The rowing club isn’t exclusively for students – despite our name.
Every year we host an information meeting in March, where curious newcomers (“rabbits”) and migrates (rowers who have previously achieved the right to row in other rowing clubs and bring their certificate) can sign up for the spring instruction, which start at the beginning of April.
In 2019 the information meeting will be held on Thursday the 28th of March at 20:00-21:00. Please send an email to Jacob if you´re planning on attending (email@example.com), so we have an estimate on how many people will show up. There will be coffee and cake! 🙂 The location for this event is: Fiskerivej 7, 8000 Aarhus C.
Interested parties, who’ve attended the information meeting are first in line to get rowing instruction. Thereafter those who haven’t attended the information meeting will be offered instruction to the extend the rowing club’s capacity permits.
Instruction – start up
The instruction course is provided by unpaid members who’ve received special training enabling them to teach others how to row. We have planned two instruction/introduction days which are mandatory for new rowers:
Sunday the 7th of April
Saturday the 13th of April
You will need to attend on one of these days. We start at 10 o´clock in the morning, so that we have lots of time to do the instruction. Expect this to take all day. You´ll get a chance to meet the other “rabbits”, and get out in one (or more) of our rowing boats – so we´re sure that time will fly by quickly 🙂
Unfortunately we don´t have unlimited space on these introduction days, so you need to send Jacob (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email to let him know that you are attending.
After you have attended one of the introduction days, you are ready to come to our scheduled “instructions”. During Spring and early Summer we have fixed time slots for the instruction where you simply show up at Fiskerivej 7 at a set time.
The instruction days are:
We haven´t quite figured out exactly what time the instruction will be – but we´ll keep you posted. One instruction usually takes between 1,5 and up to 3 hours.
As a rabbit you’ll need to receive instruction 7 to 10 times before you can get your certificate. Apart from that you have to do a swim test of 300 meters and be able to put on a life jacket (at the indoor swimming pool). Hereafter you can row as much as you want, as long as you have a trained coxswain in the boat. Once you’ve been trained to be a K1-coxswain yourself, you can go rowing with all your new rowing mates from ASR.
We recommend that you (in the beginning at least) set time aside twice a week to go rowing, so that you don´t forget too much between instructions.
We hope that you’ll be happy rowing in ASR! Our advice is: Be active and happy, join one of the committees, come to the parties, plan trips and parties, and enjoy all your new friendships. All the good you bring to ASR, you get back ten-fold! It’s a guarantee!
