2020 Youth Summer II Outside Erging & LTS*
8/1/2020 - 8/28/2020

Welcome to another session of Youth Erg Workouts- Outside & Together (6ft apart)!  

We have a great July session and are ready to roll into a second outdoor session for the month of August.  This session we have changed the times a bit so we can run two morning classes each day,  M&W or T&TH, plus a M&W late afternoon session, and for pre-qualified (see below) experienced youth rowers, a Friday Learn to Scull session.   Once again the program will be held outdoors in front of the boathouse.  

Classes will be held rain or shine!  Some days can be hot/humid and please let your rower know to bring  a mask, plenty of water (reusable bottle), sunblock, a hat and light exercise clothes.  We will have quick breaks to hydrate but each rower should be aware of how they feel and take a break when their body needs it too.  We also gave Coach John a spray bottle full of water so he can spray the kids on the back of the neck as needed.  There is also a hose (and an ocean) nearby if any of them want to wet their shirt, hat, or bandana for the neck before, during and after class!
  On rainy days we will hold land based instruction...ranging from learning about sculling to how to to use compass.  If the rain is light we will still have class outside but in the event of extreme conditions we will social distance in the boathouse as needed.

This summer outdoor session will run from Monday August 3rd to Friday August 28th.  Classes will be 2x a week for one hour each, and class size will be limited to 9 rowers and 1 instructor

Qualified rowers MUST have: 
  • A year (on the water, indoor, erging)  with CMI
  • Participated in a racing season (FALL registration)
  • Coach John's approval
  • Participating in a Session II outdoor erging class
  • Bring their own PDF

If your youth is interested and available on Friday mornings but you need to double check that they have met the participation requirements please reach out to me.  If you are unsure if you have Coach John's approval to participate please contact him at liffmann00@comcast.net.

We anticipate you will understand that we take on-the-water and COVID-19 safety seriously. We are being cautious as we introduce single sculling to our adults and now hopefully to our youth.  Single shells in Cohasset harbor and waters require much more skill, independence, and maturity than our almost unsinkable and coxed coastal 4s.
We hope you will join us as we aim to keep you motivated, active, and engaged with each other and CMI!
Location: Outside Boathouse
