Learn to Row!

As if the opportunity to see the bottom half of your teammate’s face was not exciting enough, we have even more good news for you. Learn to Row is back for 2021! Sign up now for one of our Learn to Sweep sessions or Learn to Scull. Please contact us if you have any questions and review our COVID guidelines to see how we’re staying safe this summer. We look forward to meeting you!

And…. we’re back.


Getting out of our houses and back on the water in team boats has us all jumping for joy. We’re not 100% out of the water yet (pun intended), so let’s please review the updated COVID safety protocols and continue the excellent work we have all done to keep everyone safe and healthy. Please continue to send Anne Diggs your COVID vaccination card photos. This is voluntary – but we’re currently at 65%. Thank you to the entire ACBA community (and science) for pulling us through! 

Please Sign Your US Rowing Waiver

US Rowing has a new waiver for 2021 that must be signed before your participation this year.  The updated waiver includes coverage of COVID risk.  You will not need to renew US Rowing membership to sign the waiver unless you were already due to renew.

To sign the new waiver, go to https://membership.usrowing.org, click on “Log In” under Individuals and log in using your member number and password.  Then on your profile page, click the blue button “Sign Agreement & Waiver” and follow the steps on screen.

Thankful.

 

How were these 2 (and 198 others) able to experience a glorious row this fall? We’re glad you asked. Capital was able to offer a thriving sculling program thanks in no small part to the overwhelming generosity of personal owners who lent their sculls to the cause.
