CORTLANDT ROWING 2021 WINTER LITTLE VIKINGS PROGRAM 4th–6th Grade

A coached virtual rowing program for 4th–6th grade youth to learn the basics of the sport of rowing. There’s a place on the team for everyone. Rowing is a sport for everyone! Develops teamwork, fitness, coordination, and leadership skills.


CURRICULUM

  • Learn to row basic stroke using Concept 2 Rowing Machines (ergs) with certified Concept 2 indoor instructor
  • CCRA will loan an erg to each family that needs one as part of the registration fee. To encourage open participation, the rental fee is included in the registration fee.
  • Endurance and brief strength and flexibility training workouts via zoom
  • Learn the parts of the boat and rowing terminology through online activities and games
  • Watch short videos of on-water rowing to develop an understanding of what good rowing looks like in different boat configurations
  • At-home rowing and strengthening workouts provided

Fee $100 per rower for each 4-week session (2 practices per session)

Due to the need for ergs being loaned to families, we need to limit to 12 rowers. As of right now, registration will be closed after 12 rowers and a waiting list will be started in case we have more ergs for Session B.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Winter registration deadline is Wednesday, January 20!


PRACTICE SCHEDULE There will be two 4-week sessions: Session A will run from 1/23-2/17 and Session B will run from 2/20-3/17. As of right now, each Little Viking can only be placed in ONE session due to limited ergs. 

  • Two Zoom sessions weekly:
    • 30 minute row and stretch on Wednesdays from 5:30-6pm
    • 60 minute row and stretch followed by an activity on Saturdays from 11am-noon

PARENT/GUARDIAN Intro to Rowing class: On the first Saturday of each session, there will be a parent/guardian 20-minute Intro to Rowing class afterward so that YOU can get on the erg and give it a try safely. Rowing is a fantastic full-body workout, low-impact on joints, and we’d love to support you if you want to give it a try. Plus this will help you monitor to make sure your rower is using the erg correctly and safely while it is in your home!
