Rowing Meeting Wednesday 23 Oct
by Sophie Gilchrist - Friday, 18 October 2013, 2:35 PM

Hi everyone,

There is a parent meeting at 7:30pm in the staffroom next Wednesday for all parents of rowers (rowers themselves do not need to attend). This is to do some planning for our first regatta in a few weeks' time and discuss any other planning matters for the season. 

Please also at this time, ensure that your rower has handed in their registration forms.... either to myself or Mrs Hunt.

See you all there!

Coach Sophie

Training (starting Nov 26)
by Sophie Gilchrist - Monday, 26 November 2012, 1:16 PM

Hey Rowers,

As discussed on Sunday at the end of the regatta, training this week will be the same as previous for Novices with the inclusion of an erg after your row.

Intermediates and Seniors need to come down every day (Tues, Weds, Thurs) and will also do an erg on one of those days after their row.

It is really important that you all attend training! See you tomorrow.

Training singlets and caps
by Karen Hunt - Wednesday, 28 November 2012, 4:39 PM

Kia ora

Mr Lowe will be taking orders for rowing singlets and caps at training tomorrow. Each novice rower is expected to purchase one training singlet ($25) and one cap ($15). Some may want to purchase two training singlets so there is a spare when one is in the wash.

Rowers from last year are asked to bring their training singlets to training tomorrow so they can be used to help the novies decide on the correct size.

Rowers will be issued rowing suits to borrow for the season to be worn for racing only. We do not have enough in stock at present but we have ordered more.
