Learn to Scull
3 week learn to (row) scull program. The course is designed as an introduction to basic rowing technique. Athletes will learn proper rowing form and become familiar with the Concept2Rowing Ergometer. We will introduce them to the club and prepare them to try rowing on the water in a 1x.
WRA will supply a Concept2 Rowing Ergometer to each participant for the first week. The erg will require a flat space roughly 8′ x 5′ (could be outside). Coaches will connect via computer and the Zoom app, so the machine needs to be in view of the camera. (equipment liability and waiver form required).
Week 1: Three consecutive week days of virtual training.
Monday – Erg Pick-up from WRA Boathouse
Tuesday – Thursday Virtual Practice at 11:00AM
Week 2 & 3: Meet two days a week for two weeks.
Start Dates: 7/13, 7/27, 8/10
What will the class cover?
Each session will be 45 minutes to an hour in length. Coaches will lead the class through a warm-up routine, a discussion of the technical elements of the rowing stroke, and short workout. Participants will practice on the rowing machine and receive feedback as you go.
Our number one concern at WRA is always the health and safety of our team. Ergometers and ancillary program materials will be thoroughly cleaned before delivery. Participants are encouraged to do their own wipe-down of the equipment upon receipt. As the classes will be online, this is a very safe way to begin learning a new sport!
