Help keep our volunteer spirit alive. Our boathouse is member run and it takes every member contributing his/her time to keep our boathouse running smoothly and keep our costs low. LWRC requires all members to volunteer at least 10 hours per year. Less than 1 hour per month! We will accept almost anything related to helping out LWRC. Be part of our community by volunteering.
Please check out the Volunteer Bulletin Board located next to the bathroom in the middle bay, look at the descriptions on our tracking system. Contact the LWRC Office for current volunteer opportunities. Right now we looking for volunteers with facilities related skills (plumbing, electrical, cleaning) or anyone who is interested in helping to maintain the coaches launches (checking for damage, safety equipment inventory).
Please track your hours, using our new Volunteer Tracking System in Mind Body. Log into Mind Body with your credentials first, then enter your hours. For 2019, we will charge $10 per hour for every hour you do not volunteer, up to 6 hours. If you are unable to volunteer you will be charged $60 at the end of the calendar year. Make sure to track as you go to avoid extra fees.
Learn to Row Volunteers
Another great volunteer opportunity is to help out with our many Learn to Row classes this year. Our LTR coaches are amazing but sometimes having an extra set of hands/eyes/voice helps the students have an even better, more fulfilling experience. We are looking for volunteers to help with boat handling, teach the basic rowing stroke, and generally keep our students safe!
We are asking our club members to come help out with the many classes starting March 14th. Information on class times are on the “Learn to Row” page. Spring classes are the only ones listed but will be similar for the rest of the year. We are in need of volunteers for all of our classes but mainly LTR Next Strokes (both AM and PM classes) and LTR Sweep. Another great way to fulfill your required 10 volunteer hours!
If you think you can help, even if it’s just a class or two or a day or two during the week, please contact Amy Hildebrandt.
UW Regatta Volunteers
A BIG Thank You to everyone who helped with set-up, running, and breaking down every UW home regatta! There were four home regattas this year and each one took a massive team to keep it running smooth. Our Master Coordinator, Dave Rutherford, deserves the biggest shout out and HUGE thank you. Without his guidance, the starting platform could be in the middle of Lake Washington right now. THANK YOU EVERYONE!
