Recreational Masters Rowers are not required to attend every practice each week, but are encouraged to make as many as their schedule allows.


All Masters team members must sign a waiver OR pass a swim test each year consisting of: Swim 50 meters, tread water for 10 minutes, put on a PFD (lifejacket) while in the water. This is for your safety. Date and location of swim test will be announced.
