Sweep Programs

Novice Sweep

*Prerequisites:  Completion of the Learn to Row class or recent rowing experience

The Novice Sweep program is a co-ed program. Newly graduated Learn to Row attendees will focus on improving basic skills, fitness and rowing technique. Rowers can then move to the intermediate group within the program to further their rowing development. 

Rowers have the option to compete in local regattas, meet other teams and have fun competing against other rowing clubs. The races vary in distance,  rowers race 5,000 meters during the fall “head season” and 1,000 meters during the spring/summer “sprint season.”

Advanced Sweep Program 
* Prerequisites: Completion of two years of novice sweep rowing, or based on the coach's evaluation of the rowers skills.

This co-ed program is for adult rowers who have a solid background in rowing, either through completion of novice sweep program or prior rowing experience, and want to take their skills to the next level while challenging their fitness, strength and racing skills.

Practice takes place in eights, fours and small boats (singles, double, pairs). Coaches group rowers by similar ability levels and set lineups for both practice and regattas.  

Competitive Sweep Program
This program focuses on preparing rowers for specific races throughout the seasons. Rowers who are interested in the program must meet erg requirements and skill evaluation by the coach to participate. Practice takes place in eights, fours, quads and small boats (singles, double, pairs).

Land Training Program
This session further develops technique, conditioning and flexibility of rowers in preparation for the winter and spring programs.  

Membership and Program Fees
All of the above programs require club membership and coaching fees.
