Summer Competitive Season
This is our “fun” season, where the varsity are enjoying the rewards of six months’ worth of fitness, and we welcome our largest novice class of the year! Once school is out, practices are in the morning, so that our rowers have the rest of the day to go about their lives (sometimes it’s a job, sometimes it’s hanging out and helping out with the rest of our summer programs!)
Varsity rowers will have an opportunity to do things not available during the other seasons: perfect their skills rowing on the “wrong” side, practice advanced balance drills, and run safety/rescue drills. Additionally, there are optional strength/conditioning sessions geared towards helping the enterprising rower achieve their goals for the following year: this includes younger varsity members chasing a Personal Record or a seat in the 1v/2v, and college-bound rowers who want to make sure that they are able to be contributing members of their new team right away.
Summer is the most important season for our NOVICE SQUADS. The quiet calm of the lake in the mornings coupled with the lack of school, make for a perfect Summer Competitive Season environment in which to really pick up the sport of rowing and become a part of our team’s fabric and culture. We do not have enough room on this page to fully extol on the virtues and benefits of rowing with us, so we will leave you with this: you (or your child, if you are parent) will end your summer with us in the best shape of your life (assuming decent attendance) in the company of (quite possibly) your new best friends.
Our Club has been working hard to develop safe practices as we return to rowing in light of the current COVID crisis. We have developed a Covid Preparedness Plan to review hygiene, mask wearing, cleaning protocols, symptom checking and potential exposure guidelines.
Every Summer 2020 participant and a parent or guardian is required to participate in a pre-season Zoom COVID Training. This training as well as a signed “Acknowledgement and Release” must be completed prior to participation in any Club events, practices or meetings.
