Hello AB Rowers and Families,
Although we are bracing for our third Nor’easter in two weeks, we are also nearing the end of Punxatawney Phil’s grim February forecast and spring is soon to be upon us (fingers crossed here people). That means warmer temperatures, blue skies, blooming flowers, Red Sox baseball and, most importantly, rowing on water and not indoors.
So it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Spring 2018 Season for Arlington-Belmont Crew!
Spring season is officially slated to begin on March 19th. First race for varsity is on April 7th and first race for Novice is April 14th. Practice times are subject to change by coaches, but generally speaking, varsity will meet Mon-Fri 3:30-6 and Novice Mon-Fri 4-6:30. Saturday’s varsity will have the pond from 8:30-11 and novice will be subject to their caches schedules.
Please take a moment to visit the AB website and read and complete the online registration. Registration link is here.
No athlete will be allowed to participate until registration is complete including completing the code of conduct, safe sport policy and release form for the town Arlington (all on the registration page).
- Varsity $1,000.00
- Novice $ 950.00
Fees include: $45.00 US Rowing Championship Membership, all regatta registration fees and travel and lodging for Varsity to Saratoga Invitational.
Full payment is due upon registration. Refunds, less a $50 registration fee, are available until March 30, 2018 through the Registrar.
We do not want the price to prohibit any rowers from participating. Please do not hesitate to ask for a full or partial scholarship for the season. Confidential Scholarship Request: firstname.lastname@example.org
The spring racing schedule can be found on the AB Crew homage as well each teams respective google doc.
