LEVEL II SCULLING 
Take the next step in our Level II Course
Sculling for Intermediate Rowers - Youth (12 years+) to Adults  

Level II Sculling is for the individual who has completed a Learn to Row: Intermediate level sculling program or has previous sculling/sweep rowing experience. This class will take you to the next level of rowing or provide a refresher course for those who have been out of rowing for a while. Scullers will be a regular (narrower) width boat and may be part of a team boat such as a Quad or a Double. The goal of the class is to help you improve your rowing skills and be given simple workouts to execute. We offer four 1.20 hour classes.

Passing a flip test is mandatory and will be part of the beginning of the class. If you passed a flip test at the end of your LTR class, that will be counted. Coaches will determine a participant's class readiness at their discretion.

 A flip test shows your ability to flip a single while in it and then get back into the boat without assistance. A coach will supervise this test. If you are unable to complete getting back into the single, you will be required to wear a waist style life preserver. It looks like a fanny pack and can be worn while rowing.

Classes meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays

Session Dates: Limited to 4 rowers per class; each class is 80 minutes long.

Each class will start with a daily COVID Check-In with the Coach 10 minutes before the start of your class. There will be an additional 20 minutes at the end of a session to allow participants to sanitize oars and put their  boats away. Once this is done, participants must vacate the launch site immediately and proceed to the pick-up area. This will help limit the number of people gathering at the staging site.

PARKING RESTRICTIONS

PARKING AT POND
  • Absolutely NO parking at the beach for summer rowing for Harvard residents without parking stickers and for non-residents. Please use the lot at the top of the hill (below the library lot). It’s a 5’ walk to the pond on the path to the right of the road.
  • Harvard residents WITH beach stickers who are only participating in the rowing program are asked to park in the lot at the top of the hill (not library) as well. This is to ensure parking at the beach for those folks taking programs offered by the town. BHRA requests your cooperation.
