The goal of the program is to make the sport of rowing accessible to
people with a broad range of disabilities and special needs.
The program allows participants to:
- Learn a new sport
- Enjoy the outdoors
- Be part of a team
- Become physically fit
- Participate in a great water activity
Adaptive rowing is sweep rowing (one oar per rower) or sculling (two
oars) for people with physical or intellectual
The basic techniques of adaptive rowing are the same as rowing for the
able-bodied. Participants learn the elements of the stroke: drive,
recovery, catch angle, oar handling, etc. The general learning curve is
comparable to any novice rower and participants experience the same
thrill at discovering our sport.
Sessions are scheduled for Saturday mornings between 10:00am and
noon. If the member completes this program and wishes to join the clubs
an additional fee may be charged.
