Since we share the rowing equipment, boathouse, dock and safety launches with two other high schools and the City rowing club, we will not be on the water every day.  Currently Bothell High gets to use the rowing shells on Tuesday, Thursday, every other Friday and one of the weekend days.  Probably Sunday morning at 8. On Monday Wednesday and every other Friday, we will be at BHS for practice.  In the first week of March I do NOT expect to get to the boathouse AT ALL.  Instead we will be at the school teaching all of the new rowers the basics of the stroke.

Land practices may include rowing on a stationary machine, running, weight lifting, yoga, step aerobics or other activities. Normal workout gear and running shoes are the expected outfit.  Layers are always a good idea as we often split time between indoors and outdoors during a practice. Athletes should expect to run every day. 

Shorts should be worn.  Shorts should be tight fitting.  Loose basketball, soccer or running shorts WILL get caught in the mechanisms of the rolling seat and will not work. Biking or rowing shorts are a must. 

A waterproof upper body shell is best for water days. Gore-tex is the best. Jackets need to be loose to accommodate stretching of the upper body and arms. 

Socks, spare socks, clothes that can get wet and dirty, shoes that can get wet, a crummy old towel are also all good items to bring to water workouts.

  You will be notified if practices change (weather, etc) via Final Forms.
