Join Lake Merritt Rowing Club


LMRC is open to all members of the public with rowing experience. If you do not have prior rowing experience, you will need to take a rowing class before using club equipment. Experienced sweep and sculling rowers wishing to join a coached team can arrange a drop in with an LMRC team to see where they best fit with their skills. Experienced individual scullers wishing to join the club need to demonstrate proficient rowing and boat-handling skills in order to use club equipment.

Those registering online do not have to submit any paperwork other than the swim test for new members (see below). New members not paying online must fill out the LMRC Membership Packet 2016-2017 and submit it to the Membership Coordinator. Renewing members must fill out the Membership Renewal Form. Other forms can be found here here.

Also, basic (free) membership in US Rowing is required by LMRC. You can sign up here using LMRC Club Code: 76KBR
