WHERE: Initially the team will meet in the Club’s Jamestown Erg Room and then move practice to Oak Hollow Lake as the weather warms. Click for DIRECTIONS.
RACING: In 2018 all rowers who attend practice regularly will race at regattas. See the Regatta Schedule for full details.
WHAT TO WEAR: Students should wear normal athletic attire suitable for the weather and flip flops rather than running shoes as participants will walk the boat into the water.
This program is designed for students in Grades 9 – 12. No experience is necessary but participants must be confident swimmers for safety reasons. New members must have a parent complete the waiver and swim form found on the registration page.
Is rowing for both boys and girls?
Where does the team row?
The team rows at beautiful Oak Hollow Lake and during inclement weather trains inside at our Jamestown Indoor Rowing Studio. For directions see this link
Are all practices mandatory?
No. So, if you cannot make it to all practice sessions that is OK. Keep in mind that like anything in life you only get out of something what you put into it. We find that the longer our rowers are on the team the more committed they become. If you cannot make a practice on a certain day please ask the coach if you can row on a different day instead.
What if I cannot start February 13 due to other sports commitments?
No problem. Just email Coach Gene with the date you are available to begin. Some of our rowers do not begin until mid March.
