Moving to Varsity? Order your uni by 8/13/14!

What’s the real difference between Novice and Varsity?  The cool uniform!

Novice rowers moving up to Varsity this fall must order their Unis/Tech Shirts through our JLRacing Team Store by midnight, Wednesday, August 13, 2014 for delivery in time for our first regatta! (New Novice rowers will need a uniform t-shirt:  details here).

If you miss this deadline, you will need to order your uniform as an individual, directly from JL. Individual orders’ pricing and shipping will be different than a team purchase.

Each Uni is custom made-to-measure and takes 5-6 weeks for delivery (Boys $110, girls $113).

Use a tape measure and follow the directions on the site.  Click Here for more info.

A limited number of used Unis/Tech Shirts may be available.  If you’ve graduated or outgrown your uni, donate it to BRC or share it with a teammate.
