Winter Training Ends and Transitions Right into the Spring Season on Monday February 24.
This is the official start of spring season for all returning rowers and for all rowers who joined us over the winter if they are not participating in another sport. The season "officially starting" means practices are now mandatory, and unexcused absences starting that Monday will count against your attendance for the season. An important change to the practice schedule will be the change in time from two sessions (2:30 - 3:30 & 3:30 - 4:30) to one longer session (3 - 4:30).
Opens February 15. Click on Registration starting on February 15 through March 2.
There was a mandatory parent meeting on Tuesday, February 25 from 6 pm- 8pm in SHS Taft cafeteria. Please click here for a copy of the packet that was distributed so you are up to date on all of the latest information on scheduling and volunteer obligations: 2014 Spring Parent Packet
