Winter Training 2016-17

We encourage and welcome all AARC members to participate in Winter training! It's a great way to stay connected with the team, stay fit, improve strength and technique and be ready to row in the Spring.
This year, we are offering 3 separate components for winter training and there are a few changes to how we are doing things from past years. We are trying to better align costs with usage of these programs and to lower costs to members wherever possible.  Please read carefully and send any questions you have to
Organized Winter Training is from Dec-March. There will be three sessions offered for the Winter Training season. 
TerraFirma currently has 13 ergs. Because of the limited number of spaces, we will use a sign up genius to determine session availability. If you want to drop in, you can consult the sign up genius to see if there are spaces available. Please Do NOT sign up unless you will definitely be there!

Workouts will consist of one steady state workout uncoached and two coached practices, working on AT and speed work. If you cannot make it to one of your session practices, you are free to drop in based on availability of ergs or organize on your own outside practices. There will be holiday periods without coached sessions also, exact dates tbd.

Strength Training

A very popular program last year -- Strength Training for Rowers with Advantage Strength and Conditioning.



This is a special class held for AARC members. If you feel you can't make it to all classes, you may drop in also.
  • We will continue to offer Yoga for Rowers - something we all should be doing more of!
  • The program is available November 2016 through March 17
  • Sunday morning at 9am 



*AARC Membership

Participants in Winter programs need to be either Full or Winter members of AARC. Members may also bring guests as drop-in participants to particular sessions.


**Drop ins:

All programs can allow for drop ins (space permitting) but these need to be recorded on a sign-in sheet which is used to bill accounts periodically. If you bring a drop-in guest, make sure your name is on the sign-in sheet so your account can be billed.

AARC endeavors to make rowing accessible to the broad community.  Scholarships are available to those with financial need to support participation.  
AARC is a 501(c)3 organization.  Donations made to AARC may be eligible for tax deduction.  Please check with your tax consultant.
