Winter Erging will begin Dec 1st and run thru April 4th. There will be a break for the holidays from Dec 21- Jan 4. The winter training site is located up the hill from the lower dam on Argo just east of the canoe livery at 412 Longshore Dr.
Two ways to participate...
1. Unlimited sessions for 14 weeks ($250): To sign up for the full season of erging, Purchase here
2. 10 session punch card ($120): To sign up a 10 session punch card, Purchase here
There will be 6 coached sessions each week. With space for 30 rowers, rowers may attend any session. There will be a signup so that coaches can plan.
Practices will be scalable to any level to ensure that all members are getting the most out of winter training. We will have access to sliders that link multiple ergs together. This allows practice at rowing together similar to on-the-water rowing.
There is also a Swingulator, an indoor rowing simulator that integrates the Concept 2 erg with oar handles to create the feeling of rowing on the water in a boat. It will allow us to have two rowers working on rotation and squaring and feathering while also getting a workout in.
The space also features locker rooms, good lighting and ventilation, and mirrors on 3 sides to allow for instant feedback.

Russ encourages all members to keep in contact with the club during winter training. Although you may not want to do the full program, please consider dropping in for a few workouts.
