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 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.

Adaptive rowing is sweep rowing (one oar per rower) or sculling (two oars) for people with physical or intellectual disabilities/limitations.
