Masters Rowing

SRA is pleased to offer several programs, both on and off the water, structured to meet the differing goals and schedules of the adult rowing community. 

The SRA Masters Rowing Programs are open to all Adult Rowers (age 22 and up).  While all rowing skill levels are welcome, if you are a beginner, we recommend either prior participation in the winter training program, attending the “Adult Learn-to-Row” Program in July and August, and/or taking private rowing lessons (contact the SRA Business Manager for details on private instruction)  

Whether you are training to win a national championship, rowing for fitness only, or just enjoy getting on the water occasionally, the SRA Masters Rowing Program is for you!!

Regardless of your goals, our training programs and on-water crews are developed based on your individual rowing skill level.  For those interested, many competitive opportunities exist throughout the year.  Never raced??  Try it – you’ll be hooked!!

Babes and Dudes with Blades

The Babes (and Dudes) with Blades give the beginner and intermediate-level rower instruction and opportunities to row single and double sculling boats in small groups.  The cost of each session is based on the number of participants.  The sessions are usually held weekdays, in the early morning and lunch hour, with one session offered on Saturdays.  Pay only for the sessions you attend.

Masters “Scull Alone” Certification

Any SRA member enrolled in the Master's program may earn his or her “Scull Alone” certification by demonstrating an aptitude for rowing a single, passing a flip test and paying a small additional fee.  This certification allows the rower to use an SRA recreational single without a coach and during the club’s open hours.
