Sweep Masters Rowing Programs 2013
BIR offers several different sweep programs to accomodate a variety of work schedules, rowing goals, competition goals, and levels of rowing experience. See below for details.
If you are interested in a particular program, check first with its coordinator to make sure it's the right program for you; there may be times during preparation for a particular race when it's not appropriate to accomodate new rowers. Then use the Doodle scheduler to let the coach and coordinator(s) know when you'll be at practice.
RACING: The first two races have been selected - Doodle in here if you'd like to race!
SATURDAY ROWING: Doodle in here if you'd like to row. Saturday rowing is now 7:00 - 9:00.
Early morning rowing
If you are game for a rigorous early morning workout and genuinely interested in perfecting your technique to the racing or near-racing level, this program's for
you. Please Doodle in (or out) by 4 p.m. the day before a row.
Practice times: Monday, Wednesday and Friday - 4:45 a-6:15 a.m

This group focuses on improving rowing technique and conditioning, and training for competition. While most members are training for competition, the group includes both racers and non-racers. Members of this rowing group are experienced rowers expected to row a minimum of two times/week, with this group or in combination with another Masters rowing group. If you are not sure this is the correct rowing group for you, please contact Coach Molly (email@example.com).
Please Doodle in for the entire week ahead by 3 pm Monday. Make any necessary changes on Doodle by 4 pm the day before you'd like to row.
Practice times: Tuesday, Thursday

Mid-morning rowing, Novice/Intermediate
This group is for men and women who want to get a good workout and develop their skills as a sweep rower and coxswain. This will be the group for Novice rowers upon graduating from Learn to Row. It will also be an excellent group for those who haven't rowed for a year or more, those who want to focus on skill development, or those who plan to row no more than 1 or 2 days a week. Members of this group might enter some novice or low key competition. Please doodle in (or out) by 3:00 pm a day ahead.
Practice times: Monday, Wednesday, Friday* 9:00-10:45 a.m.
*We will add Friday rowing when there are 5 (o more) rowers who wish to regularly row on those days.
