What to Bring With You
- During the season you are expected to work out on your own during the off days. Running, push-ups, sit-ups, weight work, etc. are all good. The better condition you are in, the easier it will be for you to row and the faster the boats will go.
- Be sure to warm up before your practice and work on stretching and general fitness when off the water. Hopefully you have been working out over the summer and are in shape. If not, you'll probably have a few weeks, depending on which boats you are in, to get into good condition.
- For those who have not rowed before, and those who seem to forget, a few things to bring. Wear sneakers and layered close-fitting clothes that won't get caught in the seat.
- Wear clothes that you are not afraid to get dirty or ruin, tank tops, t-shirts and shorts.
- Wear running shoes and socks - we run and you do not want to put bare feet in the boat shoes.
- Do not wear baggy or long shorts as they get caught in the boat seats.
- Bring a hat, sunglasses (w/croakie) and sunscreen (spray on) if you need it.
- Please, if you use an inhaler, bring it with you, if you need an epi-pen, bring it!
NOTE: Bring a refillable water bottle...Do not share bottles as this is a great way to pass around illness!
