Registration is now Open for the Masters Rowing AutumnMania, which starts on October 17, 2016.
Greensboro Crew is excited to announce the upcoming season of “Masters AutumnMania” – Rowing for adults on Lake Brandt and indoors in Jamestown.
No prior rowing experience is necessary.
“The purpose of Masters AutumnMania is to foster healthy living in a fun team environment for adults through the wonderful sport of rowing,” says club coach Scott Jones. “The highlight of AutumnMania will be the opportunity for all rowers to participate in the 2016 Head of the South Regatta in Augusta, GA on November 12.”
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: Participants may sign up for either weekday or weekend sessions or AutumnMania Unlimited. Note, there will be no rowing during either the Head of the South weekend (Nov12-13) or Thanksgiving Week (Tuesday Nov 24 – Sun Nov 29).
Weekday Rowing Lake Brandt (AM): Monday and Thursday mornings from 8:45am to 10:15am starting October 17 and ending December 15.
Weekday Indoor Rowing Jamestown (PM): Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00pm to 7:30pm starting October 17 and ending December 15.
Weekend Rowing Lake Brandt: Saturday mornings at 7:30am and Sunday afternoon at 3pm starting October 22 and ending December 18. (Note, there will be no rowing in High Point during the weekend of the Head of the South. Sunday times will move to 2:30pm in November due to shorter daylight hours).
AutumnMania Unlimited Sessions: participants can attend all of the above sessions.
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 for AutumnMania. No partial refund for missed sessions or weather related cancellations. Check with your company’s wellness program for full or partial reimbursement. Participants can attend all sessions by upgrading to the Fall Unlimited membership for $275.
