The winter is a perfect time to get started in the sport of rowing and this free one day event is a great introduction. You’ll have fun, meet rowers and coaches, and learn about Genesee Waterways Center’s indoor and outdoor rowing programs and other fitness opportunities!

Ethan Curren, our Director of Rowing (and the head coach of the USRowing Junior Women’s Development Camp!), will begin by teaching you to use a rowing machine (“erg”) the correct way. (98% of health club members don’t know how to use them properly. Rowing is chiefly about the legs and core and not so much the arms!

Next, you’ll head to the “tanks,” a specialized area where up to 32 rowers can row with a real oar in water… perfect for learning to row during a Rochester winter! You’ll learn to hold an oar properly, how take strokes and the importance of rowing as a synchronized group.
