Winter conditioning will start on Tuesday, December 7 and take place through the end of February 2011 (excluding 12/23-12/31). Sessions will be held from 3 to 5 PM every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) on the corner of Montrose Road and East Jefferson Street in Rockville. Please see the specifics in the draft conditioning plan on the “Training” link on the navigation bar (with the drop-down menu for winter training).
The winter conditioning program is mandatory for continuing rowers. The only exception we can make is for students who participate in a winter sport that would make it impossible to attend all Crew practices. If your student is on a winter team, please let us know. We may grant you an exemption, though your student will still need to attend at least one practice per week for erg training. This is important, since erging will help develop rowing muscles and minimize injury in spring.
