Adult Recreation

The Adult Rec program will be starting in Fall 2022!

This program is for adults aged 18+ and is designed for adult rowers who want to train recreationally and/or get more experience before entering the competitive stream.  Athletes in this program may choose to participate in regattas and local racing opportunities but training to compete is not the main goal of the program. This program follows the Long-Term-Athlete-Development (LTAD) pathway of “Active for Life”.

Rowers must have completed Learn to Row or have equivalent slide seat rowing experience. The program will offer 3 sessions per week according to the 2022 fall schedule. Holidays include Labour Day, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation,  and Thanksgiving Day.

Should weather conditions not permit on-water activities, we will have erg workouts 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 the fall season program is $220 for new members, and $175 for graduates of the 2022 Adult Learn to Row program. The price breakdown is as follows: 

  • $175 – SJRC rowing program
  • $20 – Rowing Newfoundland (RNL) membership, the NL provincial rowing organization (mandatory annual membership for new members)
  • $25 – Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) membership, the Canadian national rowing organization (mandatory annual membership for new members)
