I hope you are enjoying the final days of summer. One week from today is our first day of school. I wanted to reach out to you about Boys & Girls Rowing since all of you expressed interest at the Freshman Festival in May. Please forward this e-mail to your friends because the more the merrier.
Fall Season Practice: The first day of practice is Tuesday September 6th. Practice will be held at the Wyandotte Boat Club (1 Pine ST Wyandotte, MI) on Tuesday & Thursday 4:30-6:30pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 8-10am. Fall season ends the first week in November.
Physicals: You need to have a sports physical completed to be on the team. Physicals are good for the entire school year. I’ve attached the link to the MHSAA Physical form. Hard copies are also available in the High School Main office. MHSAA Physical Form Your doctor or almost any clinic can conduct a Sports Physical. Earlier this month I got a coupon in the mail from Woodhaven Urgent Care advertising $15 Sports Physicals.
Regattas: Rowing is a Varsity sport in the Spring Season. In the spring we race every weekend from mid-April until the first weekend in June. In the fall we gauge your interest in if you want to race, how often you want to race, and where you want to race. Three years ago we raced in Nashville, often we race in Toledo and Grand Rapids.
Coach Moe, Coach Ian, Coach Mark, and I are excited for the season and we look forward to meeting you. If you have any questions, stop by my classroom (Room 105). You can also find me in the pool after school because I’m also the swim coach.
Enjoy Link Crew on Wednesday,
