Adult Rowing Programs

Rockland Rowing's adult programs are for rowers of all athletic backgrounds and ages. We offer a variety of programs to match skill level and competitive interest. Have you never done anything athletic? We welcome you! Looking to win Masters Nationals or Henley Veterans? Join us! All our programs take place in one of the most beautiful locations in Rockland County.

Sign up with friends or meet people from every walk of life as you develop your personal rowing skills in a group setting.

Beginners have two options to kick off their rowing journey: Intro to Rowing or Private Lessons. To arrange for private lessons, contact our Director of Rowing, Melissa Boyd.


Learn to row

Learn to Row is a basic introductory sculling class. It’s perfect for people of all fitness levels and previous athletic experience! Whether you have never rowed before, need a refresher, or perhaps rowed in college but never learned to scull (two-oared rowing), Learn to Row is an easy way to become familiar with rowing terminology and the fundamentals of technique while learning to row in a fun group environment. Upon successful completion of Learn to Row, or if you are already a competent rower, you can progress to our Recreational Adult program or our Competitive Adult Team.


Recreational adult Rowing

Developed for those seeking to row for general fitness, to improve their rowing ability and to enjoy the pleasures of rowing with friends amidst beautiful surroundings. The recreational adult program focuses on continued development of rowing technique. To improve learning and to enhance safety, the program includes coaching oversight at every practice.


competitive adult team

This program caters to those adults seeking a high level of fitness and competition. Races range from local regattas to national and international events. Our competitive adult team has seen success at all levels as both our women and men have medaled at a wide variety of regattas. But this team is also perfect for those just starting to row and looking to compete in their first race. Practices take place daily with rowers attending as schedules permit. Coaching is provided on Saturdays.
