Active for Life

Our experienced rowers sign up on a monthly basis.  Rowing with this group does not require you to be an olympic athlete, we’ve just found it best to place people in boats with folks who have a similar level of experience.  If you’ve rowed in the past, we’d love you to join. If this is your first time trying the sport, check out our beginner adult class.  

90% of the rowing we do on Lake Higgins is in sculling boats where each rower has two oars, eliminating the need for a coxswain and giving everyone the opportunity to row at each practice.  Sessions are 90-minute in total, allowing time for launching and docking boats while still getting a great workout. Rowers will be on the water for 60 minutes, coached on technique, and given a fun low impact workout.
