Early Morning Captain Practices – Not mandatory but suggested

  • MondayWednesday and Friday mornings - 5:45am to 6:30am.
  • Meet at the High School weight room.  

Coach Boris will confirm the morning practice after looking at the weather. He will do so around 9pm the night before. Only those athletes that are sleeping 8 or 9 hours will be allowed to run. If parents believe that their rowers have not slept enough, rowers will not be allowed to go to early practice. 
Going to the early morning practice without enough rest will have a negative result.



The Easter break schedule will be as follows for mandatory practice. The only day off will be Easter Sunday. 

  • Thursday March 29 - times/ location TBD.  
  • Friday March 30 - times/location TBD
  • Saturday March 31 - times/location TBD
  • Sunday April 1 - no practice. 

As soon as the spring schedule is finalized, the times and location for training will be updated. Practices will be held at PRAA or the High School. 

This will be last weekend of training before we begin our spring racing season with our first regatta on Sunday, April 8 in Philadelphia. Please be aware that only excused absences such as illness or family emergency or those listed in rower contract will be accepted.
