Adult Rowing at RRC
We offer several programs that range in skill and experience level from recreational to competitive. Our goal is to provide a space for all of our Adult members to become better rowers at their own pace, and to provide competitive opportunities for those who want to take their rowing to the next level.

 

Membership and Coached Programming fees are required for participation in any and all programs beyond our Learn to Row course. If you are a new rower, please visit our Learn to Row page, or contact us to schedule a Private Lesson with a coach.


 

 

 

Experienced Adult League

Tuesdays/Thursdays 7:00am - 8:30am

Saturday/Sundays 7:00am - 9:00am

This league is a co-ed, semi-competitive team for experienced adult rowers, ages 19+. The primary focus of the league is on improving fitness and technique in a fun, focused environment with skill-appropriate opportunities to race at local and regional regattas. This league is for rowers with at least 3 months of experience or prior consent from the Program Director.

NEW! Intermediate Adult League

Mondays/Wednesdays 6:30pm - 8:00pm

This league is a co-ed, recreational team for intermediate adult rowers, ages 19+. This group is tech-focused and curriculum is centered around improving comfort on the water and fine tuning each athlete's stroke in a fun and social environment. Athletes who wish to compete will have the opportunity to learn the basics of race preparation and execution in this class. This program is for rowers with at least one full Learn to Row class completed or prior consent from the Program Director.

Saturday Sculling Classes

Saturdays 5:45am - 6:45am

This class offers technique focused work in small boats. It is a great option for new rowers who would like a little more focus on the stroke before moving to the Adult League, or for experienced rowers who want to fine tune their skills.

This class is open to rowers with at least one full Learn to Row course completed.

Note: no class on October 2, 2021
