If you have your own you can use it!.

Bring at least one bottle of water.
We hope that you choose to race. But we have many people on our team who choose to simply join us for practices.
Basically, we just need to know your intentions for the season.
Parking fees, potluck costs and occasionally travel costs. But we usually know ahead of time so teammates can plan for any extra expenses.
We have many people on our team who work shift work.
What we require is... a commitment at least 24 hours in advance. Ideally, a month long commitment is perfect.
Teammates re always able to check in on practice day to see if there is room.
--commitment means etransfer sent-
Teammates will sign up to which race events they would like to participate in.
FIRM COMMITMENTS ARE NECESSARY HERE!
Once you sign up (via email or text) to an event you must attend four practices prior to that event.
(there are some exceptions made at the coaches discretion)
Communication is Necessary!
During each and every practice... work hard and be coachable. Practices should be hard work... NOT just a fun time on the water.
Practices happen on Mondays and Thursdays. Attendance is taken and attendance matters! The team needs to practice paddling AS A TEAM. When paddlers are missing... this hampers race preparation. It is mandatory to attend a minimum of four practices prior to any given race event.
Exceptions are made at the coaches discretion. Communication is imperative.
We absolutely need team players to be successful. We need teammates to have a good attitude and understand sitting out and stepping up.
