Circuits & Welcome Drinks Come down to the first circuits session of the year to meet the captains and team. TBC
Tuesday Training Come down to the first training session of the year and get to know the captains, coaches and squad leaders whilst doing some relatively relaxed training. Don’t worry, the harder stuff kicks in after not too long 😉 TBC
Sports Night Out Catch up for a few pinkies or perkies at the illustrious Vincent’s Club, the Oxford Blues Sports Club, before heading out to discounted Sports Club Night at Park End. TBC
Thursday Training Have another opportunity to come down to the track and try out all the events you’d like whilst getting to know all the members even better. TBC
AC v CCC Crewdate Get to know our long distance friends over drinks and fine meal at the prestigious Arzoo, a great introduction to the crewdating scene! TBC
Hill Session For those keen and recovered from the night before, there will be a hills session at South Parks – always a good session to clear the head with some fresh air at the end of the week! TBC
Cuppers Come down to the track to have a go at any or all events that you would like in a non-pressure, light-hearted atmosphere, with a barbeque and all the committee members available to answer any questions you have. This is a crucial event for those looking for selection for the Freshers Varsity Match against Cambridge so be sure to be there! TBC
