The sport of rowing is one of the premier forms of exercise – it uses all of the major muscle groups and provides aerobic conditioning and strength training. It also provides a sense of teamwork, camaraderie and purpose. Whether you’re competitive or out for a little fun and exercise, we’ve got a place for you.
WRA Masters Program
The program is open to all those age 19 and above and will consist of sessions covering boat handling, water safety, and the fundamentals of rowing. In addition, it will consist of sessions involving fine tuning your rowing, racing process and longer distance rows. Participants will be coached in small groups both on the water in boats and on indoor rowing machines. Participants should plan to attend all sessions. You can find rowing terminology here.
