COVID-19 Response

We hope that you are safe during these uncertain times! For everyone’s health and safety, we’ve had to put a lot of things on hold this past spring. However, during this hiatus we’ve also been working out ways that we could still get you on the water in a safe manner. And we can still get you out in a 1-person boat (or a 2-person boat if from the same household)!

How is that possible? Rowing equipment is rather long. Our shortest 1-person boat is 25’ and the oars you would be using are 9’ long. The closest anyone else can get to you is a very safe distance.

Will I have all my own equipment? Yes, it means that you will have all of your own equipment during a session. This means your own boat, your own oars, and all other equipment you may need for that lesson. You won’t be touching/sharing any equipment with anyone else. We will not be providing any water, snacks, or masks and encourage you to bring your own.

What if I can’t lift/carry my boat all on my own? You won’t need to! A boat can be carried by 2 people on their shoulders at the very ends of the bow/stern. As our shortest 1-person boat is 25’ long, you’ll be at least 24’ away from your coach or one of our volunteers during that time.

What are you doing to minimize cross-contamination? In addition to touching your equipment as little as possible, your coach and our volunteers will set all of your equipment out in individual groups and sanitize it before each session. After a session, it will all be sanitized before it is put away. In order to achieve this, we have medical-grade anti-viral/bacterial wipes, hand sanitizer, nitrile gloves, and are in the process of acquiring a non-contact thermometer.

Thank you again for your patience in the midst of a pandemic! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Youth Rowing Summer Camp

Our weeklong summer camps are designed to introduce rowing to athletes who have never tried the sport before. Rowing is great for athletes who want to try a different sport to cross train, or for those that are still looking for the benefits of a team based sport. After the camps, rowers will be prepared to enter our competitive rowing program as a novice rower and participate in races across the southeast. High school (or late middle school) is the perfect time to start rowing. Youth rowers need to be at least 13 years of age (or younger with coach's permission).

We are offering a limited number of scholarships for youth summer camps based on financial need. For more information contact [email protected].
