2 Day Sculling Clinic

Sunday (3 hr) 7 – 10 AM & Monday 6-8 PM (2 hours)
Dates: June 28-29, July 12-13, July 26-27
Cost: $125
Max 4 participants

This 2 day clinic is designed for previous FVRA program participants to get a refresher on, or introduction to, sculling technique with the goal of providing them the confidence to continue in a single as part of FVRAs current 1x sculling membership. All participants will be rowing in a tub 1x or larger single to allow them a stable base in which to work on their sculling technique. Pre-session homework will be sent the week before the session to allow all participants to have a general technique overview before getting out on the water. The clinic will be run by 2 FVRA coaches as well as several support volunteer rowers who will help to guide you while out on the water.

Prerequisites for this clinic are,
  • Previous participation in an FVRA program (within the last year)
  • A current USRowing Waiver
  • The ability to swim
  • Masks required during on land instruction
