Camp 1 - Strength & Sculling, May 28-June 27

1. New Registration Options for 2020-2021

1. Option to drop RCRC Membership prior to Jan 1, with second dues payment canceled. Recognizing that this is an unpredictable year for many members, RCRC will cancel the second dues installment for members who:

  1. Sign up for the 2 payment plan when registering online,

  2. Email info@rivercityrowing.org by DEC 29, 2020, notifying the club of their intent to cancel membership this year

 

2. Option to sign up for Team Coaching on a quarterly basis. As teams will be running differently this year until we are back in team boats and it may be difficult for some members to adjust their schedules, RCRC will cancel a quarterly coaching fee payment for a member who chooses to NOT participate in any team practices/trainings for that quarter. To register for coaching on a quarterly basis:

  1. Sign up for the quarterly payment plan when registering online,

  2. Email info@rivercityrowing.org prior to the start of quarter which you will NOT be participating in

  3. To rejoin team practices, email RCRC and quarterly coaching fees will be charged from the month you rejoin.

What's New at RCRC

Spring 2021 Junior Rowing Team
Priority registration, for athletes on the Fall 2020 roster: Dec 22-Jan 2
As of 12/16, there is a waitlist for new Varsity and Novice athletes.
RCRC will invite athletes on the waitlist to join if space opens after Jan 2. We encourage any athlete whom we cannot include on the team this spring to sign up for a Summer Learn to Row class (registration opens in February 2021)
In Spring 2021, the RCRC Junior Rowing Team will train in single person boats, which naturally distance athletes while building team cohesion. Teens are at their best when they have extracurricular activities that inspire them, physical fitness for healthy living, and a team of friends that strive together towards common goals. While we cannot race these months, we can enjoy and gain the same mental and physical benefits that training with a team provides. And build the foundation for future fast racing! Come be part of the RCRC Junior Team this spring.
Novice Team: no experience necessary!
Health & Safety at RCRC
RCRC classes are taught in small team boats and/or single person boats.
Please read the class description for the class you are interested in, to review the requirements to row in team boats, which may vary by program. In all classes, participants may choose single person boats only when signing up. If you are interested in signing up for a class and have questions about how health and safety concerns are mitigated at RCRC, please email info@rivercityrowing.org
