A diverse group of both skill level and ages, the sculling group provides an avenue of instruction and coaching for those who know how to scull and wish to improve their sculling ability as well as fitness while not being constrained to a team’s more rigid schedule. 

The training is geared to improve racing skills as well as overall technical prowess while still keeping things light and fun. The attendance is purely up to the individual as the training plan is posted both at the boathouse and online for anyone who wishes to follow. Most participants attend in singles, both private and club although doubles are not excluded by any means. The only strict criterion is to be prompt to the start of the session. Group members should also have passed a level 1 Captain’s test or have permission of the coach prior to joining coached sessions.

The training is geared to help prep for races with modification available for individuals but there is no set racing calendar for the sculling group. Typically, training leads up to Masters Nationals and the Head of the Charles as well as some local races. However, if you are interested in racing at other regattas, the only obstacle is your desire and willingness to travel.
