Indoor Rowing on Ergs

As part of the phased re-opening of the boathouse operations in the current COVID-19 environment, the Cleveland Rowing Foundation is now opening the facilities to erg use subject to safety guidelines and use restrictions. If you have questions regarding this program, please contact

Open Erg Sessions:

  • June 27 - August 31, 2022
  • Monday - Friday; 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Saturday; 6:30 AM to 9:30 AM

All current COVID-19 requirements will be enforced:

  • To comply with social distancing guidelines, there will be 3 erging zones: One inside the boathouse and two outside (based on demand). Inside ergs will be separated by 12 feet and outside by 6 feet based on USRowing guidelines. CRF will set up the ergs daily to ensure compliance with distance requirements.
  • Inside use will be limited to groups of 10 or less.
  • Participants will be required to clean the erg both before and after each use. All ergs will be additionally sanitized each night by CRF staff.


  • A limited number of ergs will be available, and all are first come - first served. There will be no sign-up for these sessions.
  • If using an outside erg, participants will be expected to bring the erg back into the building after his/ her session.
  • Signage in the boathouse will outline the Phase II requirements and additional signage will be present in each erg zone.
  • Daily erg workouts will be posted on the erg room whiteboard for any wishing guidance. Usage of the erg facility will be coordinated by the CRF staff, coaches, and volunteers. WRRA is not managing these open erg sessions.
  • If a group of WRRA members is interested in a coached erg session, please contact to see if that can be scheduled. An additional fee will apply for coaching.
