Masters Rowing Teams

Participation on a BIAC Masters (Adult) Team requires club membership and payment of equipment fees. These teams practice both sweep and sculling, with focus on team boats (2-/x, 4x, 4+, 8+). The Masters Teams are separated into Novice, Intermediate, Competitive and Daylight Crew. The Novice, Intermediate and Competitive Teams each offer three sessions per week and require an additional $80 monthly fee for participation. Daylight Crew payments are on a per-session basis ($28). Each team offers opportunities to build on your current competencies and advance based on your goals and interests.
