Programs & Registration

We are delighted to be able to offer both sweep rowing and sculling this year as we return to the canal!  The first session on the water runs from Monday, May 10th through Sunday, June 20th.

Our second 6-week session runs Mon Jun 21st – Sun Aug 1, and registration is open!

The second session will include experienced sweep, sculling, learn-to-row, and rec/’resumer’ sweep.  The rec/’resumer’ sweep classes are intended for those with some previous on-the-water experience who are returning to it after time away from the sport, as well as for anyone desiring a more technical and less intense row.  Experienced sweep classes have expectations for fitness level and skill so that the coaches can carry out more strenuous class plans.  Please review the goals and prerequisites before signing up for class, and contact Coach Anthony (anthony@rochesterboatclub.org) if you have any questions about the appropriate class for you.

All sweep rowing is restricted to fully vaccinated rowers.

Sculling will include 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 bring back a modest early bird discount for this session.  The discount is available until midnight Thursday, June 17th, 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.

Note to our Friday morning experienced scullers: at this point, we don’t have consistent coach coverage for that class, so we will likely allow for uncoached organized group rows with boat rentals for you when there is no coach available, and a single-row arrangement when there is a coach available.  If you’re interested in that class, and you aren’t registering for any other classes during the session, please send an email to registrations@rochesterboatclub.org so that we can keep you in the loop.

Coaches

We are delighted to have the following coaching staff:  Anthony Petrella (Head Coach), Connor Wilt, Zoe Zapel, Heidi Granville, Erin Kealey, Bri Fennessey.

Learn-to-Row — 6 Weeks (6/21–8/1) — Thu, Sat

For those new to rowing on the water.  Please review the information here before signing up.  We recommend signing up for both classes if you can, as you will advance much more quickly, but realize that is not possible for everyone.  If you need to miss class one week, you should still be able to complete the training, but if you’ll be missing more than that, you might want to wait for the next session.  We do allow make-ups within the session, and will carry over credits to a subsequent session for learn-to-rowers.

NOTE: First class for ALL Learn-to-Row participants will be held on Thursday, June 24th, from 6-8pm, at the Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center (PIRC), at 2800 Clover St. in Pittsford.  Thursday class fee is pro-rated as a result.

All subsequent classes (Thursdays and Saturdays) will be held at the RBC boathouse in Fairport, west of the liftbridge on the north side of the canal.

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
