Many Options for Adults
Year Round Teams & Programs
Casitas Rowing has several ways for adults become involved in rowing. For those getting started, our Level One Masters team offers helpful coaching and fitness training. Our Level Two team is more challenging and trains for local and regional competitions. We also have an Independent Sculler program for people who want to participate at their own pace and on their own schedule. For all programs, club members can purchase private lessons if they want additional one-on-one instruction with a coach.
Adult Rowing – Level One
Year-Round Team / 1 Day per Week
This team is where we start all team rowers and is typically the next step after a Learn to Row day or class. This coached program focuses on technical skills, increased fitness, water safety, equipment handling, teamwork, and other aspects of being on a rowing team. This is a co-ed program. The Level One team focuses on training and development but does not travel to races.
Level One practices take place on Saturday mornings. Training is often in sweep boats (one oar per rower) but sculling (two oars) is also learned. Once team members have the skills to row on their own and are cleared by the director, they can also go out during the week in one or two person boats for additional training if they want.
Year-Round Team / 1-3 Days per Week
Requirements: The Level Two team requires previous rowing experience and acceptance by the coach. This program is for our more proficient team members who are ready for competitive training and racing and are moving up from our Level One program. This program is co-ed. The workouts are challenging and require more proficiency in both technique and fitness.
This team offers three practices per week. Some team members can make it to all three practices, others participate as their schedule permits.
Year-Round / 1-7 Days per Week
Once people have taken lessons and are proficient enough to row on their own, they can become club members and join our independent rowing program. This program allows use of club equipment for rowing on your own or with other scullers. Boats can be reserved using an online calendar any mornings that they are not in use for team practice.
