Winter Junior Training – Basic Information
We will again have a 3 day and a 5 day program running through the winter months at Lyme-Old Lyme High School. If you know the basics of rowing and you are a student at any of the area high schools you may participate. If we get near our capacity of about 25 some priority may be given to LOLHS students but that is usually not a problem.
Practice starts about 2:45 in the high school commons area. We will be on ergometers, running, weight lifting, core and stretching exercises. We will end by 4:20 (frequently earlier) each day. The three day program can be any three days as long as it is agreed to in advance. Coaching will be by Paul Fuchs and for the month of December, Molly Hack.
The program will start December 1 and go through February 24. Workout days will follow the LOLHS schedule. Registration is HERE. (scroll down)
