Saturday Teen Indoor Rowing



2017-2018 Teen Indoor Para Rowing


WHAT:           A weekly indoor Para rowing fitness/training program.

WHEN:           Saturdays, 2:00-3:30 pm; Jan 6-Feb 17.

WHERE:         Community Rowing – 20 Nonantum Road, Brighton (at Newton/Boston line).

WHO:             Teens with Paralympic eligible impairments (visual and/or physical).

WHY:              Fitness, friends, fun.


Join Community Rowing and Adaptive Sports New England for this fun winter training program. You will learn to row on CRI’s indoor rowing ergometers; you will train with a team of teenage Para rowers; and if you’re so inclined, you can compete in the CRASH-B indoor rowing championships held at BU February 25. Whether you have never rowed before or you are an experienced oarsman/oarswoman, this program will prepare you to be rowing on the Charles River by the time spring rolls around. Or this can just be cross-training for your other sports.



The program is open to teenagers who have a visual impairment or a physical/mobility impairment that make them eligible for Para rowing competition. Participants must be healthy enough for vigorous exertion; be able to securely hold an oar in at least one hand; and be able to receive and apply coaching in a group setting. Each rower will be on his/her own ergometer, so each rower can progress at his/her own rate. If you have questions about eligibility or fit, please contact Joe or Jenny at the numbers/e-mails below.



We understand that not every participant will be able to commit to every Saturday for the entire winter. Because each rower is on his/her own erg, no absolute commitment is required, though

  • Training Season Jan 6-Feb 17   $100 for the season
  • Coaching at CRASH-B competition Feb 25             Included (entry fee separate)

Financial assistance is available upon request. No charge for Boston Public Schools students.
