Indoor Rowing

Indoor Rowing

When the weather gets cold we move indoors.   Rowing in the tanks and incorporating dry land training is a great way to improve technique, stay in shape, and stay in touch all year round.  All rowers of all experience levels are encouraged to participate in our winter training programs.

We offer practices at the Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center (PIRC) and in the University of Rochester’s Dry Land Training Center:

  • Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center (PIRC):  The PIRC is a 5100 square foot indoor rowing tank facility on the Erie Canal in Pittsford. At the heart of the facility are four tanks with moving water that can accommodate up to 32 rowers. This facility allows rowers to train with their coaches right next to them, where coaches can assess technique and power application in controlled and measurable settings.

  • University of Rochester’s Dry Land Training Center:  This 3000 square foot state-of-the-art training center housed on the river level of the Flats at Brooks Landing, features:  Model D Ergometers, Dynamic Ergometers, Spin bicycles, a Swingulator rowing simulator, Squat racks and along with numerous strength and conditioning pieces of equipment.

2017-2018 Winter Season

Any participant new to rowing should come the first week of the session when we have extra coaches on hand or make individual arrangements by contacting Nicki Brugler and Tyler Steving at   Please note that you should indicate the days/times that you think you will attend.   Should you need to change your attendance, you will not need to notify absent as you do when we are on the water.
