Masters Programs & Membership Fees
Master's Sweep and Team Rowing
Fun, fitness and competition! In rowing "Masters" means adults, ages 19 and over. 'Sweep' refers to rowing in boats in which each rower is using one oar. Our sweep team is for men and women, recreational and competitive, beginning and experienced rowers. Boats are set according to skill level and coached at that level
If the physical sport of rowing does not appeal to you, however you are interested in getting out on the water and being part of a wonderful team, we always welcome people who would like to learn the very important role of coxswain. The coxswain is the team member who steers the boat and directs the rowers.
Learn and excel with others on our family-like team

In sculling, each rower has two oars which allows for individuals to row in single-person boats, providing more flexibility and independence.
