For Athletes

Covid Protocols

These are the protocols we have adopted to keep everyone safe.

Vaccination – All coaches and athletes must be fully vaccinated to participate.

Masks – Masks are required when indoors (Erg Room) at all times. Masks are optional outside and on the water.

Disinfecting – We will continue to disinfect the oar grips and erg handles after each row.

Coxswains – Are strongly encouraged to place a finger cot (AB will supply) over the microphone. Please dispose of properly after practice. Coxswains in stern coxed boats are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.

Practices

Normal Water Practice Location: Spypond Boat Ramp

Current Water Practice Location: Medford Boat Club (public entrance)

Land Practice Location: 334 Pleasant Street, Belmont, MA, USA

Note: Athletes should arrive 10 minutes before practice.

What to Wear

Every rower must bring a water bottle and water shoes to each practice.

Varsity rowers will wear tight fitting spandex uni-suits (unis) to regattas and novices race in compression shorts (tight fitting spandex shorts) and a tech-shirt (looser athletic t-shirt). These can be adjusted for the weather with leggings and compression shirts (tight fitting long-sleeve shirts) or other tight fitting weather appropriate attire.

At practice rowers are expected to wear tight fitting shorts, leggings, or pants with their choice of top (t-shirt, tank top, etc. all work).

At the start of each season an official AB online store will open where rowers can purchase their uniforms with the AB logo on them.
