How do I register?
You can register for Bedford Crew from the Athletic tab of the high school website. Once you’ve filled out the information, turn in your forms and payment (in person) to the BHS Athletic Department. You will then be emailed confirmation from Bedford Crew with more information.
Do I need any equipment or special clothing?
You will need a good pair of running sneakers and spandex shorts. Required racing tank is issued (loaned) through BHS (replacement cost $45). Additional recommended clothing is available as well. All other equipment is supplied by the Bedford Crew.
How much does it cost?
There’s no way around it. Crew is an expensive sport. The registration fee is $500, due before the beginning of each season. There is also a required uniform tank (about $45, issued through the team). We do have an application for financial aid for those who might need help with the fee. We are trying to maintain a balance between affordability and the ability to row. Given all that, we strongly believe there is a fantastic return on investment.
