The Novice/Recreational Rowing Team is open to anyone who completes the Beginning Sweep Rowing classes or has rowed in the past and wants to get back into the sport. Rowers need not attend all practices of the team as we do not compete in races. Our main objectives are to build skills for the newer rowers, bring up skills of past rowers, and help improve fitness for everyone.
We row mostly 8+ boats, but sometimes take out 4+ or Quads to fill seats. Members of the team pay $39/month coaching fees in addition to regular club membership. Guests are welcome to come check out the group for 2 weeks at no charge to see if this would be a great addition to your fitness plan. Members of the Novice/Recreational team can move up to the Mixed Masters team when their skills are consistent with that group’s expectations and from there to the Women's/Men's team depending of personal goals.
On Thursday evening practices we invite novice scullers, including anyone who has completed the Beginning Sculling Class or has previous sculling experience, to join us for a coached practice in doubles and quads.
