Competitive Rowing

Competitive programs are available for those at the intermediate or experienced level.

In the Competitive rowing sessions, rowers work on both rowing technique and conditioning.  We utilize a variety of boats and you will have the opportunity to sweep and scull. Participants in all programs should also plan on taking turns in the coxswains seat.


Several Competitive sessions are offered throughout the outdoor season. Sessions for the experienced rower generally take place in the early morning during the week.  There is a fee for each 4 week session. Please note that you can register for any program without making the commitment for full-fledged club membership by registering as a Non-Member.  The schedule for 2024 is as follows:

  • Session 1: May 6 – May 31 (M/W/F)
  • Session 2: Jun. 3 – Jun. 28 (M/Tu/Th/F)
  • Session 3: Jul. 1 – Jul. 26 (M/Tu/Th/F)
  • Session 4: Jul. 29 – Aug. 23 (M/Tu/Th/F)
  • Session 5: Aug. 26 – Oct. 25 (M/W/F)

See Registration for more details.

If you have rowed before but not extensively, or haven’t rowed for a number of years, you may want to consider starting with one of our Intermediate sessions.  If you are unsure which program is right for you, contact the coach of the program in which you are interested.


Whether you choose to row with the Intermediate or Advanced group, there are numerous opportunities available throughout the season to participate in regattas.

Drop-In Rates

Rowers not registered for a session may drop-in at any practice, as room allows, for $20/practice. Prior notice of at least 24 hours is appreciated.


Fall Regatta League

A session specifically to train for fall regattas begins in late August.


We can make lineup adjustments as needed if you are not able to attend a particular practice during the session. You are expected to give the coach advance notice if you are not able to attend a practice. If your schedule does not permit you to attend all days of the session, please note that at the time of your registration. We can also work with you to accommodate work or vacation schedules. Partial sessions are acceptable.
