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.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY ROWING: Doodle in here if you'd like to row - 7:00 - 9:00 AM.
