Then they licked it off. (They may need to clean the boat before they go out today.)

  • Fall 2014 Rowing – From Coach Bill Randall Although there are other fall rowing programs, the TJ Crew rowers are recommended to register with Resilient Rowing Club (RRC).  Similar to last fall, RRC will have a competitive and a developmental program.  Acceptance into the competitive program will be based on 4K score, fitness, technical aptitude, and boat moving ability.  To register with RRC, go to www.roninregistration.com/rowing/info.asp?GroupID=174516&p=default&pt=rowing&InfoType=Register   Coach Bill recommends TJ rowers to engage in a fall sport (not necessarily rowing) in preparation for the TJ Crew winter conditioning and spring 2015 season.
