About Masters

 

WBC has a growing Masters program that operates year round with rowing sessions daily. Masters are adult rowers with various levels of experience. We welcome alumni from the Junior Program and their parents, college students, former collegiate rowers, and any adults that enjoy being active on the water. However, no experience is necessary to join us. We offer Learn to Row classes (See Below - Classes are $145 for all six sessions) that will prepare you to participate in the club. The class is a prerequisite for joining the club to ensure all safety precautions are met. If you already know how to row, you will just need to discuss your experience with the coach who will determine whether or not you would need to attend the Learn to Row classes.

 

As a member you can pursue further development of your rowing skills as well as move on to a performance group to increase the workout intensity and the opportunity to race in Regattas.

Rowing has been proven beneficial for all ages because of the cardiovascular workout with low-impact for your joints. It provides a workout for your whole body, improving muscle tone, and increasing lean body mass.

Masters row at Chickahominy Riverfront Park and offer various levels of membership, depending on whether you want competitive rowing, sculling, or simply relaxed fitness. Race opportunities are available, however you are not required to race to be a member of the club.
