Our COVID precautions

We are still in operation during the COVID pandemic, although we have had to modify aspects of our programming to help accommodate. Our guiding principles include keeping athletes socially distant, outdoors in small cohorts, with masks on at all times when within 10 ft of anybody. If you'd like to learn more about our complete COVID guidance and rules, please email us at oarscoaches@gmail.com or call us at 510-853-0657

A few key changes to our day-to-day operations

  • All members must participate in twice-weekly COVID testing provided by OARS

  • Our indoor facilities are closed

  • Our training is primarily in single-person rowing boats - these keep athletes 20+ feet apart, and have the added benefit of teaching athletes fundamental skills. As a club, we have always taught our athletes in the single - so we have experience getting athletes out safely and learning to be great rowers!
