Winter Rowing League

October, 2014 - May 2015

Responding to strong interest in winter rowing fitness and technique development, TRRA offers a program that provides participants with a winter fitness regimen, as well as prepares rowers for the summer season. The Winter Rowing League (WRL) is offered in three sessions during the winter, each season consisting of several weekly practice session options for any skill level. Come alone or with your summer teammates and company co-workers.

The class will be broken into two divisions: Level 1 and Level 2.

Level 1 - Designed for all newcomers to rowing looking to get involved with the sport, but either still want to learn what it's all about, or are looking for a place to start. Practices will emphasize proper technique, rowing together, and proper instruction and use of common rowing commands. Level 1 can be taken more than one season, which is a great way to get a strong foundation of technique and fitness.

Level 2 - Perfect for those who already know the basics! Whether you've taken one indoor class or been on the water for years, this class will serve you well. You will not only get technical instruction, but you'll get some great workouts! Prerequisite - Any prior rowing experience or class required.

If you're not sure which level to sign up for, feel free to contact Megan Kuehm for information.

There is a minimum number of participants needed to hold the class. TRRA will notify anyone who is in a class that needs to be canceled. This does not happen very often.

If you missed your opportunity to participate in the Winter Rowing League, please consider the Summer Rowing League. Novices and Experienced rowers are welcome!

Practices:

Practices will incorporate one hour workouts promoting rowing fitness, which may include rowing machines, rowing tanks, abd floor exercises related to rowing movement & technique.

Practices will be coached. There will be a progressive curriculum that will account for the goals and overall experience level of participants. Tank capacity is 16.

Rowers will be encouraged to use the Millvale ergs & weight room after the formal practice has ended.

Bring water bottles!

Attire:

There is no need for special attire for rowing. It is recommended that shorts or sweats be relatively snug fitting as loose material easily catches in the rowing seat wheels. Bicycle shorts or tights are ideal. Any running shoes or sneakers will be fine.

Remember that it is winter and you will work up a sweat, so bring warm clothing to wear when departing.
