport is not for him/her.

As a 501 (3) © organization, your contribution to Friends of Milton Crew is tax-deductible.
