The full schedule of all practices are easy to view. You can see any cancellations. It’s also very easy for anyone to add other events to the calendar such as parties!
In addition to seeing the schedule, you can indicate whether you will be attending an event. The coaches will be using this feature to know how many are coming to a practice, so it is very important that you indicate your attendance. If you do not, it will be assumed you are not attending. By knowing who and how many are coming in advance, the coaches can determine how many boats are needed and make the line up in advance. That means getting on the water quicker!
You will be sent an email reminder the day before a practice, so you can update your attendance directly from the email. You can also do it through the app or the website. If you know you are going to be away, or have other conflicts, indicate you won’t be available. Please do not go through in advance and indicate you will be attending every practice. No one’s going to believe that! Update a day or two in advance, right up to the afternoon of the practice.
If you have indicated you are not coming (or indicated nothing), you can still come to the practice. We all recognize that last minute things can change. But you may find yourself not on the lineup and may end up paddling in a spot not as desirable for you, such as Bruce Oakley in seat 10.
