The Novice Program supports rowers who are new to crew or returning after a long hiatus. Most rowers will spend 7-9 months with this group. Novice members may race, if they choose, with the coaches’ permission; USRowing allows rowers to compete in the masters novice category for two years, which begins with the date of the rower’s first race.
- Three practices/week: $360/per quarter, or $120/month
- Annual equipment fee: $100, due August 1
Dues cover just about everything you’ll do at the boathouse, from the equipment to the dedicated coaching — think of it as roughly $10 per two-hour practice. (Compare that cost to a gym and/or personal trainer!) Dues do not cover regatta costs.
