              FALL 2007 SCULLING CAMP FOR KIDS
Fall on Fish Creek is a wonderful time to row; however, there are a few things to be aware of
that are applicable to rowing in September and October. The following is general information on
the program. As always, should you have any questions, please feel free to call Anne
Schwartzman, 587-6697, weekdays from 10 AM – 5 PM.

    1. All participants should be competent swimmers without assistance. If they have not
       already done so, all participants will be required to successfully pass a “swim test”
       consisting of treading water for 15 minutes and putting on a life jacket (PFD) while
       doing so.
    2. There may be much more rowing traffic on the water. All scullers must possess good
       navigation skills and feel comfortable with their ability to stay “on pattern”. Both the
       SRA Juniors Program and Skidmore College rowing teams may have shells on the water
       during these same times.
    3. Due to increased rowing shell traffic we will limit the number of scullers eligible for this
       program to ten (10) per session. Scullers will be eligible on a first come-first served
       All sessions will be run from the Saratoga Rowing Association Community Boathouse
       located at 543 Union Avenue (next to Boatworks Marina), Saratoga Springs, NY.
       Punctuality is important. All shells will start launching by 7:35 AM and 9:20 AM,
       respectively, each Sunday morning session.
    4. Should demand exceed availability we will make every attempt to expand the program as
       our resources allow.
    5. All sessions will run rain or shine. Should we deem the water/weather conditions unsafe,
       we will cancel or suspend all on-water activities. There are no refunds for cancelled or
       suspended sessions. No enrollments will be pro-rated.
    6. Rowing in the September and October can present a vast array of temperatures and
       weather conditions. Please dress appropriately – layer if necessary during colder
       weather. Wear pogies (rowing gloves) if you are prone to cold hands (pogies are
       available for sale on-line at or by calling 584-7844).
       Baggy or bulky clothes should be avoided. Wool socks are advisable in colder weather
       as they offer warmth even if wet. Always carry plenty of drinking water. We
       recommend caps or hats for both warmth (when appropriate) and sun protection.
       Sunscreen should be applied prior to arrival. If you wear eyeglasses please use a
       “croakie”. Wear socks and sneakers – some shells require socks only, others require both
       socks and sneakers. Label all items with the rower’s last name.
    7. Athletic tape will not be provided – if you are prone to blisters please bring your own
       athletic tape. It is best to “tape up” prior to arrival.

Receipt of your permission form, medical auth/ waiver, (not needed again if you
participated this spring or summer with SRA) and full payment must be received
to confirm a spot. US Mail Postmark or hand delivery date will determine date
Hope to see you on the water this fall!
