Programs & Registration

Session 4 will run 6 weeks: Mon Sep 13 – Sun Oct 24.  Registration is open!

With the shortening days as we head into fall, all evening classes from this session on will run from 6-7:30pm.  Also due to darkness, the Tuesday evening sculling class is being replaced with experienced sweep.  Rowers should be punctual so that we can maximize the reduced evening class times.

The fourth session includes experienced sweep, sculling, novice, rec sweep, and designated race team practices.  Novice classes are for those who have completed learn-to-row this summer.  The rec sweep classes are intended for those desiring a more technical and less intense row.  Experienced sweep classes have higher expectations for fitness level and skill so that the coaches can carry out more strenuous class plans.   Race team practices are for designated race line-ups — once line-ups are set, registration information will be provided to those racing.  Please review the goals and prerequisites before signing up for class.

After October 24th, we will continue to hold classes as the weather and water level allows, on a single-row payment basis, and likely following the same schedule.  We hope to start the first indoor rowing session in early November.

All sweep rowing is restricted to fully vaccinated rowers.

Sculling includes singles, doubles, and quads.  Unvaccinated rowers may row in singles, and in doubles with a vaccinated rower who consents.  We may be able to accommodate a few beginning scullers, but require that they have at least one full season of sweep rowing experience in order to participate.

We are able to offer a modest early bird discount for this session.  The discount is available until midnight Friday, Sep 10th, and will be automatically applied at check-out.

There is some scholarship funding available from the McNeill-Baker fund — please contact alix@rochesterboatclub.org if interested in applying.

For questions regarding our programming, please email us at registrations@rochesterboatclub.org.

Recreational/Resumer — 6 Weeks (9/13–10/24) — Tue, Thu, Sat

Goal: to provide a lower-intensity, highly technical rowing experience for those looking to develop rowing aptitude at a very detailed and iterative pace.  Classes will be structured around a theme with a balanced duration of drills and regular rowing.  Work will be largely done at steady state in any combination of fours, sixes, and eights with some higher intensity rowing where appropriate.

Expectations:

  • Most rate work ≤ 24 with the occasional higher rate work
  • A varied amount of rowing by various pairs, fours, sixes, and by all eight
  • Very detailed instruction with plenty of time to apply and develop skills
  • Piecework will be lower in intensity while still providing a workout
