Rowing (Crew) is a wonderful sport that will help you get into, or maintain, top physical condition. Our Adult Rowing Program is a great way to meet other men and women (ages 21 and up) who enjoy teamwork and a challenging workout. Check out our accomplishments.
Erging: We begin by teaching you how to row on indoor rowing machines known as ergometers or "ergs", for short. This is a great way for you to learn the important basics of the sport and get a no-impact, full-body workout!
Sweep Rowing: This is rowing in a four or eight seat boat with one oar per person. Team sweep rowing involves practices four times a week and four to six races over the spring, summer, and early fall.
Learn-To-Row: For those who have not rowed before, the club offers a learn-to-row course followed by a season on the novice team to build proficiency, strength, endurance and confidence. During or after the novice season, a rower may, at a coach's discretion, move to the competitive masters team. Registration and further information available here.
Those who have previous rowing experience and wish to join the competitive masters team should make arrangements to attend a masters practice. After an assessment by a head coach, a rower may either remain with the masters team or spend a period of time with the novice team developing power and technique before joining the competitive group.
