Mixed Novice/Recreational Team

Contact the captains/coach: novice_sweep@lakemerrittrowingclub.org

The Mixed Novice/Recreational Team is open to anyone who completes one of the beginner sculling or sweep rowing classes at Lake Merritt Rowing Club or has rowed in the past and wants to get back into the sport. Rowers need not attend all practices of the team as we do not compete in races. Our main objectives are to build skills for the newer rowers, bring up skills of past rowers, and help improve fitness for everyone.

The team practices on Monday and Thursday evenings, and on Saturday mornings. Members of the team pay $39/month coaching fees in addition to regular club membership. Guests with previous rowing experience are welcome to come check out the group for two weeks at no charge; please email us to let us know you are coming.

Depending on their personal goals, members of the Novice/Recreational Team may transition to the Mixed Masters Team, Women's Masters or Men's Masters teams when their skills and fitness are consistent with that group’s expectations.
