Adult Competitive Rowing
Handicaps are available at ages 27+. (21-26 are 0.0 handicap).
The masters rowing program pushes adult athletes to a higher level of performance by focusing on cardio endurance, precise technique, and race preparation. Rowers compete in various regattas throughout the state and often regionally as well.
Masters team members are expected to be at all practices, be on time, and give 100% effort both at practice and at regattas.
No tryouts are held. Team members will regularly have their times tested on the ergs. Seat races will be done for all regattas. (Do not be scared of seat racing - it is to track personal progress as well as determine seat position.) Good luck everyone and let's keep winning those races!
Getting on a Crew
You must be a member to join masters. You should have completed Learn to Row and either 200 Intermediate Sweep rowing or have participated in Adult Recreation, or similar experience.
