CURRENT CONDITIONS
FOR ROWING
As of August, 2021

Currently, PRC is open to adult members and youth athletes rowing in club and private boats of all sizes. 


 

Masks

Masks required for staff and all athletes in the offices, boat bays, dock and “apron” effective Monday August 9th, 2021.

 

Vaccinations

Beginning September 1, the boathouse will require vaccination for entry or participation in any fashion, including independent rowing. This policy applies to athletes, staff and guests of all ages. 

 

While the policy regarding vaccines will not go into effect until September 1st to allow time for paperwork to be submitted, if you are currently unvaccinated please consider remaining away from the Pocock Rowing Center in the interim out of concern for your health and the health of the PRC community.  

Information on getting vaccinated is here.

 

We offer two ways to record your vaccination status with the PRC.  You can submit a signed waiver / attestation form or provide a copy of your vaccine card. Either of those documents can be returned to the office via paper copy in the mailbox in the boat bay or emailed to the office.  Many of you have already submitted this documentation to the office or youth coaching staff.  You do not need to resubmit. 

 

If you require a medical exemption to the vaccination requirement, please contact Padraic McGovern

 

Indoor Training  
The Zesbaugh Fitness Center will remain closed until further notice. Last month, we recalled our loaned fitness equipment for service and redistribution.  In mid-August, will again loan ergometers to families and members to facilitate land training at home.
 

Erging and Lifting in and around the Boat Bays
This practice will be suspended effective Monday, August 9th, 2021.  

We will continue to row in team boats without further restriction, however, we remain vigilant for updated information on outdoor spread of COVID through athletic activities. We may “pod up” athletes (youth or adult) to reduce the number of close contacts.  

 

We ask that all families and members continue to mitigate their own personal risks:

  • Monitor your own health daily.

  • Know the symptoms of COVID and the Delta Variant.  

  • Do not come to the boathouse if you are sick.

  • If you have traveled to an area with a high spread of COVID, please follow CDC recommendations about testing and quarantining.

In order to row, you must sign up for a reservation:

  1. Reserve a boat.  (Under "Reservations" on iCrew, applies to both club and private boats)

  2. If you're paying for coaching, you may also select your session from iCrew.

  3. Do not expect to row without a reservation and do not take non-reserved boats. 

Tips for reservations and reporting damages:

  • Update the reservation for the amount of time on the water. The reservation default is 1.75 hours. If you are going out for shorter please adjust manually or you may extend to the maximum allowed 2 hours. 

  • The day's reservations end at 8. If you plan on going out past 8 and put a time past 8 no reservations will come up. Adjust the reservation to end at 8 and boats will appear. 

  • Be sure to specify AM or PM on reservation.

  • Here's how to report equipment damage in iCrew:

    • Please log damage immediately to minimize downtime on equipment.

    • Damages can be logged by either athletes or coaches.

    • Go to "New Repair Request" to add a work-order.

    • If the shell is un-rowable, check the "major damage" button. (This removes it from the reservation list.)
