Mid Morning Masters Team
Mid Morning Masters with their Bronze Medals at Head of the Ohio 2016
This team is meant for adults who are looking to learn the sport of rowing in a team environment. This team will be comprised of a diverse group of men and women of all ages (21+) and backgrounds and will meet two days a week. The team is perfect for those who have begun in our Winter Rowing League. In addition, we welcome people who have some rowing experience but would like to improve their technical skills in a structured environment. The team is currently practicing so please come and check it out! Contact info is below.
The practice schedule while the team is on the water is:
Water Practices ( April – November)
The team meets at Washington’s Landing for all practices.
Tuesday morning at 9:30-11:30 am
Thursday morning at 9:30-11:30 am
We expect to be on the water through November. The team will continue to practice through the winter-we just move inside. Team members will also be given a chance to move to either the Evening Mixed Masters or Men’s or Women’s Masters teams at the end of the water season.
Winter Practices (December – March) – same day and time, but at the Millvale Training Center for practice in the indoor tanks and on the ergs.
Other Info about the Team
The team will decide together whether they travel to any races and compete. The focus of the team will be to learn the sport properly and therefore be able to jump to the more experienced teams that much more easily. Rowing two times per week will allow team members to progress as rowers rather quickly. Practices are not mandatory. Do remember that the more often you are able to attend, the faster your skills will develop for yourself and the team! In addition to rowing instruction, there will be a strong focus on water safety and equipment handling.
New members are welcome to join our workouts on a trial basis. In addition to the fees outlined, team members will pay separately for personal travel expenses and entry and related fees for any regattas in which they choose to participate. Everyone will be allowed three to four practices before they have to commit with any memberships. Once an individual decides to join the team, they must pay Three Rivers Rowing membership fees.
If you choose to join, you will become a member of one of the top boathouses in the nation. Three Rivers Rowing won the first annual USRowing Club of the Year Award in 2002, 2010 and again in 2013 and owns not just one, but TWO of the nicest community boathouses in the nation.
