  • For current members of the Grand Rapids Rowing Association

Coach: Sydney Shea
Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursday, 9 - 11 am
Start Date: June 28, 2016
End Date: July 21, 2016

The class is designed for adult rowers who have either participated in a 100-level learn to row session or have other substantial rowing experience. Participants will focus on learning techniques to build endurance and speed on the water, beginning racing strategy, and a greater overall sweep skill set. The content of all 200-level courses is the same.

The intensity of all sessions will be based on the ability and desire of the participants.

What to bring: Rowing is a good workout. Wear workout clothes. Wear tight-fitting shorts (spandex if you dare), as loose-fitting clothes will get caught in the rowing shell's mechanisms. Wear socks that you are not afraid to get dirty - really dirty - and shoes that you can easily slip off.

We recommend bringing bug spray, sunglasses, and a full water bottle to every practice.

Rowing is a water sport. We could row in the rain, so a towel and change of clothes in your car is also a good idea.

Please note: As all classes take place outdoors, we have periodically been forced to cancel individual class periods due to flooding or bad weather. We guarantee that we will hold at least 7 of 8 scheduled class periods - and typically are able to "make up" lost classes, as well.

IMPORTANT: Participants who have not previously participated in a 2016 GRRA class and are not members will need to read, print, and bring this (signed) waiver to the first session! We must have a signed waiver from you in order to place you in a boat!
