Anonymous asked: hi i'll be starting crew training and crew for the first time this year starting in the winter. I'm pretty nervous and was wondering if you had any tips?
hmm basically all you really can do as a novice would be to pay attention to what the coaches and any varsity rowers teach you since they’re speaking from experience. Come willing and ready to learn and work hard since rowing is a sport where you are always learning new things and you are always going to work hard if you want to do well. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you have any, and be open to constructive criticism. And last but not least make new friends! talk to other novice and talk to the varsity rowers, get to know your new teammates and they will welcome any questions or concerns you may have in the future!
