Membership

Our club is member-owned. Club membership covers an entire year; both on-the-water rowing and the option of off-season training. Our rowing season goes from Dock In (March 23) to Dock Out (November 9), so there are plenty of opportunities to experience the beauty of The Grand River. For our 2024 season, our Recreational Team will be rowing Monday and Wednesday nights (6-8pm) and Saturday mornings (8-10am). All levels of rowers are welcome, but new rowers must complete a level 100 LTR class. Membership benefits include coached rowing sessions, use of club equipment, social events, and hanging with the best group of crazies this side of the Big Lake.
