February Vacation Week Trip
We are planning a trip for all BLS Rowers interested in attending a crew training trip in Tennessee during February vacation week. This is an optional training trip. (Please note that April vacation training in Boston is mandatory.)
Dates: February 18-24
Location: Oak Ridge, Tennessee
Who: All skill levels (Varsity and Novice)
Preliminary price per athlete: $2,000
Fly from Boston Logan to Knoxville, Tennessee on Sunday, February 18.
The team will stay in a hotel with parent chaperones (let Jessica or Ivette know if you are interested in chaperoning the trip).
Conor will drive the trailer to TN and will be there to coach the kids for the week.
They will have two training sessions everyday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
The team will eat together for all meals which will be provided.
The team will fly home on Saturday, February 24.
We are estimating the total cost of the trip at $2,000 per athlete. This is subject to change. We also hope to raise funds to offset the total cost and provide scholarships for anyone who needs it.
In order to continue the planning process, we need to know an approximate number of athletes that are interested in attending.
Please send an email to BLS-CREW-TRIP@blscrew.org by October 15 if your child is interested in joining the trip.
To secure your spot you will need to pay a $800 deposit by November 30.
For those that already paid the initial $500, please pay the $300 balance.
Financial Aid is available, please contact the Registrar if you would like to request aid. All requests are kept confidential.
Parent volunteers Jessica Fisher, Ivette Collazo, and Kate Shepherd will answer questions and outline the plan for the trip on Thursday, November 30, 2023 at 7pm via Zoom.
