Fall Regattas are comprised of a series of time trial/head-to-head races, as opposed to sprint/side-by-side races which take place in the Spring competitive season.
Fall Season Timeline
Fall practices begin in August and continue through November.
***Note re. Fall 2021 season: New Guidelines will be forthcoming, stay tuned for this space***
*If a rower will not be at practice, he must email coach Jon by noon of that day!
*Practices are held Monday - Friday 3:30pm - 5:30pm at the boat house located at 149 Elmwood Ave.
*The boys run together to the boathouse, leaving the senior parking lot at McQuaid at 3:00 p.m. One senior is designated to drive all of the boys' gear and back packs to the boathouse.
*Practices on Saturdays and days when there is no school or there is a shortened school day are scheduled at the coach's discretion. Prior notification will be sent out to confirm.
