Fall 2016 Technical Training
CLICK HERE to see a list of our current programs on RegattaCentral
Join us for the inaugural year of the WBC Fall Technical Training Program!
This program offers middle and high school students (12-18 years of age) with some experience (learn to row, summer camp, and/or previous WBC program), who are not interested in rowing competitively a chance to get out on the river for 3 coached practices per week for the duration of the fall season. The ten week season kicks off on Tuesday, September 6th and wraps up on Thursday, November 10th. This program will have a very similar structure to our very popular Summer Recreational Program & the level of coaching will be the same. While you won’t be attending regattas you will be improving with every practice & will also be working hard enough to maintain an aerobic base for the upcoming winter season.
For athletes who have NO previous rowing experience please look into our Fall Learn to Row classes. CLICK HERE for more information.
Rowers participating in this program will be expected to:
- Attend practices three days per week, with any absences excused in advance (and kept to a minimum). Practices will be Tuesday & Thursday, 4:00-6:00p (drop off no earlier than 3:45p, pick up by 6:15p) and Saturday, 8:45-11:30a (drop off no earlier than 8:30a, pick up by 10:45a).
- Be open to training in either sweep or sculling boats.
Practice in the fall is mandatory each day. If you have an unavoidable conflict (doctor’s appointment, school function, etc.) you should let your coach know well in advance. If you are NOT at school because of illness, you should probably NOT come to practice, but you SHOULD inform your coach of your absence.
Practice is RAIN OR SHINE at the Hines Rowing Center. Carpools are highly encouraged!
Head Technical Coach to be named soon, check back often for updates.
