Please block off the entire day as all athletes are required to be there from start to finish of each regatta.  Working together on regatta day is an important goal SJRC works to promote with the athletes.  

If there is a scheduling issue with a regatta the coaching staff needs to know as far in advance as possible.


The Dev Team is primarily for Middle School athletes, but also for High School athletes who need additional focus before joining the racing team.
