Welcome to Bhs crew 2021-22

BHS Crew is emerging from a year-and-a-half of Covid sheltering in place, restrictions on practice, and no regattas, with more interest and enthusiasm than ever before. Welcome all! This is going to be a huge year for the Berkeley High Crew.

Mark your calendar! There will be an outdoor, in-person information session for novice and prospective novice families at 10 am on Saturday, August 28 at the BHS Crew Boathouse at Jack London Aquatic Center (see map).


Here are a few things to keep in mind. Detailed information will come soon.

  • Crew is back for the 2021-22 season and looks set to have the largest team in years.

  • The 21-22 season will start on August 30, 2021. Practice schedules will be published soon.

  • We're accepting new novices to join our 45+ men and women varsity rowers.

  • Crew is a no-tryout, no-cut sport. Any BHS student who wants to put in the hard work will get a chance to participate in crew. (Space is not unlimited, however, and is always subject to available resources).

  • Crew is supported by rower fees and donations that support rowerships to make sure Crew is available to all students.

  • Your athlete will need to get doctor's permission to participate in Crew. The health form is here: Forms.

  • Registration, Part 1: School sports registration on Family ID.
    Note: Although the site says registration is "closed" and that the Crew season does not start until Spring, actually registration for Crew is still open and we will have a Fall season as well.

    How to Register.

  • Registration, Part 2 (you can do this in parallel with part 1 above). Team registration on TeamSnap (see link).
    All participants must submit a signed
    Participation Agreement which covers, among other things, COVID protocols.

  • Active crew team members will receive PE waivers.

  • Carpools: Parents who drive carpools of crew athletes to practice or regattas must fill out this registration. Remember, students cannot under any circumstances drive other students. They can drive themselves only.
