While we did run the session today , there were understandably not many takers. Wednesday is parents evening so I think it would be wise to cancel this session. Given the disruption in general to year 8 and implications for coaches in driving the bus down, I plan to cancel thursdays session as well I am afraid.
On the upside, it is the plan to run Monday, Wednesday and Thursday session throughout the summer holidays. There may be some sessions cancelled for certain reasons but the aim is to give the year 8 rowers enough opportunity to develop their skills in line with year 8s in the past. There will be no extra charge for this and we do not usually row through this holiday, but given many will be around it is purely to give them an opportunity to develop confidence in small boats and have fun on the water.
I am very excited by the number of younger years comimg into the club and want to encourage them to take up this opportunity. We will try to be as flexible as possible about shifting sessions and if we are not fully booked , rowers can take on extra sesssions if the would like to.
Throughout this summer we will have coaches looking to teach our novices, and I hope this will be fun and instructive to the rowers.
