  The training program will include:

Exercises are supervised by trained rowing coaches and will include
  • Medicine ball

Our own indoor rowing competition, the TCYR ERG SPRINTS.  These will be available at an additional cost, announced closer to this indoor race day. This year will be virtual.

All participants must be prepared to work hard and are expected to attend regularly to enable safe and productive training.

ALL WINTER PARTICIPANTS, whether past members or new to TCYR, must pay their 2021 Annual Dues Membership Fee AND the Season Program Fee to participate.  Those who complete registration for BOTH will be considered members for 2021 and will receive priority.
