LEARN TO COX AT MITRC!
MITRC always welcomes new coxswains, and we want to make sure that those who are interested have the chance to learn how to cox well. This year, we are instituting a more formal sequence of training events to take advantage of the resources we already have and to provide supervised hands-on learning opportunities. If you're interested in learning to cox (or cox better), just follow these steps:

SUMMER ERGING SCHEDULE
Now that MITRC's summer season is well underway, it's time to step up our training and get in shape for racing. With this in mind, we are now having our semi-official erging sessions three days a week: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 6 p.m. on the third floor of the Zesiger Center (at the MAC court).
Each session focuses on a different aspect of training, including anaerobic threshold (with varying stroke rates and lengths), endurance (long and steady row), and fast pieces to match the racing requirements and compliment the pieces done on the water.
Feel free to join us if you are interested in some additional off-the-water workouts. As always, MITRC's land-training sessions are free (no membership dues required) and open to the entire MIT community.
MITRC HAPPY HOURS ARE BACK!
MITRC's weekly happy hours are back for the summer season! Join us each week as we take time to socialize (and build team spirit!) off the water. The date/time/place of the happy hour changes from week to week, so check MITRC's Facebook page for details and keep an eye out for the weekly email.
