Adult Program

The Rochester Rowing Club’s adult program is for rowers of all athletic backgrounds and ages.


During the rowing season (from the second week in April to the end of October), adults who have on-the-water experience meet two evenings a week at 6:00pm (depending on schedules) while Saturday times remain flexible depending on the needs of the group, but will generally be Saturday mornings. Coached sessions will occur once a week. In addition, experienced rowers may arrange to meet at other times when schedules permit.  For your safety, the club requires adults to carry life jackets in their shells at all times. When rowing with RRC equipment, at least two rowers should be on the water at all times and within sight of each other. In the winter, the adult team trains twice a week at EDGE FITNESS.

ADULT LEARN-TO-ROW PROGRAM | June 18th – 29th | 6-8pm | $150

RRCMN welcomes all adults who would like to come try rowing!  You do not need previous experience or be in great condition — the focus in Learn to Row is on proper technique and having fun (and you will get a physical and mental workout!).  If you are concerned about any physical limitation, please contact Coach.

Participants choose six days to attend out of the eight days Learn-To-Row is offered.  However, it is strongly encouraged that you attend the first two days to go over the basics.  The classes take place from 6:00 to 8:00 pm Monday through Thursday at the Rochester Rowing Club boathouse (710 West Silver Lake Drive — behind the old Silver Lake Fire Station). Please wear workout clothing (nothing baggy), wear socks (shoes will not be used), a hat, sunglasses and plenty of water in an unbreakable container.  Bathrooms are located at the site, but there are no shower facilities. Classes meet rain or shine, however if there is lightning the class will be held in an indoor location.

Come on… give rowing a try!
