  • This year, things may be different and in order to create the safest, most workable program for our rowers, we will need to be flexible with our plans.  Below is our current schedule. 

  • Practices will be based on a 2-week rotating schedule beginning with girls on Tuesday, 8 Sep, and boys on Wednesday, 9 Sep. The last day of rowing will be Friday, 20 Nov.

 

Each period will be as follows.

  • Girls - Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, then Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

  • Boys - Monday, Wednesday, Friday, then Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.

Weekday sessions will be 3:00pm - 5:30pm, while Saturday sessions will be 9:30am - 11:30am.  We understand that a 3pm start time might be too early for some of you because of when your high school classes get out.  However, since schools are not all ending at 3pm each day, please get to rowing as soon and as safely as possible.

Coxswains will be in high demand. So feel free to show up for any session!  This applies for High School Coxswains showing up for boys AND girls practices.
