Adult rowers are called "masters." Master's classes meet for ninety minutes when outdoors and seventy-five minutes when indoors. Classes are offered two, three, or four days per week. To help steer rowers into appropriately suited programs, we have designated each class with a skill level: novice, intermediate, or advanced. Upon final enrollment, coaches will use these designations along with the preferences and goals expressed by the rowers to implement training programs tailored to the needs of each individual class. This full-body activity improves strength, endurance and balance without risk of contact injuries or undue torque and pressure on joints.
To enroll in our regular Master's rowing program rowers must be members of the Greenwich Water Club. Please contact Mike Wieneke, Director of Rowing, or Darren Gary, head masters coach, with questions regarding Masters Rowing. If you would like more information regarding membership, please contact Michael Wieneke at 203-661-4033 ext. 236.
Greenwich Crew Coaches will work with rowers during the designated times below. All classes are meant to help each individual increase their fitness level, flexibility, strength and endurance in preparation for the 2019 racing season. The training plan designed by the coaches will build throughout the winter with a focus on competing at CT Indoor Championships on January 27th. Individual as well as team meetings will be held throughout the winter to solidify goals and aspirations for the upcoming year.
