NON-COMPETITIVE PROGRAMS:

 

(NEW) Adult/Youth Recreational – June Singles/Doubles

This program is for participants with previous singles rowing experience only and is not suitable for Learn to Row participants. The Adult/Youth Recreational program is for adults and youth wanting to get some physical exercise with others and enjoy the sport of rowing in more of a recreational atmosphere.  Participants will be grouped together by experience level and train in single sculls or doubles with family members. Our focus is on athletes gaining rowing knowledge, skill development, and fitness at their own pace with 2 sessions per week. All participants in this program should already have some previous rowing experience (sculling or sweeping) from any of our past programs or have some other previous rowing experience. All participants should also be confident rowing a single sculling shell. This program is also ideal for any participants from our 2020 Sculling Development and Train to Train programs who are looking for an opportunity to back on the water and continue to work on improving their rowing technique prior to the start of the summer season. For those who do not have previous single sculling shell experience or are looking for a Learn to Row program we would recommend our summer Adult/Youth Recreational + Sculling Development Program option which will start running in July.
