There are two main areas where we need your help in the rowing fleet; skills development and maintenance.
Rowing lessons always go better when our instructor has help. If you are a confident rower and comfortable with club practices, please volunteer to help with beginner lessons. You will provide 1:1 coaching for launching, landing and rigging, and some on-the-water tips as your skills permit. Two lessons = your volunteer hours for the year; painless!
We also need experienced rowers for Thursday night group rowing; new rowers are often much more comfortable when someone with experience is there to look over their shoulder. You will provide general coaching for launching, landing and rigging, and some on-the-water tips as your skills permit.
Our ideal is to have one individual responsible for the well-being of each boat. They do not necessarily
need the skills to repair it, as long as they inspect it regularly, keep it clean, and report/flag any damage promptly.
Those with mechanical skills or fiberglass repair skills are need to help repair the damage as it arises; to the boats, the accessories and the facility (racks, etc). Repair work could include sourcing, purchasing, ordering and receiving parts, installation, delivery/pickup for external services, etc.
Please contact the fleet director with your ideas and preferences. If you are ready to do some maintenance work, here is our backlog:
