As many of you know, tomorrow will be the first day of Winter Training! While the Winter season might be the hardest season in rowing, it is when we build our success in the Spring. Not only that, but in this time of rebuilding for our club, it is essential we have your support. I am confident we can turn Norwalk into one of the strongest clubs in the Northeast, but it will take the dedication of our members and athletes to make it possible!
So if you have not signed up yet, it is not too late! Our wondrous tech guru, Elisabeth Stonehill has reworked our website to make it very easy to find the sign up page which you can find here. If you have any issues or questions, feel free to email me. We are always willing to work with our members to find the best program for them.
Practice will be located at the Norwalk Senior Center on 11 Allen Rd. Our club has used the facilities in the past and through our good relationship with the administration there has been granted access of the space at a very low cost. We will have access to ERGs as well as a gym space with free weights and machines. We have everything we need to emerge from the Winter faster than ever and ready to race in the Spring!
Finally, I would encourage everyone to reach out to friends, family, coworkers, classmates, and anyone else you may know and tell them about our programs. We will be having events each month where prospective rowers are welcome to come in, learn the basics, and see if rowing is the right sports for them. I am also happy to talk to anyone who is interested in our program, so please feel free to give out my contact information.
I look forward to a great Winter season and wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving this week!
