The Freshmen Interest Meeting for those students that want to participate in our fall Learn-to-Row sessions will be Friday August 31st at 12:15 PM (early dismissal @ 12:09 PM) in room 301 for a brief 10-15 minutes. The coaches would just like to meet those interested in rowing and getting their contact information while also explaining a few fundamental details about the sport.
The Interest Meeting for parents of prospective freshmen rowers will be held Tuesday September 4th at 7 PM in the Bishop Ireton Cafeteria. The coaches and parents board would just like to meet any new parents, relate relevant information about the team, parent organization, and volunteer efforts, and answer and questions.
We look forward to meeting all of our new athletes and their parents.
The BICA Board Meeting for September (originally planned for Sept. 5th) has been moved to Wednesday August 29th @ 7 PM in the Bishop Ireton Cafeteria.
Our returning rowers and parents meeting will be held in the Bishop Ireton High School cafeteria on Tuesday, August 14th, at 7pm. Coach Eric and Board President Tom Padden will discuss the upcoming year (fall and spring rowing, and winter conditioning), and registration material and uniform order forms will be handed out. Additionally, in response to the numerous inquires last season, we will have a limited supply of Lands’ End spirit wear for purchase (we will accept checks and cash). Because we will only have a limited supply of items, we will also have order forms to place an additional Lands’ End spirit wear order.
Practices for ALL teams will be moved to the Atrium (at school) due to high winds on the river. We will begin promptly at 3:15 PM so make sure to be on time. We will finish around 5 PM.
Spring Mulch Delivery is this Sunday April 22nd at 8 AM in the lower parking lot of Bishop Ireton HS.
Please come prepared to lift and move heavy bags. Also, be aware of what the weather is predicted to be like.
See everyone there!
Practice, for all teams, on Tuesday April 3rd will be at Bishop Ireton in the Atrium from 3:15 to 5:30 PM. Please adjust your carpools accordingly.
Athletes & Parents;
As you may have heard Bishop Ireton is closed today due to a small fire in the building. Fortunately for us our boathouse is still in one piece.
Practice today for ALL teams is from 3 PM to 6 PM at ACBA (just like after school). This is a great opportunity for us to use our time wisely and efficiently – getting out every line up we intend to race on Saturday morning.
Athletes, please do your best to accomodate rides for everyone in your cars. It is imperative that all the rowers and coxswains attend today’s practice as we are preparing for our races and need each other in order to complete line ups.
All necessary Spring 2012 Registration forms are on our Forms Page.
Please complete the Registration Packet, Concussion Form, and 2012 USRowing Liability Waiver before March 3rd and return them to Coach Eric ASAP.
Varsity Athletes & Parents;
We have our design now for the Bishop Ireton Crew Jacket (made by Boathouse – picture on the order form). Please return the form and check to Coach Eric as soon as possible. More pressing is, if you plan on ordering a jacket, please email me your size by Friday, December 16th, at 4 PM to be included in the first order. After Friday I can not guarantee that your jacket will be delivered by the start of the Spring season.
Registration is now open to the schools that are invited to the 3rd Annual Bishop Ireton Erg Invite (on January 21st, 2012).
