Hello, NRRA Friends and Teammates.
Earth Day is the perfect day to announce reviving the NRRA practice of a spring river clean-up.
What better way to demonstrate our long tradition of community service than cleaning up the river we row?
Date: Saturday, May 11, 2019
Time: 8:30-11:00 am (low tide is approx. 11:40)
Wear: Work clothes, heavy gloves, waders, boots, etc.
Bring: Rakes, shovels, any tool useful for picking through silt, grasses, etc.
Where: NRRA site—and beyond
Who: All athletes (youth and masters), friends, family, people looking for some community service credits.
We will supply trash bags, snacks after the clean-up, and NRRA water bottles* for those who need one.
For questions or for more information, please use our contact us form
See you on May 11,
Laura & Phil
*Please note: NRRA bans single-use water bottles on site. Only reusable bottles are permitted.
The weather is warm, yet TOO wet to have a constructive practice.
We have decided to relocate the Learn-to-Row sessions to our indoor Winter Workout facility for today:
We will have fun and learn more on both our indoor Rowers and body exercise workouts.
See them there!

Dear Athletes, given the outlook for heavy rain and high winds and the holiday for many today, we have decide to cancel Development team practice today. Please take the opportunity to do homework, help around the house and do 100 sit-ups and push-ups on your own.
Train Hard, Row Fast,

Mother Nature seems to have not caught onto this idea of "Spring".
Due to snow at the site, and some coaches stuck in other locations, we have the following plan:
All Racing Team Members are to report to the Norwalk Senior Center at 3:45. Pick up at 5:45.
Address: 11 Allen Road.
Dev Team: This was to be our first day of the Spring season, but we will need to cancel today. Things pick up as normal tomorrow.
You have seen those rowers in the harbor and thinking of trying it yourself. You are a rower and are dying to have your friends try it out too.

Each of our programs are 4 weeks, 2 times per week – Tuesdays and Thursdays – 8 sessions in all.

In April, since it is still a bit chilly and dark in the early mornings and evenings, we are offering a Learn-to-Row at 8:30 am – 10:00 am.
In May, we offer a 6 am- 7:30 am class (we have showers so you have plenty of time to get to work!) as well as an evening class 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm for those who like to enjoy the water after work.
