Fall Rowing League (FRL)

Program Description

The 8-week Fall Rowing League (FRL) program is designed for rowers of all abilities, from recreational, performance, and summer rowing leagues, to row together as a team in an eight-person shell.  Teams may consist of rowers with one season of SRL, experienced rowers, or mixed skill levels.  During once-a-week coached practice sessions, rowers will develop boat handling skills and rowing technique.  All FRL rowers receive a Fall Rowing T-shirt.

IMPORTANT: Due to a very limited number of coaches, two (2) FRL teams will be placed with one (1) coach. In an attempt to get as many rowers on the water as possible this fall, qualified coaches will take 2 teams each session. Each coach has been certified to supervise multiple boats and is qualified to coach 2 boats at a time. With registration into this program, each participant consents to this program change.

WRRA will not be providing coxswains for the fall season. If a crew does secure a coxswain, it must be approved by the WRRA Program Director and the crew is responsible for compensation of the coxswain. Coxswains are limited in the Fall season, so teams must be prepared to cox themselves.
