Registration must be completed by a Parent or Guardian.  Only athletes with completed registrations and a verified swim form/test will be permitted in a boat.

Swim Test:  All athletes should know how to swim and be comfortable around the water.  For those that have not previously completed a swim test at SJRC or have a signed form on file, please click the link below for our swim test form and have it completed/signed by a certified swim coach or lifeguard.  Meeting our swim requirements through alternative means such as signed proof of swim team participation or a copy of an athlete’s valid lifeguard certification are also acceptable.  Please submit a completed copy of the certificate form
