Adult Rowing

Adult Rowing

The goal of the Adult Rowing program at EBR is to offer opportunities for all levels of rowing for both men and women over age 21. We are always interested in expanding our team and welcoming new members. Whether you are looking to improve your fitness, enhance your rowing technique, compete in regattas or simply interested in enjoying time on the water, East Bay Rowing is the place for you!

Our programs run on a seasonal schedule with offerings for brand new rowers, recreational rowers and competitive rowers. Rowers looking to compete have the opportunity to row in a variety of regattas each season. During our spring, summer and fall programs, we row on the Barrington River from Walker Farm in Barrington, RI. During the winter months, we offer group training indoors at EBR’s training facility in Warren, RI.  

These programs already sound fantastic, no?  But that’s not all East Bay Rowing has to offer our adult rowers!  Building camaraderie is important to us. Having fun together on and off the water is important to us.  Through regularly scheduled, low key socials and fun events we strive to make EBR a home for everyone.

Adults, don’t let the kids show you up with their stylish EBR gear. Order our adult EBR gear here. (Order by April 1. Sample sizes at Cutler.)

Winter Rowing  – Indoor Erg

In the winter EBR rowers head indoors to train on the ergometers (ergs). The erg is a fantastic machine that works every part of your body with no impact. Look up the definition of an erg on Urban Dictionary and you’ll giggle. We play fun music and get a terrific low impact, full body workout. Bonus – it is really great training for on-water racing. We train from November thorough March. We train to compete for the Crash B’s in Boston.  Check it out! You WILL get a great workout. EBR’s Indoor facility is located at 84 Cutler Street Warren RI.

Indoor Rowing Options:
Open Gym (come in and follow the workout of the day, a coach will be there to assist): Tues/Thurs 6am – 8am
