It’s February in New England. It’s cold, it’s dreary, and we’re all feeling winter’s cold icy clutch. Despite poor weather conditions, rowers are already deep into the winter training session preparing to hit the water in the spring ready to row.
This year we have 12 new rowers and 20 experienced rowers, most of who represent the FVRA men’s and women’s racing teams.
“We have a great group of new rowers of all ages and backgrounds,” says Katie Ouellette, FVRA President and coach for the beginner rowing group. “It’s amazing to see each of them gain more confidence in their stroke just during one session. Everyone has grown so much and I’m very excited to get them out on the water!”
The Trinity sessions include erging and then tanks followed by a group yoga stretch. After two Sunday practice cancellations due to inclement weather, there are only three remaining sessions at Trinity. The group is likely to stay with Wednesday training at Power10 in Avon until it’s safe to return to the water for the season.
There is still room for those who would like to join in on a session at Trinity or Power10 . Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
