Club-Based Registered Participants (Athletes, Coaches, Staff, Administrators, Board Members, and Volunteers)

All ROWONTARIO member clubs must ensure that anyone participating at their club is registered in the Rowing Canada Aviron Web Registration System (WRS). This includes athletes, coach, staff, and volunteers. Through WRS, all participants, or their parent/guardian, will sign the Rowing Canada Aviron Informed Consent and Assumption of Risk Agreement. For any club members who have not previously registered in the WRS, they can register on the log in page of the WRS.

Athlete Registration

All athletes must be registered in an active program associated with their club in WRS.

Other Registration

Clubs must ensure that anyone participating in a non-athlete role at the club also be registered in WRS. These roles include coaches, volunteers, staff, etc. To register these participants, first ensure they have a profile on WRS. Clubs can then, from the club’s main administrative page, add the participants under the appropriate role. Participants are also able to assign a role to their profile under the Register/Join tab when logged in to the WRS.

Please note that any individual participating in more than one role must be registered in each role.

Registration Fee

Some role registrations have a fee that accompanies the registration. ROWONTARIO will invoice the clubs directly for these fees. Invoices will be sent at the beginning of each month for the WRS registrations that occurred in the month prior. For the 2018-2019 membership year, clubs will be invoiced the following fees for the applicable registered roles:

  • Athlete: $25.00
  • Coach: $25.00

ROWONTARIO-Based Registered Participants (Umpires)

To be considered eligible to umpire, all umpires residing in Ontario are required to register with ROWONTARIO. By completing the following steps, umpires will meet the registration requirements for ROWONTARIO:
