What: Mendota Rowing Club Learn to Row and Summer Novice Membership. This includes rowing with us for the rest of the summer! After completing class, you are invited to Novice practices on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings until August 31.
Note: Class content will depend on the current covid-19 conditions. We will be teaching either sculling in singles, or sweep rowing in 8-person boats, depending on Public Health recommendations. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Note about times: We will have a one-hour break for lunch each day. You can easily walk to a restaurant near the Capitol to get carry-out, or bring your lunch. We have space for your things inside the boathouse.
Swim test: Rowing is a water sport and it is important that you feel confident in the water. Prior to the first class, all students must take and successfully complete the Swim Test. Please see our Swim Test page for more details. If you have any doubt about passing the test, please plan to take it more than a week before class starts (so you can get a refund if necessary).
Bad weather: If we have to cancel any part of class on the first weekend, we'll make the time up the following weekend.
Once you're registered, we'll set up a group text with students and instructors so we can communicate quickly.Good weather:
if the weather is perfect on the first weekend of class, then you'll be done! The second weekend is scheduled just in case we need it.
Covid-19 protocols: Masks are required inside the boathouse and at all times while on land. Please bring one with you. We disinfect everything we can, but you might still like to bring your own small bottle of hand sanitizer.
