DC Strokes 2022-2023 Winter Training
2022-2023 Winter Training Program
Join DC Strokes to keep in rowing shape for the 2023 water rowing season with a 14-week winter training plan developed by Coaches Chantel and Nhat. This program focuses on three weekly erg sessions with the primary goal of building sustained rowing fitness, erg technique, how erging translates to on-water rowing, and building pressure to increase meters per stroke.
Mondays 6:00 - 7:25 PM
Thursdays 7:30 - 8:55 PM
Sundays 9:30 AM - 11 AM
* Some sessions may be adjusted due to holidays or coaches discretion.
It depends! The goal of this winter training is to help support rowers in our off-water season with sustaining and improving their fitness and technique. With that goal as the guiding principle, we want to keep this training affordable, we're going to be very transparent with you; the more folks who sign up for winter training, the cheaper it will be. So, here’s the deal:
Program fee to participants:
$280 per person for the whole winter training program! If you join late, your fee will be prorated.
Monday December 5th
First day of winter training!
Sunday December 11th
Immediately following winter training, DCSRC members are strongly encouraged to stay for ACBA erg maintenance day. Many hands make light of the work, and this will help prevent having broken equipment that might impact our winter training.
Sunday December 18th
Registration cut off for determining final winter training program fees.
Sunday January 1
DCSRC will join with Capital Rowing Club (CRC) to sign up for the ACBA New Year Erg Half Marathon. Typically two shifts offered, an early and a slightly later shift, and a great way to kick off the January Team Erg Challenge and lay down at least 21,097 meters on the very first day of the year.
