Learn to row and intermediate and advanced adult rowing programs.
ADULT ON-WATER CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
Beginner Barge: For men and women of all ages who have no sliding seat rowing experience, but experienced rowers are welcome. Coaches will teach the rowing stroke using the 8-person, stable Barge. Rowers will learn the proper technique and vocabulary and transition into using rowing as a workout within this class. Barge classes meet 2 or 3 times a week.
Beginner Zephyr: If you successfully row through the beginner barge classes, you are eligible to progress to the zephyrs, which are wide, one-person sculling boats. Here, rowers will strengthen their technique to include the sculling form and transition into using rowing as a workout. Once the rower has a solid grasp on the sculling stroke, the coach may transition him/her into a training single (x25/26).
Intermediate Sculling/Advanced Sculling: Rowers who have successfully completed the Beginner Barge and Beginner Zephyr class and progressed into the training single can take this class to gain comfort and confidence in a smaller shell. Coaches will use drills to develop the rower and work with them to reach their personal goals of fitness and speed in the training singles. This will also prepare some rowers for the Sculling B test.
Intermediate Quad/Advanced Quad: Rowers who have successfully demonstrated their confidence in a 1x and wish to pursue sculling in a team boat. Quads have four scullers in a boat. Coaches will work on the individuals’ technique and ability to work together to move the boat. Rowers who are seasoned in the 1x and 2x can take this class as a step toward becoming bow-certified.
