- Athletic clothing you can easily move in – matching weather conditions. Aside from high winds or thunderstorms, we’ll be on the water.
- A towel and change of clothes in case it rains or you want to go swimming after practice.
Parent involvement is important to our success. Due to the weight of a 60ft. boat, parents are asked to help kids get their equipment down to the docks before practice and back to the racks after practice. Parents are also invited to attend and observe all practices, but may not interfere with a coach’s ability to conduct practice.
For those parents who would like to try rowing, we recommend taking a learn 2 row class. We also offer an adult rowing program throughout the season for those who want to continue or possible compete.
Waivers & the Rower’s Handbook
We recommend all parents and rowers review our updated rower’s handbook and history, tips & terms documents before registering. All participants must sign and submit our waivers and release of liability before being allowed to row.
