After School Rowing
**On days with weather-related school closings, After School Rowing will be cancelled.**
Does your child need an active after school hobby? A way to get all that energy out before coming home? Or, are they looking for a new sport to participate in, or a new challenge?
Crew is a wonderful team building sport that many students take up in high school and continue on through college. Our after school indoor rowing classes provide younger children the unique experience of training and racing on ergs, developing essential form and technique early, and of course having a blast with their friends along the way!
Specially designed for younger rowers, our after school programming emphasizes the basics of proper rowing form. Our children's class instructor, Raphi Tayvah, creates engaging workouts that push students to get to know the erg, and each other. Through live racing software, students can challenge their friends and classmates. Keeping track of key numbers and benchmarks along the way, students learn to challenge themselves to keep improving. Group relay and circuit training exercises encourage students to work cooperatively in teams and support each other through the workout.
Through a collaboration with CRI (Community Rowing, Inc.), we end each series of kid's classes with an opportunity for your children to row on the Charles.
