Competitive Memberships

Competitive Memberships are for rowers who want to compete at local, regional and/or national regattas. Crews are formed by the coaches based on a variety of factors, including a rower's age, weight (lightweight or heavyweight), ability, fitness level, goals, and commitment.  Regatta expenses are extra (for example regatta entry fees).  The Competitive Membership includes both on water and off water training, over 6 hours per week.
