New Rower Open House

Curious about the Rockland Rowing Association? Join us for an open house! 

This activity is for those ages 10 and up and is taught by our friendly coaching staff and current rowers. All fitness levels welcome. No experience needed. This rowing opportunity is FREE, exclusive of Rockland Lake State Park's $8 cash toll on weekends after 8am. Drop-ins welcome, but be sure to pre-register if you want to reserve a seat in a boat to try rowing on the water!

Drop-in! Those who drop-in between 9:30-12:15pm will receive a complimentary beverage, get to know the many benefits of rowing at Rockland while mingling with current and prospective rowers and learn the basic body mechanics of the rowing stroke on individual land based rowing machines.

Pre-register! Participants who sign up for a 75' class in advance will additionally have the opportunity to progress to the water where participants will row together with oars in a stable, floating barge or rowing shell. Please fill out the registration form by clicking here and indicate your preferred time slot. Each class is capped at eight participants and it's first come first served. After registering you will receive an email confirming your time slot and event day details. Classes take place at Rockland Lake State Park, lot #6.
