Private Sculling

For rowers with personal sculling equipment

Program Description

The Private Sculling program allows a rower who stores their boat in a Cleveland Rowing Foundation (CRF) facility, membership in WRRA, fulfilling their obligation to be participants in good standing of a Member Organization. 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.

Sculling Certification:

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. For information on the Independent Sculler Certification process refer to the WRRA Independent Sculler Certification Process
