WINTER CONDITIONING January 12th to early March Monday - Friday | 3pm - 5pm | Erg Room Saturday | Hours determined by coach, but generally rowers are done by Noon.
Winter conditioning is an integral part of the Spring racing season. It prepares rowers for success by building strength and endurance. The weeks in the erg room are as important as water practice. Coaches will consider requests from rowers to participate in another sport if it provides comparable workout.
WATER PRACTICE Early March through season (as weather permits) 5am - 7am | Cooper River
This year the entire team will be practicing in early mornings. The benefits to this time include: much less traffic on the river; better water conditions and rowers are free after school. The Club recognizes the inconvenience of the early hours and will work with parents to arrange car-pooling for shared responsibility.
It will be cold in the morning. Be sure to dress appropriately.
TOOLS: Each rower is responsible for having two (2) 10 mm wrenches and one (1) adjustable crescent wrench. They will be used to rig the boats.
