"We are a non profit sweep rowing club based in Middletown, CT. We offer rowing programs on the CT River. Programs are administered through Middletown Recreation. Programs for 13+, novice to experienced, recreational to competitive. Come join us!"


GENERAL INFORMATION  FOR ALL ON-WATER CLASSES: Novice rowing classes are generally only offered in the summer months (June/July and sometimes August). On-water classes are open to people ages 13-99 during the summer sessions. 13-yr olds must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to row. All rowers must sign off that they are a strong swimmer. It’s crucial to not miss the first few classes because safety and basics are covered. Fall sessions are open to 18+. (Younger rowers would need special permission.) Experienced classes are offered from May through mid-October.

All programs will include some ergometer (rowing machine) work which is especially important to help proper form. Rowers will sporadically rotate in the motorboat as an observer. We often row in light rain, but will erg or try to reschedule when there are high winds, downpour or lightning. Rescheduling could include an alternative evening or a weekend morning.

Wear tight-fitting shorts or leggings (loose clothing can get caught in seat tracks), socks, sneakers or secure water shoes. A hat, sunscreen, sunglasses are recommended along with a reusable water bottle. Bring, or have in your car, a yoga mat and sneakers for after-row stretching or days when we erg.

Teaches you the basics you need to get out on the water in an eight-person sweep boat. For the first few classes, you learn rowing basics and terms on land using the rowing machines (ergometers). Some basic fitness and stretching will be part of each class. Ergs will be used sporadically throughout and occasional rotation in the motorboat will happen.
