STA Spring Break

Wednesday-Sunday, March 28 – April 8  |  Hollywood Rowing Club, Hollywood

No, this is not a race.  But, it is a very important period in our training as we get close to States.  Please ensure you are home to attend practices.  We can be so much better when line ups are on the water rowing together.  When even one girl is missing from a line up, the entire boat is put at a disadvantage and race results will suffer.  Please try to take vacations during our breaks in November and December or after our season is over in May, June, July and August.  Thank you!
