Club members in good standing may sign up to row using the YRC scheduling website called “The Scheduler” http://scheduler.yarmouth-rowing.org.
New members should contact Bob Checkoway for assistance in setting themselves up on The Scheduler the first time. The Crew Calendar, also available in the sidebar to the right, is also posted on The Scheduler (below the tide chart) so members can quickly see at a glance when the youth crews will be practicing, plan for upcoming regattas, etc.
When signing up for The scheduler, please choose an ID that others will recognize to make it easier to know who’s rowing where.
If sponsoring a guest rower, put your name in twice – once for you and once for your guest – and add “guest rower” in the “coach” box. Remember to click “update” to save your selections. Make sure your guest signs a waiver before rowing. (Blank waivers can also be found in the gray cabinet, in the logbook pouch. Leave the signed waiver in the pouch.)
When signing up for a row, a member should first try to fill out existing boats based on his/her preference and ability. If no slots are available, a member may initiate a new row – choosing a day, time and boat – and self selecting a description of the workout. The tabs include: Fitness, Competitive, Double, Single, Summary. Be sure to click on “update” to save your selections. Once a boat is full, the site will email all participants with a confirmation.
Note: The Scheduler will not allow you to add or cancel a row if it is within a 24 hour window of the row time.
Scullers are encouraged to add themselves to The Scheduler so other rowers can see when you are rowing and plan accordingly. We encourage small boats to row when others are out whenever possible both for safety and for assistance carrying boats up and down the ramp.
A contact list of experienced coxswains is posted on the gray cabinet at the boatyard. Texting junior coxswains is the best way to reach them. $4 per person is customary.
We do not have a team coach but many of our members are available to provide coaching/video services for your row. Contact one of the Co-Presidents for a list of available coaches. A coaching fee should be negotiated between the crew and the prospective coach. In addition to the coaching fee, an additional $5 gas fee (per session) is to be paid to the club for the use of a safety launch. To be in compliance with IRS regulations, please contact the club financial officer to arrange for the coaching fee invoices and payments to go through the club rather than paying the coach directly.
Non-member guest coaches are most welcome but must be sponsored by a member and vetted by a Board Member on the use of the launch, required safety gear, docking protocols and familiarity with the river. An experienced launch driver may be required.
