COVID-19 Updates

ALL Rowers (parents/guardians) must complete the WRA COVID Participation Waiver and Sculling Protocol Agreement

We are relying on your cooperation and adherence to the protocols listed above and in the agreement to keep everyone at WRA healthy and safe! 

Please note the following Phase 2 regulations that must be followed to ensure a smooth and safe transition back onto the water:

1.      Currently only singles shells are available. If you reside in the same household as another member you may use a double.

2.      NEW AS OF 10/14/2020 – Double Bubble

3.      For the health and safety of everyone at the boathouse reservations for club equipment MUST be made on the WRA Boat ReservationCalendar. This will ensure that all rowers are able to plan appropriately and stagger their start times to avoid congestion at the boathouse.

4.      ALL Rowers (private boats included) must sign-in and out on the sculling logbook located on the bulletin board.

5.      Please respect the general guidelines of hand washing (sanitizing) and social distancing of six feet while in the boathouse and in the park. Make sure to thoroughly sanitize your hands upon entry and exit of the boathouse. Hand sanitizer can be found by both doors for the boathouse.

6.     Masks are mandatory for all rowers while inside the boathouse and walking through the park.

7.      Equipment must be disinfected before and after use. There are spray bottles with a diluted bleach solution as well as fresh water located in the boathouse for disinfecting and sanitizing equipment. At this time, it is the responsibility of the member using the equipment to ensure that the equipment has been disinfected. Please note that this process will take extra time so you will need to plan accordingly with your time.

·       Please spray the following touch points with diluted bleach solution:

Oar Handles , Oar Locks, Gunwales, Slings, Rolling rack touch points, door handles, etc.

8.      Water access and equipment use is for members only. Guest access is not allowed at this time.

9.      Club owned boat lights and stroke coaches will not be available during this time.

*Repeated failure to adhere to the guidelines listed above may result in loss of access. 

A quick look at what to expect next:

Phase 2: Small boat group rows involving fewer than 5 people outside your household and limited coaching support on the water. This phase would include supervised use for juniors.
