JRC Juniors Notes

The JRC Juniors Youth Crew started off the fall 2002 season with some surprises. New (and More) Coaches, New Rowers and A lot of Enthusiasm. Coaches Beth Marten, Risa Petty and Barbara Sanchez-Salazar are coaching both novice and experienced men and women. The team is open to any high school athlete in the First Coast. Recruits are always welcome. Contact Barbara at 398-6171 for info.
The team will have its first race of the season at the First Coast Headrace. With only three returning/experienced oarspersons, this will be an exciting race for the group as the make their way thru not only the headrace course but their own "first race" experience. Details on the team's success at the FCHR will be in the November newsletter.

X-MAS Idea

Having trouble finding the perfect gift for a spouse, co-worker, family member or boss??? Why not contact your club and arrange for a learn to row lesson or a six month membership? Who knows, at a minimum the recipient will have a small understanding of why you do this rowing thing!
