Registration is Open for Youth Winter Indoor Rowing

Watching movies makes for a fun way to train in a group on the rowing machines, known as ‘ergs.’

Jamestown, NC – High Point Rowing Club is excited to announce a new season of Youth Indoor Rowing for high school and middle school students at its Jamestown Indoor Rowing Studio. The purpose of the Youth Indoor Rowing is to foster healthy living in a fun team environment for students through the wonderful sport of rowing. Students will be be prepared for the challenges of the spring boat racing season after completing the indoor rowing program.

No prior rowing experience is necessary. 

“Indoor rowing has taken off as the new spinning and we have received lots of interest from students wishing to try out this sport,” says club organizer Gene Kininmonth. “Rowing is low-impact making it safe from the types of head and knee injuries we see in other sports.”

In addition to indoor rowing, students will also participate in strength and conditioning as well as a boxing fitness regimen (which does not involve students hitting each other).

Format: Participants with no prior experience will start with a learn-to-row format on the Concept2 rowing machines.  As technique and stamina improve, a more competitive format will be adopted.

Dates and Times: Each day, Monday – Friday from 4:30pm – 6:00pm (students travelling from further away can arrive later) and at 9am on Saturday mornings. Students are not expected to be at every session. The season begins on Monday November 13 and will go through to February 24, 2018

Attire: Tee shirt, form-fitting shorts, and running shoes are usual attire. Loose fitting shorts will likely catch in the “slide” (where the rowing seat moves back and forth on the rower). Bring a water bottle too!

Address: 124-C Wade Street, Jamestown, North Carolina.

Cost: $275 per participant. No partial refund for missed sessions or weather related cancellations.
