The Varsity Rowing Program is part of the RRCMN Juniors division and offers a year round program for grades 8 to 12. The program includes competitive fall, spring and summer seasons as well as a winter conditioning program. Unlike many sports, you can start rowing at any age (11+) and be successful. To join the Varsity Team, rowers must be dedicated and have a desire to excel on the water. Joining the Varsity team must be a decision made by the athlete, parents, and coaches. Any questions regarding the varsity team can be directed to Coach Ted Scheitel
Monday- Friday 3:45 - 5:45 pm
Saturday 8 - 10 am
Winter training is currently taking place virtually, but we will train at the Soldier's Field Golf Course once we are in-person.
On water training will resume in April on Silver Lake when the weather is sufficiently warm.
Erg practices will be held at the old Fire Station #2 right by the boathouse.

The Rochester Rowing Club strives to keep dues as minimal as possible while maintaining excellent staff and good equipment. We have bench-marked other sports and found that RRC continues to be one of the best sports values in the region. In addition to dues, we are dependent on the wonderful generosity of our parents and others to keep our budget balanced and to meet the growing demands for equipment and coaches. RRCMN offers payment plans and scholarships to help with the cost.
RRC has continued rowing in one-person boats and bundling up as the weather gets colder. The Adult Team is organizing a competition dubbed the Double-Headed Goose for Saturday morning, October 24. Once it gets too dark and too cold to row, we'll take a break and then gear up for indoor winter training.
