Community Rowing
The Masters part of our club is made up of mostly scullers
(singles and doubles rowers),
but we do get in larger boats to train for regattas, train new rowers and for winter rowing.  The club has "Community Row" every Saturday morning at 10:00 am, on Sundays at 6:30 pm and Wednesdays at 6:30 pm (note time adjustment for the hot weather).  Those times would be great times to get team boats together and maybe even prepare for some upcoming regattas.  They are great fun, and you don't have to win to enjoy it!  If you are interested in rowing in a team boat, for recreation or for competition,
please contact George Park by clicking here.



Youth Rowing 

Registration for the 2014 Fall Season is open for returning rowers.  Registration for new rowers will open on July 21.  Orientation and swim test for new rowers will be at 2:00 at the boathouse.  After the orientation, we will adjourn to the Drew Wellness Center on Harden Street (actually 2101 Walker Solomon Way, Columbia SC 29203) at 3:00 pm for the required swim test which includes swimming 150 meters without stopping, treading water for 10 minutes and putting on a life jacket while treading water.  

Collegiate Crew

Carolina Crew Club at USC has been conducting land training during the last academic year.  They have had two outings on the Broad River, and we look forward to their rowing regularly on the river in the fall.  Perhaps we'll even have some of the graduates from our Youth Rowing on the team.   Here is the Link to their Facebook Page, if you are interested, just send a request to join!

Northern Colleges and High Schools Visit for Training

Vassar and SUNY-Stoneybrook were in Columbia for spring training during the week of March 16-22.  They had a great stay, and we look forward to having them back next year.
