Mentoring

Beginning rowers will be partnered with a mentor for 6 free sessions in doubles or singles. You’ll learn the basics and then have the opportunity to join our standard programming with larger groups and a coach, or pass a flip test and row on your own schedule.

Prior to beginning the mentoring sessions, the new rower:

  • Must pass the swim test or be willing to wear a PFD while rowing
  • Sign the US Rowing waiver online
  • Watch the safety video online
  • Pay the club membership fee of $150
  • Must be at least 14 years old

PM Sweeps and Sculls

Our recreational rowing programs are appropriate for rowers that have graduated from our mentoring program, or are more experienced rowers.

Please refer to the Recreational Programs for more info.  Please note you can register for a recreational program without making the commitment for full-fledged club membership by registering for the program as a Non-Member.

Learn to be a Coxswain

Coxswains are an instrumental part of the crew, and are responsible for motivating and unifying the crew. The coxswain’s primary responsibility is the safety of his or her crew. In addition to steering the boat, the coxswain also acts as the coach’s assistant.

Become a coxswain and hone your leadership skills to coach and motivate your crew. Coxswains learn by doing – with an already experienced crew.  The best coxswains also know how to row.  If you’d like to give it a try, let us know.

Novice Programs

We offer beginner programming through our PM Sweeps and Sculls sessions. Please refer to the Registration form for the schedule. Please note you can register for our programs without making the commitment for full-fledged club membership by registering for the program as a Non-Member.
