Adult Masters

Adult Masters is a competitive-based program for adults aged 19+ who want to train to compete at regattas. An emphasis is placed on physical conditioning, high performance rowing, and racing technique. Previous racing experience is desirable for this program, but it is not essential. Training partners or crews are welcome to join this program and will be accommodated when possible, but rowers should be aware that boat combinations are at the discretion of the coaches. This program follows the “Learn to Compete” and “Train to Compete” pathways, adjusted to meet athletes’ individual skill levels and level of competition experience.

Rowers must have completed Learn to Row or equivalent. The program will offer 5 sessions per week according to the 2022 summer schedule. Holidays include Canada Day, the evening before the Royal St. John’s Fixed Seat Regatta and Regatta Day in August.

Should weather conditions not permit on-water activities, we will have off-water workouts at the club’s erg facility (located at Max Fitness on New Cove Road).  A swim test is not required for adult rowing programs; however, upon joining you must confirm that you can swim well and will be comfortable if your boat flips and you find yourself in the water.

The fee for full season program is $495. The price breakdown is as follows:

  • $450 – SJRC rowing program
  • $20 – Rowing Newfoundland (RNL) membership, the NL provincial rowing organization (mandatory annual membership)
  • $25 – Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) membership, the Canadian national rowing organization (mandatory annual membership)
