    Join us on Sat. April 21 for our spring work party (8am-11am). Cleaning will begin at 8am after our Saturday morning practice. 

    The dock and launch hoists are in but we still need help cleaning up the boathouse in preparation for the on-water season. There is plenty of work that needs to get done both inside and outside the house. 

    If you did not help with dock-in you are encouraged to attend this work day.

    Free coffee and bagels!

    MRC is offering a new, 6 session program for rowers who would like to have additional early season, technique-intensive coaching in a small group format.  We're calling it "Technique Tuesday".  

    When: Tuesdays, April 24 - May 29,  5:25am-7am

    Where:  MRC Boathouse

    Who:  All rowers who come to morning practices are eligible

    Cost:  $90/rower for the 6 sessions, all of which would go to the MRC equipment fund

    The program accommodates 8 rowers.  First come first serve for sign up.

    Each rower must attend all sessions or find a sub.

    Sessions will be on the water in an 8+, or on ergs if weather prevents rowing. 

    Focus of the sessions will be technical (ie lots of drills, square blade rowing, half boat rowing).

    Sessions will be videotaped for subsequent review.

    1.    Body swing, release (body mechanics,     tapdown)    
    2.    Catch preparation and slide control
    3.    Catch and drive initiation
    4.    Drive (body mechanics, blade depth, pressure     on foot stretchers)

    Rowers should sign up for practice on our Google spreadsheet by 5pm the night before practice on. 

    Please show up at the boathouse on time, or even better a few minutes early, so that we can get the launch & oars ready to make the most of our time on the water. 

    On days you are uncertain about the weather, still plan on showing up - sometimes the conditions turn out better than anticipated. We will also be able to work on our fitness on days we are not able to got out on the water. Even if you missed several days or weeks in a row, you are always welcome. You can easily pick up where you left off as new learn-to-row graduates will be joining the group at the beginning of each month throughout the summer.
