The Recreational Rowing Team is a coed team for experienced rowers, focusing on fitness, technique, and enjoying the sport of rowing. The team is for those who enjoy rowing in team boats but do not wish to train and compete at the highest-level of the competitive team.
Team members have the option to race at the Chicago Sprints in July and at local head races in the fall, but it is optional and more for the experience than winning the race.
The rec team practices three times a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 8:00 a.m. Practices are held at either the lagoon boathouse or the Eleanor Boathouse on the south branch of the Chicago river.
