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.
