GREAT NEWS! WYRA Registration for the Winter Training Session is Open!

What once started as a small program to get a few rowers through those lazy winter months has now become a huge opportunity for our athletes to continue their training. We offer a complete fitness program designed to prepare rowers for the busy Spring season. This includes erging, strength, cross-fit and endurance training.  Additionally, on warm days we may be able to go out on the water.

When it comes to Rowing the “Winter” season may be the most important. It allows an athlete to focus both physically and mentally on what they need to do to take themselves to a higher level… to face challenges and overcome them. The Winter program focuses on improving rowing technique and efficiency, as well as developing and building all areas of mental and physical fitness.

In addition to the weekday training sessions, WYRA also provides the opportunity for participating athletes to compete in various indoor ergometer competitions held within our region.

Our winter program will begin Monday, November 28th and run through Friday, February 25th.

We are offering two types of winter programs:

5 Days per week: Monday – Friday, 3:30 to 6:00 at a cost of $400.00

3 Days per week: i.e. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 3:30 to 6:00 at a cost of $300.00

As an athletic coach of more than 16 years I have always told my student athletes that "Failing to Prepare is actually Preparing to Fail."

To that end, I encourage all student-athletes who will be rowing in the Spring  to enroll for the 5 day a week program in order to properly prepare for the spring season.

Please note that THERE ARE NO SATURDAY practices.
