In registering to participate in the Scotch Old Collegians & Community Rowing Club (SCOCCRC) Learn to Row program (LTR), each participant agrees to the following Terms and Conditions.
1. Each LTR program runs for a total of 10 sessions. It is expected that the participant attends all of the scheduled sessions to ensure full crews are able to be put on the water.
2. A completed registration form and full payment must be received to confirm your place in the program, until both are received, we cannot assure you a place in any scheduled program.
3. We are unable to offer “pay as you go” payment.
4. Once your place in a program has been confirmed, no refunds are able to be offered if you voluntarily withdraw from participating in the program, including as a result of illness. However, we will consider offering you a place in a subsequent program.
5. To ensure that we offer a quality program and provide a consistent platform from which everyone in the crew can develop, participants are allocated into set crews at the first session which we endeavor to keep relatively constant for the remainder of the program. For the fairness of other participants in the crew, we do not offer any refunds after the first session.
6. In case of bad weather (wind, rain, lightning etc.), sessions will still go ahead as scheduled, but no on-water rowing will be conducted to ensure the safety of all participants. This will be determined solely at the discretion of the LTR coach. An extended off-water session using the rowing machines will go ahead at the same time and venue.
7. Rowing is an activity that can involve strenuous physical activity, and a reasonable level of fitness is required to participate in the sport to its full extent. Participants with existing medical issues should consult their physician as to their ability to participate in the sport and our programmer. Please ensure that the LTR coach is made aware of any medical conditions that may affect your ability to participate safely in the program.
8. Due to the physical strength required to be able to participate in rowing, the Club has set a minimum age limit for participants in the LTR programmer of 16 years.
9. During summer, the Torrens River can be closed to on-water activity because of blue-green algal blooms. If this happens then sessions may be moved to off-water ergometer training.
10. LTR participants are not permitted to use the Club’s equipment unless supervised by the LTR Coach.
11. To ensure your safety and to avoid damage to our equipment, all participants are required to follow the directions and instructions provided by the LTR coach.
12. The use of the facilities & equipment of the Scotch OC &C Rowing Club shall be at each participants own risk, and that the club, its officers and members, shall have no liability for any injuries or damage resulting from such use.
13. SCOCCRC accepts no responsibility or liability for the private property that is left unattended on the Club’s premises.
14. After the 10 weeks of the Learn to Row program, if you (rower) decides to stay on with the Club then the financial difference between the Learn to Row and Casual/Active member amount is required to be paid.
