Cleveland's Premier Adult Rowing Club

Summer Rowing League

For New and Experienced Rowers

Program Description

The 15-week Summer Rowing League (SRL) program is designed for rowers of all abilities, from beginners to seasoned veterans, to row together as a team in an eight-person shell.  Teams may consist of new rowers (novice crews), experienced rowers, or mixed skill levels.  During once a week coached practice sessions, rowers will develop boat handling skills and rowing technique, as well as prepare for racing in a mid-season and end-of-season regatta on the Cuyahoga River.  All SRL rowers receive an SRL T-shirt and enjoy an end of season cook out at the last regatta.

Experienced crews who choose to use a dedicated coxswain will be responsible for compensation of the coxswain. The WRRA Club Manager will work with teams to assign WRRA approved coxswains for teams that would like a coxswain, but do not have one lined up prior to the beginning of the season.  This is contingent on coxswain availability.

Novice boats will be provided coxswains for the first three (3) weeks of practice of the SRL season.  After that, Novice teams will be required to cox themselves or secure a coxswain. 

Novice crews will spend the first week in orientation to review equipment, the boathouse, and additional erg time.
