Several Rowing Options

We offer our members several rowing options to suit the needs of different levels of experience and fitness. Members with no experience can join the club once they’ve taken a Learn to Row class and attend a member orientation. From there, they can row recreationally in either On-Demand or our Conditioning & Technique Rowing (CTR) group. In these programs, members are required to fulfill at least Level 1 checkout requirements to row on their own. Before advancing to a competitive team, all members must be checked out to at least Level 2. For members wishing to row competitively, we have two teams: A Team and R Team. Below you’ll find a visual representation of how our members progress through our coached programs.

Atlanta Rowing Club members with their own rowing equipment (i.e., oars and shells) can pay for boat storage.
