Boat Flip Today @ Chinn Aquatic Center

Just a reminder that the mandatory boat flip safety exercise is this afternoon beginning at 5:30pm at Chinn Park Rec Center, 13025 Chinn Park Dr, Woodbridge, VA 22192. Rower are to report and sign in prior to 5:30pm. Rowers who still need to complete a swim test should make arrangements to take the test at 4:30pm today at the Chinn Center. You can contact them directly to make this arrangement.


Rowers are to wear practice clothing (what they would wear when on the water in a crew shell).  Bring a towel and change of clothing for afterwards.  Rowers will go through the boat flip exercise and then do a swim assessment in the pool.  We will need parent volunteers to assist as timers, life jacket tossers and swim assessors.  You can coordinate with Coach Metzler at the Chinn Center for these positions.


We will need a few rowers to meet at the boathouse today at 3:30 to assist with loading the shell and moving equipment at the boathouse.  I have 3 people so far.  We could use one or two more varsity members to assist.


Don’t forget Forest Park Spirit Night at Chipotle near the Chinn Center. You can print out flyer below or show the flyer on your phone prior to paying so your order counts. Head over and grab something to go while your rower is getting dunked, or have a bite afterwards with your teammates!

See everyone this afternoon.
