Here at the start of Fall Season 2018, BIR kicks things off in traditional style with a brief window to order official team uniforms from the BIR Juniors JL Racing Store. These are high-quality items, perfect for training and cold race days, created specifically for the demands of rowing from JL’s own Drywick fabric. The store will be open only until the end of Thursday, September 13th, so you have just a week to jump in the JL boat!
For the fall, the only required uniform pieces for the upcoming regattas are a tech shirt and trou. Last year’s tech shirts and uniforms are unchanged this season, so if you purchased either one last year, they are still perfect for this season.
JL’s tech shirts are specifically cut for rowing with:
- Longer sleeves that allow reach at the catch without exposing too much skin to the elements,
- Longer tail in the back that also keeps your lower back covered, and
- Shorter front to prevent bunching at the finish.
The full team uniform (blue with white stripe and gold details) is ONLY mandatory for all novice and varsity rowers for the SPRING Regatta Season each year. Please do note that there will be another window to buy those uniforms in the spring and that there will again be notice posted of the JL Store re-opening here on the BIR website and on the BIR Facebook groups.
The JL Store also features a selection of useful non-mandatory BIR-branded training gear, hats, thermals, and rainwear. They are just the thing for getting through a PNW winter that is suddenly just around the corner.
More detailed uniform instructions are provided and frequently asked questions answered on the full BIR Juniors JL Racing Store page here at bainbridgerowing.org. Sizing guides are provided within the JL Store itself, and the JL staff are happy to answer specific questions. You can even submit your own measurements and they will be happy to help you personally with the appropriate sizing.
Additional, more casual BIR-branded supporters gear is also now available for your shopping pleasure at the BIR Spiritwear Store page.
