The Masters Men’s Team is a group of masters-age (21 and over) men who meet for coached rowing workouts. The Masters Men’s Team is a competitive racing program that participates in sweep and sculling events at local, regional, and national masters races. Coaching fees are ~$12 per month.
We are looking for coxswains, experienced or willing to learn, to join our team. Team coxswains at LMRC are eligible for membership at no cost. Please contact the men’s team captains if you are interested or would like more information.
A prospective new team member should be an experienced rower with a fitness level allowing immediate participation in the workouts. However, “rusty” rowers are welcome to try out for a 2-week period, since improvement is the best indicator of eventual success. Prospective Masters Men’s Team rowers can also try out after rowing with the LMRC Intermediate Program.
All team members are expected to attend all practices. However, members can sign out on the team’s calendar for work, vacation, and other reasons at the discretion of the member, who must remember that attendance is one of the criteria used by the coach in setting race lineups.
In addition to club membership, Masters Men’s Team participants pay a small additional monthly coaching fee of $13/month. Coxswains (except those who also row) are not charged any of these fees, but must sign a release and complete the swim test requirement of LMRC membership. For more information, see the LMRC membership page.
