The Masters Competitive program pushes adult athletes to a higher level of performance by focusing on cardio endurance, precise technique, and race preparation. Rowers compete in various regattas throughout the state and often regionally as well. Members of our team compete in sweep and sculling boats, from 1x to 8+, so there is a place for everyone.
Masters team members are expected to be at all practices, be on time, and give 100% effort both at practice and at regattas.
No tryouts are held, but team members regularly time test on the ergs. Seat races will be done for all regattas. (Do not be scared of seat racing – it is to track personal progress as well as determine seat position.) Swift blades and strong drives bring home medals!
