Learn To Row
Masters Learn to Row is our basic introductory sweep class, which will get you on the Watuppa Pound to teach you sweep rowing basics in no time. It’s perfect for people of all fitness levels and previous athletic experience! Class begins in a stable 8-person “barge” in which you will become familiar with rowing terminology and the fundamentals of technique while learning to row in a fun group environment.
Class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6am and 10am
A fun, recreational rowing environment where participants continue to improve their rowing skills and also get a good workout in with continuous rowing during each practice. Recreational Sweeps will have rowers with a range of skill levels depending on their ability as well as how many years they have rowed in the program.
Coaches will assess rowers using our Sweeps Learning Goals as a guideline to balance and support the needs of all athletes in the program. Rowers should also expect to continue their coxing experience in Recreational Sweeps, and take turns steering the boat. While practice plans will vary from coach to coach, approximately 25% of each practice is spent on skill development and 75% on continuous rowing.
Class meets Tuesday and Thursday 6am and 10am
Log-Book Sweeps is the intermediate step between Intro to Rowing and Recreational Sweeps. Time is spent practicing the skills needed to transition from rowing in the barge to rowing in an 8+. There will be a wide range of progress during the term as everyone works together to build on their skills. Rowers should expect to learn coxing skills as well, which involves directing the boat from the boathouse to the water, and steering the boat during practice.
The program is appropriate for any adult rower who has completed the Intro to Row program.
Class meets Saturdays at 8am and 10am
