The opportunity to be filmed and projected on the large screen (while you row) is an incredible teaching tool for our coaches and a comprehensive learning tool for our participants.

Competitive Rowing Winter Training

Saturdays 6:30-8:00am (Pick two days per week)
This 1.5 hr class is a winter training option for experienced rowers, those looking to train at a higher intensity, or anyone who may be interested in competing in the future. We will post an erg workout on the board, and then break out into smaller groups in the rowing tanks. Coached tank sessions will focus on teaching athletes how their stroke moves the boat more efficiently and faster. Competitive Winter Training requires a minimum of two days per week commitment.

Rowing Center Open Access
