ADULT PROGRAMS

Our programs develop rowers at all levels, from beginners

(novices) to competitive masters for anyone 18 and older. Rowing requires a certain level of physical fitness, coordination, and time investment to be a satisfying endeavor, but mastering it can be very rewarding. 

 

Rowing refers to sweep rowing where each person has one oar, held by both hands, and sculling where each rower has two oars, one in each hand. Sweeping is done in eights (8+), fours (4+), and pairs (2-). Sculling is done in quads (4x), doubles (2x), and singles (1x). Our course descriptions may use "rowing" to refer to both sweeping and sculling unless specified. Eights and fours require the use of a coxswain (cox) to direct the boat.

Click on the links below to registration & description.  All levels are welcome, and not all programs require experience.  We currently offer three levels of adult instruction: The adult learn to row weekend will provide a brief introduction to the sport. The masters learn to sweep is a five-week course for complete beginners or those with only limited experience. The recreational sweep rowing class is a more competitive setting available to those who have mastered basic technique through an introductory course or prior experience.The coaches for our adults include a former Olympian and a former Division I coxswain.  Our coaches make it fun for beginners and competitive for the more experienced.  Many classes offered during the week from 6 am - 7:30 am so you can get your workout finished before the start of the workday!
