The highest level of technical proficiency and fitness. This group trains to compete and requres a minimum score on both a 2k and 6k erg test. Level A rowers are physically tested and boating selections are made based on creating the most efficient and fastest possible medal-winning combinations for the Lions Rowing Club. This group has a strict commitment level, strong attendance expectations, and rowers sometimes may be asked to complete workouts outside of their scheduled morning row. Level A rowers may train in any time slot with any group-although training with the Level A group is open by invitation only. Contact our director (link) if you are interested in joining this advanced group.
A high level of both technique and fitness work which prepares rowers for the best possible efficiency in moving the boat fast on the water. Level B rowers may or may not choose to compete, but will be trained the same either way. Many recreational rowers enjoy this group because of the high expectations on the water without the pressure to race.
Often novice rowers and others who may have been away from the sport for many years. Level C rowers train with a technical focus on Mondays and Wednesdays, they then row with the B group on Fridays to promote application of the lessons, and crossover into the Level B group. Level C rowers who have been rowing for less than one year may compete in the "novice" category at races.
Your personal rowing level is determined by our coaching staff and is based on performance on the water and performance on the Concept 2 ergometer, as well as your training and competition goals.
