Attendance Policy

Attendance is very important in Rowing.  In order to be our best, every rower and coxswain needs to attend every practice.  You will improve your technique and fitness.  This in turn will make our whole team faster!


The coaches expect you to be at each practice but we also understand that things do come up.  Please text in your WhatsApp Group by 4PM on Saturday prior to each week and let them know if you cannot make a practice and why.


If you become ill, please text in your WhatsApp Group as soon as you know you cannot make practice.  Rest up and take care of yourself!

Day of Cancellations/Late/No Show

These types of absences are frowned upon as every practice is planned beforehand assuming you will be there.  It is very disruptive to everyone if you do not show up.  Your boat will be waiting on you to go out.  Please be considerate.

Early Dismissals

Our practices occur at their stated time even when there is an early dismissal from schools.


We put SAT & ACT dates on our calendar for Saturdays that do not conflict with a race.

Please schedule your tests for these dates.  Thank you!

Good 2018/19 SAT Dates: Aug 25, Nov 3, June 1

Good 2018/19 ACT Dates: Sept 8, Oct 27, April 13, June 8, July 13


Attendance will be noted at each practice and will be a factor in making practice and race line-ups.  Athletes that routinely miss practice may be removed from our team and will not be invited back the following year.
