Fall 2020

Fall season will be a practice season. At this time, all regattas have been canceled or moved to a virtual platform. However, we see a great opportunity to strengthen the skills and conditioning of our team for a spring sprint season!

The season will begin on Tuesday, September 8th for varsity boats, and on Saturday, September 12th for novice rowers. The season will end on Saturday, October 31st for all rowers.

The cost is $600 for eight weeks of practice, 5 practices per week. Here is the weekly practice schedule

Water practices will be led by Coaches Loree, Nik, Isaac, and Zoe. We will practice in team boats and single shells as needed. We will do our best to accommodate rower preferences and appreciate everyone’s patience and flexibility as the Coaches make the best use of the equipment available to our club. Land practices will be led by Coach Courtney and will focus on strength, conditioning, and flexibility.

We will schedule a few team events, as gathering restrictions allow. This will include an Anacostia river clean up, intrasquad scrimmage towards the end of October, and perhaps more.
