Come and row indoors in the beautiful West Point boathouse! This is the next best thing to rowing on the water! You get to go through all the motions that you’d be doing on the water, but without any threat of tipping over (or weather-related inconveniences).
Signup sheets are posted. Please note time slots for each group:
All rowers must bring a signed West Point waiver 2019, once per season. Parents must sign for youth. Also bring your usual rowing gear – re-usable water bottle, etc.
Everyone in the car will be checked for ID when you enter the West Point campus, so please remember to bring it with you, and be prepared to show it at the entrance. If the ID has on it “not for federal purposes” this is NOT a form of ID you can use to get into West Point – you must show a second form of ID (e.g. passport, Social Security card). Please look at the West Point visitor’s page for more information https://www.westpoint.army.mil/visitus.html They may also inspect your trunk, etc, so please allow a few extra minutes for that.
Directions: The best location for Google Maps is Ernst Road in West Point, NY.
From the south entrance to West Point: after completing the ID check at the entrance, make the first right onto Williams St, to go down the hill toward the river. At the bottom of the hill, turn right and cross over the train tracks, then make a quick left to continue north along the river – you’re now on Ernst Road. Go to the end of the road… you’ll see two buildings on your left. The second one is the Caufield Rowing Center.
Parking: Please park only in designated parking spaces – in the small lot in front of the rowing center, or along Ernst Road, past the boathouse building, along the river. There is also parking once you pass over the train tracks – in the Yacht Club area (where the boats are on stands/blocks). Please do not park directly in front of the building in the fire lane (blocking the bay doors), on the sides, or behind the building.
