Joining BARC



Those who have successfully completed all four sessions of a rowing course class or have prior rowing experience and have been successfully checked out, may join BARC for the applicable quarterly fee. We have rates for individuals, families, and students. Fee structures and instructions are indicated below.


BARC-Trained Rowers

If you successfully completed all four sessions of a BARC rowing course during the spring or summer of the current year, congratulations!

To join, simply email classes@barchouston.org with the subject line "Learn to Row grad to join BARC."

In the body of the message let the treasurer know if you're joining as an individual, a family, or a student.

The treasurer will send you an invoice that you can pay online.

You will also receive a welcome email from the club membership director with useful information.
