Captains Corner - February 2013

posted Feb 25, 2013, 6:29 PM by TJ Crew Webmaster

The team finished out the month of January with some hard final Winter Training workouts in preparation for Mid-Atlantic Erg Sprints on February 2nd. We had some positive results on both the men’s and women’s teams which bodes well for success on the water this year. We also had a successful Ergathon on Valentine’s Day, raising a great deal of money for the team.

Now, with the winter over and the river thawed, we are finally back out in boats. The first couple practices are being spent teaching the novices how to row for the first time. After this introductory week, boats will begin splitting off and rowers will compete for the spots they worked for in the winter. Our first race is quickly approaching (about a month), so each boat will need to get its own rhythm fast in order to do well.

We know every team has come so far this winter and we are pumped for some friendly but fierce competition throughout the spring season.
