Private Sculling

For rowers with personal sculling equipment

Program Description

The Private Sculling program allows a rower who has paid WRRA Basic (no equipment) membership fees access to the private sculling bay for storage of his/her personal sculling equipment. Rowers are responsible for paying annual private boat rack fees directly to the Cleveland Rowing Foundation. The Private Sculling program does not grant use of WRRA sculling equipment.

A Private Sculling participant must be certified as an Independent Sculler by the WRRA sculling committee and have passed the SQL test before using any personal rowing equipment without an accompanying coach or fellow independent rower on the Cuyahoga River.
