Adult (Masters) Rowing

It’s easy to get started as an HRA Masters Rower!

Rowing is one of the BEST overall workouts for older athletes – low impact, good cardiovascular and strength training. However, rowing isn’t like other sports – there’s a lot to learn which makes engaging your brain just as important as engaging your core! If you’re ready to try something new…something that you may possibly fall in love with and want to continue for the rest of your life…then click here to sign up!

Dates: Tuesday (10/12), Thursday (10/14), Friday (10/15) – 6:00 – 7:30PM (actual times may slightly vary); Saturday (10/16) – 6:30 – 8:30AM.

What to wear: athletic gear that fits well – nothing too baggy or too tight – you must be able to move! Athletic shoes are a must as are socks, a filled water bottle, a ball cap or sunglasses, and sunscreen!

Cost: $150 for the four sessions. For more information on the rowing experience in general, continue reading!

About the Adult (Masters) Program

The Masters rowing program at HRA is constructed to meet the varied needs of its members under one umbrella. We offer more intensive training for rowers who want to compete at the local, regional or national level and less-stressful workouts for those who want to row for recreation. HRA also offers a novice rowing program for individuals just coming out of an introduction to rowing class or for rowers returning to the sport after a lengthy absence.

MASTERS MEMBERSHIP: $660 annual membership (when paid in-full). Monthly payments ($60) are easily arranged and require a 12-month commitment. New rowers have a 3-month grace period (membership may be cancelled within the first three months for someone new to the club/sport). Anyone 21 years of age or older may participate as a Masters Rower.

FAMILY MEMBERSHIP: 30% discount ($562) on annual membership dues for each additional Masters Rower living at the same physical address (first Masters Rower @ $660; additional Masters Rowers residing at the same address less 30% each)

SEASONAL MEMBERSHIP: $110 per month, up to five months maximum.

ANNUAL STORAGE FEES: $200 per single; $250 per double. You must be an annual member to store a rowing shell provided space is available. HRA is not responsible for any personal boats or belongings on premises. Storage is at the owner’s own risk and offered on a space-available basis only. Owners of boats stored but not rowed for extended periods of time may be asked to remove their boat (any remaining months in the annual storage agreement would be pro-rated and pro-rated monies returned).

SUPPORTING MEMBER: Anyone can be a supporting member! Supporting members are kept up-to-date on boathouse happenings but do not have rowing privileges. Supporting members pay a nominal annual fee (noted on membership form). To keep expenses down, Supporting Members are asked to pay annual donations by check (payable to HRA). Thank you!
