Tryouts are an evaluation of physical fitness and not necessarily rowing skill. Anyone interested in learning how to train for tryouts is invited to Contact Coach Mark Lewis Here to arrange a time to learn the basics.
*******We apologize for problems some people had sending the tryout form, all rowers may come to either Monday or Tuesday's tryout even if they did not fill out a signup form. The Form is now working. Just remember to bring you tryout waiver!
