Sprint season is almost here…..

Thanks to all those who completed the sprint season survey, if you haven’t done it already please take 5mins to do it now (survey) as it will really help us to plan for upcoming events. Some more fun regattas are not far away!
Unfortunately looking at the responses we do not have enough interested people to attend the Hamilton regatta on the first weekend in December. Instead we will be launching the sprint season with club races at 10am on Sunday 7th December (squad training at 8am for those keen to get in some extra rowing), followed by some brunch, $5 a head. Please sign up as you would normally using mysportsplanner for both/either 8am and 10am events and if you are able to offer any help coordinating club races or brunch please let Justin know.
P.S. I know head racing is still at the forefront of most people’s minds and good luck to everyone over the next two weeks in both Melbourne Head and Head of the Yarra!

Sprint Season – Rowers Intention Survey

I know everyone is fully focused on the head racing season at the moment but with the great commitment and numbers of participants we are seeing down at the club everyday at the moment we want to ensure we carry on the momentum into the next part of the season. We have a great base of fitness and skill and forward planning for the next part of the season will only help the tigers grow stronger.
Would you believe it but he sprint season is only a few weeks away. You may recall completing a survey earlier this year for the head racing season. Well it’s now time to do the same for the sprint season.
Please take the time to help us to know your rowing goals.
Click here to take the survey now.
Thanks for your participation!

You gave us feedback and we’ve listened!

The message was clear following our planning day so we’ve been working with extended groups to get ready for the upcoming season.
As a club we have prioritised taking action to rejuvenate our squad structure. You can expect additional training flexibility and a united club training culture. We will have more crews on the water together, racing one another and pushing each other to succeed.
The goal is to unite members through training, to improve our skills on the water and have fun while doing it. Things are moving quickly. We plan to launch the new season as soon as possible once we have access to all our fleet and boathouse. Keep an eye on the blog for more information and make sure you come to the AGM on Saturday 26th July (10am at the clubhouse) to hear more about our plans and get involved.
So what’s next? Click here and tell us what your goals and expectations are for the coming season. Be quick we don’t want to miss you off the list. It may be cold outside at the moment and the thought of putting your feet in the Yarra may not fill you with joy but Winter is the ideal time to start to build fitness and plan for the Spring Head racing season which always looms onto the calendar very quickly at the start of a new season. For example there’s only 2 months until Salty and those rowers who want to be out in a quad competing at Essendon could be out training now if we know that you want to aim for that regatta. Also this year is special because Victoria is hosting the World Masters Games between the 9-12th October in Ballarat. Members aged 27 or over may like to compete in this competition as well and so it would be helpful to know numbers for planning for these events.
So what are you waiting for, complete the survey.

RRC season review survey

Very quick note to you all to say I wil be taking down the RRC season review survey tomorrow and analysing the results before this Saturday’s planning day.
