Novice (First Year) and Competitive Juniors FAQ

Why don’t we go on the water during the first week of practice?
Because at CIR, safety always comes first! You need a solid knowledge and safety base before going on the water. In order to prepare you for lake time, the first few practices teach you the basics: safety precautions, the boat care routine, the rowing stroke, rowing terminology, and coxswain commands. You will also watch a required Rowing Safety DVD and practice the stroke on dock rowers.

What should I wear once we are on the water?
Spandex or athletic fit clothing works best! The snugger the clothing the better. Loose pants and shorts can get caught in the seat slides and loose tops can get caught on the oar handle. Bright colored clothing is also helpful as it allows the coaches to better see the rowers on the water. We row in all weather conditions except lightning and high wind, so be prepared with proper layers – NO COTTON!

What forms/paperwork is needed to start the competitive team?
You will receive all the required information in an e-mail once you register, but it is necessary for your athlete to complete the online USRowing Waiver, Float Test, and Athlete Code of Conduct.

What happens if I can’t make a practice?
Talk to your coach prior to any planned absences, and let the coach know through e-mail or text message if you are sick or have an emergency. Too many absences will result in removal from racing line-ups.
