Financial Aid


Whatcom Rowing Association provides need-based youth and adult financial support. Financial Aid funds are awarded based on need AND the participant’s ability to meet attendance and participation expectations. If awarded financial aid, athletes must:

  • Attend 75% of practices
  • Volunteer 5 hours per season
  • Attend one community event per year

With the help of our donors, we set aside thousands of dollars for financial aid every season to ensure that no one is turned away from rowing regardless of income. WRA has provided over $13K in scholarship assistance to rowers in need. 

Partial and full aid is available. The information you provide will be treated confidentially, and will be used only for eligibility determination. Funding awarded on a case by case basis.

2022 Novice Adult Programs

Program Registration – We will evaluate programming every two weeks to see if we need to make any changes related to Covid protocols or athlete experience. Registration for each session will be live on the WRA website two weeks prior to the start date. 

This program is for athletes looking to get back into rowing after taking time away from the sport or for those that have completed Learn to Row 1 or 2 with WRA. At this time please reach out to for more information.
