Athletes may choose any or all practices during the week. Mondays and Wednesdays emphasize sculling; Tuesdays and Thursdays emphasize sweep rowing; and Saturdays are a mixture of both disciplines.

Practices are held rain or shine at the CBRC boathouse. Weekday access to the park is through the rear gate along N. Thorne Lane. Weekend access is usually through the main gate to the park.

Please arrive on time and ready to row. We try to have boats back to the docks by 6:50 am and most athletes depart by 7:05 am.

On weekdays, please bring a set of indoor athletic wear in case of bad weather. Include a pair of closed heel athletic shoes for use on the rowing machines.

Locker room and shower facilities are available for those participants needing to head directly from practice to work. Please consult with one of the coaches regarding the proper use of the facilities and lock-up of the boathouse.
