What: Open Rowing is a program for rowers with experience beyond an introductory rowing course, such as BCR's Novice class.

The program accommodates a wide range of fitness levels, from those athletes who enjoy a more casual row to those who enjoy training for fitness and competition. Participation in regattas is not required, but opportunities are available for those athletes interested in competition. Coaches may designate certain days for specific types of workouts and may prescribe additional training to assist those who may need further development. Skills, fitness, and personal goals will be considered by the coaches when boating for practices and assembling boats for races. 

Fee:  Open Rowers must purchase an Annual Membership ($200) plus pay the program fee of $700 per year or $125 per month from April - November. These fees are non-refundable and do not include incidental costs for individuals who choose to race, such as uniform and regatta participation fees.
