Application & Fees

Adult Rowing Program

To become a rowing member of the Philadelphia Girls’ Rowing Club, you must first write a letter to the club telling us about yourself, your interest in rowing, and how you feel you can contribute to our club. After we receive your letter, you may be invited to attend our club’s membership information session, which is held once a year in late April. If you are invited to join, you will be enrolled in our adult rowing program, in which all new members are required to participate.

Visit our Adult Rowing Program page for more details.
