General Sculling

For Experienced Rowers

Program Description

The General Sculling program allows a rower to use WRRA sculling equipment on the Cuyahoga River (WRRA owned 1x, 2x, 2- and 4x sculls and oars). This is NOT a coached program. Scullers must be certified as an Independent Sculler, paired with a sculling mentor approved by the WRRA sculling committee or be accompanied by a CRF certified coach. See the Sculling Program Guidelines and the Independent Sculler Certification Process for more details. 

Equipment Use and Reservations:

General Sculling members are responsible for using appropriate WRRA equipment taking into consideration their weight, the weight limits of the shell, the skill level of sculler, and any other restrictions on the use of the shell set by the Board of Directors.

All shells must be reserved through the iCrew reservation program. All shells must be reserved through the iCrew reservation website (app available for iOS and Android) - when you create an account, enter registration code rowcrf, create a userID and password and complete the remainder of the form.

No sculler may reserve a WRRA single, double, pair or quad more than once per week during peak times defined as: Friday until 8:00 am, Saturday and Sunday until 11:00 am. Scullers can sign up for another peak time if a shell is available 24 hours prior to the row. WRRA Sculling Program Outline and Equipment Guidelines for full details. Please be considerate of other rowers and CANCEL your session if you are not able to row.
