A coach will go out with each boat. At most it is two boats per coach, which is in conjunction with the rules of the PSRA.

We ask that all parents confirm with the coach that the child can swim in the case of an emergency.

Shells are very stable and rarely, if ever, flip. But in the case of an emergency...all safety procedures will be gone over on day one.

Student should wear clothes in which they can workout and run. Sunscreen and sunglasses are also recommended.

Inclement Weather

In cases of inclement weather or if the float rate of the river is too fast for novice rowers, practice will be held at La Salle on the Erg machines.

Since no travel time to and from the river is needed, practice will end at 2:15 pm if you would like to pick up your son or daughter early. However, rowers will be supervised until the normal ending time of 4:15 pm.
