Rowing Injuries

Tuesday, September 9, 2014

As always, we (the Shen Crew coaches) are always looking for ways to improve our training program, and to contribute to the rowing community when we can. Recently a group of physical therapy graduate students put together a study for finding our the mechanisms of rowing injuries and how best to prevent them. They are currently running a study of high school rowers and I'd very much like all of our rowers to participate if possible.

Here is the link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3DR2MZY

And for anyone interested, here is the link to the project with more details about it: http://www.physio-pedia.com/Rowing_Injuries_Project

Thank you!

Remind 101

Monday, April 21, 2014

Updated to include masters.

We are going to start using a new system to get messages out to parents and athletes. It is a one-way messaging system for crew to send out notifications. This will allow anyone signed up (from as many devices and addresses as they like) to receive text messages, and takes about 30 seconds to subscribe to receive the messages. We will use these messages to send out announcements, practice cancellations and reminders. It is free to use, and if you wish to unsubscribe you simply text "stop" to the number.

To sign up for these text reminders simply text the code for the group you wish to join to (518) 633-1673 and that's it. You may join as many groups as you want, and leave any groups in the future.

Group codes:
Varsity Boys: @shencrewvb
Varsity Girls: @shencrewvg
Freshmen Boys: @shencrewfb
Freshmen Girls: @shencrewfg
Mod Boys: @shencrewmb
Mod Girls: @shencrewmg
Masters : @shenmaster

To leave a group after joining text "unsubscribe @groupCode" to (518) 633-1673, or text "stop" to unsubscribe from all classes.

Tail of the Fish

Friday, September 26, 2014 New/Updated!

All rowers should be at the trailer in Saratoga by 7AM tomorrow, coxswains should be there by 6:45.

Schedule of events can be found here: https://www.regattacentral.com/regatta/events/index.jsp?job_id=3676&org_id=2980

The regatta will be hosted at the Saratoga State Boat launch, on the east side of the bridge over fish creek. See map: http://www.saratogarowing.com/map-of-sra-facilities/

Weather tomorrow looks great, high of 81 and sunny. It probably would be a good idea for rowers to bring sunscreen. Also, as always, rowers should bring an extra set of clothes. It is a water sport, so there is always a chance that rowers end up wet and in need of a dry set of clothes.

Modified rowers will be dismissed when all modified boats are finished racing, and oars and boats are taken care of. Varsity and freshmen rowers are expected to stay until the trailer is loaded and ready to be driven home. Modifieds can expect to get done somewhere between 11am and 12pm. Varsity and freshmen should expect to be dismissed between about 3:00 and 4:00pm.

Any questions, please shoot me an e-mail DrewKroft@shencrew.com

Raise Money With GoodSearch

Monday, January 28, 2013

Please get on board now! We started with only 2 supporters 2 weeks ago, and have gotten up to 15 supporters. By doing nothing different except using a different search engine these 15 supporters have raised $4.00 in less than 2 weeks. Please help us turn this $4.00 into $40 and eventually $400!

Here is a very simple way to help Shen Crew out. GoodSearch.com uses a Yahoo! powered search engine. Every time you search using GoodSearch.com, they will donate about a penny to your favorite nonprofit (hopefully you choose Friends of Shenendehowa Crew). It's that simple.

In addition, do all of your shopping through their online shopping mall, GoodShop.com, where you can shop at more than 2,600 top online retailers and a percentage of your purchases will go to the charity or school of your choice. You pay the same price as you normally would, but a donation goes to your cause!

You can also enroll in the GoodDining program. Eat at over 10,000 participating restaurants nationwide and you can earn up to 6% of every dollar spent on the meal as a donation for your charity or school.

Here's the web site — http://www.goodsearch.com/ . You can also read about GoodSearch in the NY Times, Oprah Magazine, CNN, ABC News and the Wall Street Journal.

This is an easy way for you to help Shen Crew by doing the things that you already do, and it is of no cost at all to you! Please help us out and sign up for GoodSearch.
