MRC Alumni and Collegiate Rowing

Winter 2017-18

Each winter we offer indoor training opportunities to collegiate rowers and junior team alumni. These are open gym hours at our indoor facility. During these hours, athletes are welcome to use our rowing machines and weight equipment. Open gym hours will exist before, during, and after Junior team practices. We suggest that you attempt to avoid working out during the Junior team practices as much as possible - equipment is heavily used during that time and you are not guaranteed an erg or weight space.

When you arrive to our facility you are required to sign in each day. The book is on the table next to the door. This will help us keep track of who is coming and going. Sign out upon departing.

Please read the schedule to see when opportunities will be available. You must fill out the form below in order to have access to the equipment and our facilities. Thank you!
