What is an Open Rower ?An Open Rower is someone ages 19-30 years who has the competencies of an Advanced level adult rower. Open Rowers are often looking for other similarly-aged competitive athletes to train with. Open Rowers can participate in adult classes, junior practices or junior competitive camps with approval from Coach Laci or Coach Kristina.
What is a "Coached Rowing Class" versus a "Coach Led Class (CLC)"? All classes are coached classes unless noted as CLC (Coached Led
Class). During CLC classes the coach will still create training for
class, but will also row along side participants. CLC classes will focus
on the workout, not technique. CLC classes are usually designated for smaller classes.
What is an All Levels Rowing Class? This class includes all Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced adult rowers. The amount of people registered for each skill level will determine how many coaches will be available onsite to coach.
What is the Strength & Injury Prevention Class? Instructed by Director of Rowing Kristina Landefeld-Maurer, this class if for adult and youth rowers who are looking for strength and tools for injury prevention. Growing bodies and adults who spend their workdays hovered over a computer are at particular risk. We will mix high intensity erging in as well to work on speed.
Although rowing had been part of our family, I had never been a participant until recently. I had wanted to be more active for health and balance in my life and rowing at SCRC met important criteria. It is outdoors, and a chance to be on the river and enjoy its beauty. It is held at a regular time, so I could plan it. It is done in a group of like minded people that are fun to get to know It is a coached class so a chance to improve every time you row. Recreational, fitness, and competitive rowers are all part of the same club and are all welcome.
