Summer Rowing League Half Session 

Half Session (7-8 weeks)

Program Description

Novice rowers are given the option of signing up for the full Summer Rowing League season (15 weeks) or choosing to participate in a half-session (7 or 8 weeks). The program is intended for new rowers who may not be able or comfortable with committing to a full SRL season. All half-session SRL rowers receive an SRL T-shirt. Enrollment is limited and based on overall SRL capacity.

Novice crews: The first week will be off the water and include an in depth review of both equipment and the boathouse with a longer erg session to review technique and training.

Novice boats will be provided coxswains for the first three (3) weeks of practice of the SRL season.  After that, Novice teams will be required to cox themselves. Teams may  work with SRL Administration to secure a dedicated cox.  Payment of the cox is the responsibility of the team.

NOTE REGARDING FALL ROWING LEAGUE ELIBILITY: Due to a reduction in available coaches and challenges posed by early nightfall, it is not feasible to provide safe and effective coaching for rowers with less than one full summer of rowing in Fall Rowing League. Therefore, members of one but not both half sessions for SRL will not meet the pre-requisite for Fall Rowing League.
