Reminders About Practices

  • During Spring season, practice will be at the Anacostia Community Boathouse

  • Practices are mandatory once season starts.  You must email your coach if you are going to miss a practice. Unexcused absence means the rower will not row in the regatta that weekend.

  • Spring Break typically includes two a day practices in morning and afternoon and are required. Varsity rowers are aware of this. Novices, if your parents already made Spring Break travel plans for you, talk to the coach.

  • Dressing for practice - prepare for cold weather or rain or heat/sun, layers (Underarmor, long pants, no loose pants), must have sneakers every day, extra socks are important, cross training if we can’t get on the water

  • Fueling - read up on proper nutrition in fueling for races and workouts with this presentation: Nutrition For Rowers: Fueling Workouts & Races by Lauren Trocchio, RD, CSSD, CSOWM, LD (PDF)
