Summer 2017 NRC JUNIOR LEARN TO ROW Registration


Summer 2017 NRC JUNIORS Registration

The summer LEARN TO ROW is open to new students only.

Intro to Rowing is our basic introductory sweep class, which will get you on the Neponset River and learning the basics in no time. It’s perfect for Middle School (7th and 8th grade) and High School students of all fitness levels and previous athletic experience! Class begins in a stable 8-person or 4-person boat in which you will become familiar with rowing terminology and the fundamentals of technique while learning to row in a fun group environment. Upon successful completion of Intro to Rowing, students can progress to Novice Sweeps. After that, if you’re interested in rowing competitively, you can try out for our Fall Boys’ and Girls’ Competitive teams.

AND . . . Please review the following important information.

Cancellation of practice
We practice in all weather except active lightning storms or other extreme conditions. Because our weather changes rapidly, rowers should assume practice will be held regardless of the weather and dress appropriately, unless they are told by a member of the coaching staff that practice has been cancelled.

Registration limits
Team size may be limited by our equipment and coaching resources, and safety consideration.

The first two weeks of practice in each season will serve as a try-out period. Any participant who is unable to continue in the program due to these restrictions after the try-out period will be refunded.

Evaluation criteria include, among other things, a positive attitude, full participation in workouts, and the ability to pick up the fundamentals of the rowing stroke.

Refunds will be given within the first two weeks due to injury, membership limits, or if a student decides the sport is not for him/her.

As a 501 (3) © organization, your contribution to Friends of Milton Crew is tax-deductible.
