Adult Program

HRRA Adult Program

Our goal for our adult teams is threefold: to create strong racing teams, to create pride in our rowing community, and to expand access to a variety of rowing experiences.  We have been working successfully towards those goals since 1998.  In some cases, members of our teams have been rowing together for all of those 20 years, and to keep our adult athletes engaged and progressing, we provide a variety of programs to accommodate varied skill levels and goals.

In addition to providing the most extensive and thorough learn-to-row curriculum for adults within the region, we provide an Adult Recreational Team that remains flexible to life’s demands while still providing skill building and fitness. Our Adult Racing Team is focused on racing and becoming competitive on a wider scale, but coaches and teammates also retain the flexibility needed to help each other maintain their personal lives along with the rigors of training. Social activities and common practice sessions help maintain a connection between the adult teams, creating a friendly and welcoming environment for all levels of adult rowers.
