ROWING

“RowBOC” is the nickname of the Brattleboro Outing Club Rowing Program. We are in our seventh season rowing from our docks on the West River in Brattleboro, VT.

Join BOC to access the online registration forms. Rowers may join the Brattleboro Outing Club Rowing Program after completing a Learn-to-Row program or demonstrating their skill level to one of our coaches.

RowBOC Boathouse Directions: Spring Tree Rd. off Putney Rd., east bank of the West River. Drive in toward Marina Restaurant and turn right just before the guard rail, follow dirt road to tan Quonset Hut on the right.

Our members range from youth rowers to novice adult and experienced adult rowers. The rowing season generally runs from late April to the middle of November. Our dock and boathouse on Spring Tree Lane gives us access to both the West River and beyond that, the Connecticut River. We are so fortunate to have access to these two rivers with all their varied conditions.

Membership in RowBOC entitles rowers to use club equipment depending on their proven individual skill level and on a first-come, first-served basis. We do not use a reservation system for certain boats at scheduled times. There are planned group rows throughout the season and we welcome all members to join in. We have active local members who travel from as far afield as Peterborough, NH and Bellows Falls to row with us!

The RowBOC boathouse has a variety of boats available for sweep and sculling in singles, doubles, pairs, quads, and fours. We place emphasis on safety and correct rowing form, as well as care for the boats and equipment. Certain boats are limited to members who have demonstrated advanced rowing skill and boat handling in and out of water.

The RowBOC coach is available for private lessons for those who cannot attend the clinics but wish to become skilled enough to join the club. Please contact tim@coreflowyoga.com about private lessons.

TENNIS

The Brattleboro Outing Club tennis facility, conveniently located at 202 Cedar Street in Brattleboro, is home to six of the most beautifully-maintained red clay courts in New England. With the rustic charm and casual setting of its 30s-era tennis clubhouse, low membership fees, and relaxed family-oriented atmosphere, the BOC tennis facility offers a superb tennis option for residents of all ages. (How to find us.)

The tennis season runs from late April until early November, depending on the weather. Adult membership is $200 per year (no added court fees). Membership for children 21 and under is free when they are signed up with a parent, guardian, or Big Brother/Sister. Otherwise, the junior membership fee is only $40 per year. Guests are welcome to play with a member for a $15 fee-per-court use (i.e., one to three guests may play for $15, per reservation; remember, each tennis membership includes two free guest passes). (How to obtain your username and password for the court reservation system.)

This is a volunteer club and everyone is expected to chip in as much as they can. Adult members who volunteer to work a total of four hours during the tennis season earn a credit of $50 towards the following year’s membership fee. We need the help of our volunteers, especially at the beginning- and end-of-season work days, to help us maintain the courts and keep our programs running successfully.

Historically the BOC has always been a volunteer-driven organization, and the tennis committee and the BOC board encourage members to continue this time-honored tradition. Volunteer participation allows the BOC to remain affordable and to retain its unique character, and it’s also a great way to meet other members.

The Membership Welcome Letter will give you all the information you need about the club, including how to stay abreast of what is happening at the club, the different opportunities offered to club members, the few rules that are needed to keep the club enjoyable for all, and suggestions for meeting other members, such as club mixers, singles and doubles leagues, youth camps, adult clinics and private or group lessons.

We strongly recommend the online PayPal option. It expedites the process for you, simplifies the process for us, and gets all of your information accurately into our database. We will email you verification and instructions for making online court reservations.

The BOC tennis committee consists of six to nine members who volunteer their time to conduct the business of the tennis program. All members are welcome at the tennis committee meetings usually on the second Monday of each month, at 7 pm at the clubhouse on Cedar St. through the summer.
