Unlimited rowing programs
Whether you rowed in high school or college or learned as an adult, we welcome all masters ready to step back into a shell. Those who join should be willing to commit to a consistent training schedule. You remember those 6:00am practices—the 5:00am alarms, the countless strokes, the erg workouts, the callused hands —well, they’re back. But by 7:30am, after stepping out of your boat with eight of your newest friends, you will experience that superhuman feeling and head out to conquer the world (and maybe eat a second breakfast).
Our Masters program meets several times per week, and takes rowing seriously enough to continually improve and compete, but not so seriously that we can’t have fun. We welcome rowers into our Masters Program throughout the year. Please take a look at the options below.
Previous Experience Requirements
Our programs are open to experienced adult rowers who have either rowed in college, high school, elite or other masters programs, or greatly developed their skills through learn-to-row sessions. These rowers are expected to have a solid understanding of basic rowing techniques and concepts, in addition to basic technical terminology. If you first need to refresh your technique, we advice you to take one of our Learn to Row or Learn to Scull courses.
Our on-water programming takes place in the spring, summer, and fall. If you are interested in training with us through the winter, we also offer an indoor program on the erg and an outdoor program at a location in a park. Look at our Winterprogram for the overview.
We aim to compete in local and regional regattas throughout the summer and fall seasons. Races and events are selected by coaches based on the competitive potential of the crew. Attending regatta’s is optional with additional costs, if you signed up for the “unlimited rowing” program.
