Registration is now Open for the Masters Rowing Spring Session, which starts with a free Open House on Monday, April 17, 2017. 

Greensboro Crew is excited to announce the upcoming season of “Masters Spring Session” – Rowing for adults ages 21+ on Lake Brandt.

No prior rowing experience is necessary.

“The purpose of the Spring Session is to foster healthy living in a fun team environment for adults through the wonderful sport of rowing,” says club founder Gene Kininmonth. “The highlight of the spring will be the opportunity for all rowers to participate in the 2017 Virginia Sprints on the James River in Richmond, VA in early June.”

Format: Participants with no prior experience will start with a learn-to-row format.  As technique and stamina improve, a more competitive format will be adopted. Experienced rowers will row together in boat orders as assigned by the coaches. For safety reasons, participants must be confident swimmers. In addition to rowing, participants will be expected to serve on occasions as coxswains, the member of the crew that steers the boat and makes the calls.

Dates and Times: Monday & Wednesday (6-pm – 7:30pm).  Session starts Wednesday, April 19 and concludes June 7.

Attire: Tee shirt, form-fitting shorts, and flip-flops are usual attire. Loose fitting shorts will likely catch in the “slide” (where the rowing seat moves back and forth in the boat). Bring a water bottle too! Sunglasses are good.

Cost: $200 per rower. No partial refund for missed sessions or weather related cancellations. Check with your company’s wellness program for full or partial reimbursement.
