Practice is after school, Monday through Friday, 3:45 - 6:15, and Saturday mornings 7:30 - 10:00am (varsity teams). We have a fall rowing season, winter indoor training season, spring rowing season, plus options to row during the summer months. During the fall and spring seasons we are "on the water", rowing out of the Charlie S. Brown Water Sports Center, with a focus on boat skills and speed, and the team travels to regattas around the Northwest. Winter season is dryland practice at Palisades Elementary School with a focus is on strength training and conditioning.
Rowers new to the sport are considered novice for their first year and then advance to varsity the following year. Through a partnership with the local high schools, varsity athletes have an opportunity to "letter" just as they would in a traditional sport through their school.
Indoor Training, $365 During the winter season LOCR offers indoor winter training after school for new and experienced athletes looking to participate in team rowing during the spring. Practices are held at Palisades Elementary School. No practice held on federal holidays. No practice over school winter break.
