Hello and welcome to ASU Sailing. We have been active in connecting people through the sport since 2004. Our main programs are adaptive sailing, sail training and competitive sailing. For more information, see our website at

If you read all about us and are ready to join there are several registration requirements which need to be taken care of before you can participate in the club. These are a float test, SDFC registration and pay your club dues.

Float Test

You need to be able to demonstrate that you can tread water for 10 min., swim a lap and put a life jacket on and get out of the pool with whatever clothes you would be wearing while sailing.

The float test can be administered by any Red Cross certified lifeguard. The SDFC pool doesn't charge anything, but you can take it to a City of Tempe pool and they will charge five dollars to get it done. Just remember to bring the float test form with you. You can download the form here.

SDFC Registration

First pay the SDFC registration fee. This can be done by going to and search for sailing.  You only need to pay an annual fee of $25 since we are an off campus club. Anyone who is not a current student must purchase a SDFC Membership.

Once you get that done, please register yourself online with the SDFC. Go to this link to join:

Club Dues

If you ARE interested in being a part of the traveling racing team (traveling to California for regattas) you will owe the club $250 per semester. This includes your transportation, hotel, and entry fees for each regatta, as well as your sailing practices and involvement with all club events. If you are NOT interested in joining the traveling racing team, but would like to learn how to sail, be a part of our adaptive sailing program and other community outreach events, and go to our fun team-building activities, you will owe $150 per semester. There is also the opportunity to race locally against the Arizona Yacht Club. You can decide after the first few weeks of practice if that is something you would like to pursue.We take cash, checks and money orders. Checks should be made out to ASU Sailing. Without your dues, it would be impossible for the club to keep doing the things we do.

Did you follow all that to this point? Congratulations! You’re part of ASU Sailing.
