Adult Rowing

From college students to retirees, beginners to the very experienced, men and women of all ages and physical abilities can participate in our classes for beginning, intermediate and experienced rowers. Classes are offered in both large, team boats (sweep rowing) and smaller, individual boats (sculling) in spring, summer and fall, and during the winter we train indoors. Current program offerings are listed below. 

Scholarships may be available to adult rowers. To inquire, contact Jonathan Near by email.
