All rowers will need a team jersey or unisuit. We run a reduced-rate group order through JL Racing at the beginning of each season, so watch for an email with ordering information. The GLSCC office also has some shirts, hats, etc. for sale.
[In an emergency, one-off orders for GLC uniforms can be made directly from JL Racing any time by calling them @ 800-831-3305, but please note that one-off orders have a higher price point and a longer turn-around than group orders]
Unless your teen is able to drive, you will need to arrange transportation to and from Green Lake. Metro Transit routes 16, 26, 48, and 358 serve the Green Lake area. Since practices are every weekday and time on the water is limited, make every effort to get your rower to crew on time. Note: half of each practice involves a land-based workout, and half is on the water. Typically, the boys are working out on land while the girls are on the water, and vice versa.
The coaches expect every rower to participate every day. If an absence is unavoidable, he or she must call the office by 3:00 p.m. and tell his or her coach that they will be absent. However, multiple absences will hurt the athlete’s chances for advancement.
Rowing continues through midwinter break (in February) and spring breaks (in March/April). Your rower’s success in crew depends to a significant extent on attendance. Please keep this in mind when making vacation plans. Coaches will encourage your family to avoid taking vacations during these school break times.
