SORA's Covid-19 Precautions

As we continue with programming, we will continue to be diligent in enforcing the policies and protocols that we have put into place. All protocols fall in line with the current CDC health guidelines and imposed restrictions and are as follows.


  • Rower / Coaches exhibiting symptoms or who have been in contact with persons exhibiting symptoms MUST stay home.

  • IF you are waiting on COVID test results, we ask that you do NOT return to the boathouse until you have a confirmed NEGATIVE result.

  • Masks will be MANDATORY on land, around the boatyard and dock area, masks may be removed when in a boat.  

  • All rowers may NOT return to the boathouse without a signed waiver by both the rower and parent that they understand these guidelines.


  • Rowers/Coaches will have temperatures taken upon arrival to the boathouse, any temperature over 100 degrees will be sent home.

  • Rowers / Coaches will increase hand sanitizing on arrival and departure (we will provide and supervise).

  • Rowers / Coaches will maintain social distance (recommended 6 ft)

  • Boats and equipment will be washed before and after while keeping the suitable distances (Boat and Oars are cleaned with a bleach water mixture before and after rowing).

  • Rowers/Coaches will not gather in groups upon arrival and departure. Boat launch and recovery on the dock will be staggered appropriately to keep numbers on land low.

  • Coaches will ensure no interaction with other park users or park staff.

  • For Rowers who do not drive themselves. We will ask all parents to remain in their vehicles and not socialize with one another.

As a reminder, All rowers will need to bring this waiver with them when they return to the park, every rower and their parents must read and sign all NEW protocol and procedures. 


This opportunity is solely at the discretion of parents and athletes to make individual choices for their family. If for any reason these recommendations change we will adjust and take the appropriate action.

Thank you for your understanding and support for SORA during this time. Please feel free to contact myself or Coach Terry with any questions or concerns you may have.
