In a one week or condensed weekend introduction to sculling class, students of all ages will learn about the basics of rowing in a one-person boat, including proper terminology, equipment handling, an overview of river navigation, and of course, the rowing stroke. Upon successful completion of the course, a student who has passed the “Level I Sculler’s Test” will be certified to rent our Level I shells, including the Peinert Zephyrs, Maas Aeros, and Hudson Training Shells. This program is recommended for those with little to no rowing experience or those looking to get back into a boat after an extended absence (Ages 12-Adult)
Take the next step in developing your rowing skills in our Intermediate Sculling Class. This class reinforces the basic skills first introduced in our “Learn to Scull” class, while still providing participants with the opportunity to grow and improve their technique. Additional topics covered in the class include introductions to ratio, improving your set in a less stable boat, and further practice in navigating the river. Upon successful completion of the course, a student who has passed the “Level II Sculler’s Test” will be certified to rent our Level II shells, including the Maas 24 and Wintech 24 shells. This course is designed for those who have passed our “Level I Sculler’s Test”.
Moves beyond the basic skills covered in our first two classes to help students as they progress into our racing shells. Topics covered in this class involve how to handle the increased instability of a racing shell, how to build pressure and move the boat faster, and advanced navigation of the river. Upon successful completion of the course, a student who has passed the “Level III Sculler’s Test” will be certified to rent our Level III shells, including the Peinert 26 and Wintech racing shells. This course is designed for those who have passed our “Level II Sculler’s Test”.
Two separate programs are being offered, a class for juniors (grades 6-9) and a class for adults. In this introduction to sweep rowing, you will learn the basics of rowing in a multi-person team boat and establish a foundation for further participation in the sport. Participants will learn proper terminology, equipment handling, and the basics of the rowing stroke, in a stable, team like environment. Athletes who are interested in furthering their skills are encouraged to up for additional successive sessions.
In this class, the participants will take what they have learned in the Introduction to Sweep Rowing class and continue to develop their skills in a multi-person team boat environment. This class is great for building confidence and providing a supportive community in which participants can continue to grow into the sport of rowing.
