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 scullers need to demonstrate proficient boat-handling skills in order to use club equipment. Once a member joins, he or she will meet with a coach to complete this checkout process.
Contact the Membership Coordinator if you would like a tour and introduction to the boathouse.
The membership year begins October 1, 2012 and ends September 30, 2013. Membership in the Lake Merritt Rowing Club is $360 per year for individuals, $216 per year for full-time students, and $216 per year for second and subsequent club members of a family living at the same address (all if paid by October 31, 2012). Half-year installments (Oct.-Mar. and Apr.-Sept.) are $200/installment. For new members only, dues are pro-rated at $35/month until the next half-year installment date. Fees are waived for members who participate as coxswain or coach. Please see the Membership Application for full dues information.
NOTE: All information regarding membership dues is subject to change without notice.
All members are required to spend 12 hours per membership year helping to maintain club equipment in periodic work parties or projects organized by the Boathouse Manager or Volunteer Coordinator. The option of buying out volunteer hours at the rate of $20/hour is provided for members who are unable to complete the annual requirement.
