2nd OCTOBER 2019
HRC Rowing Development Training Squad
Message to all adult members about competing for HRC in upcoming regattas.
With daylight savings beginning this Sunday, and the warmer weather, it’s time to get rowing. There are two regattas in October that HRC is attending and we want to see solid HRC participation ; <Bendigo on October 19th>, and the <Head of the Goulburn on 26th October>. RV regattas have entries across a wide range of categories, ages and ability so there’s opportunity for all to be involved.
In a bid to encourage members to pop on some HRC colours and to have a go at racing, we are trialling a series of rowing development training squad sessions over the coming two weeks. The format is that all club members interested in competing in up-coming regattas are invited to attend at least one session per week where we will pull together crews from those who turn up.
Rowing development committee members and Luciano as our Development Coach will be in attendance to put you together in assorted crews, provide some coaching oversight, assess possible crew combinations with the ultimate aim of getting you all involved in attending some regattas. I promise no ergos, just on water training sessions within an adult rowing squad.
To accommodate both morning & evening preferences for rowing, we will provide three session times over the next two weeks. You can come to as many as you like, but at least come to one!
Wednesday 5.45 am – 7.45 am (9th + 18th October),
Thursday 5.45 pm – 7.45 pm (10th + 17th October),
Sunday 7.00 am – 9.00 am (13th + 20th October).
The club is paying for Luciano’s oversight as Rowing Development coach with 6 hours a week of his time to facilitate these sessions. Captain and Vice Captain will also get involved in coaching, coxing or whatever is needed, to get our Hawthorn members competition ready.
Finally if you need some rowing gear to look the part just go to the <online shop> .
See you on the water,
