We hope the recent glimpses of warm weather have made you excited for the upcoming MIT Rowing Club spring season! Our spring season will run for 8 weeks from April 3rd to May 26th.
If you plan to row or cox with MITRC this Spring, you can find more information and sign-up using this survey: https://goo.gl/forms/ZYVthZWI2quaa71J2
The deadline to complete the survey is Wednesday, March 22nd, but don't wait to get it done! New this season, there is a hard limit on the number of available signups. You can reserve your spot for the season by paying online as described in the survey, so be sure to reserve your spot now before the tickets sell out!
We'll have a mandatory meeting on Monday, April 3rd at 6am at the Pierce Boathouse where we'll give general information about the club and talk about some details of the upcoming Spring season.
Note about the learn-to-row (LTR) program: Unfortunately we are unable to offer a LTR program this spring, but we still encourage new rowers to fill out the survey to indicate interest in the summer or fall season.
MITRC is open to all MIT affiliates with an interest in complimenting their academic experience at the world's finest university with a dedication to the greatest sport on earth! During the fall, spring and summer seasons, we hold practice every weekday on the Charles River, rowing's most storied waterway. In the winter, we hold training sessions three times a week that are free and open to the entire MIT community.
MITRC offers Learn-to-Row novice programs for beginners during the fall, spring and summer seasons. Recreational rowers are welcome to participate as many (or as few) times a week as they like.
