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.
