The following programs have been modified. Click HERE for a summary of current offerings.

The Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club offers four coached adult programs and several individual options during our on-the-water season which runs from (tbd) until November 8th, 2020.  All programs operate from the historic Rockrimmon Boathouse on the Connecticut River in Springfield, MA.

Programs are open to all age groups, athletic backgrounds and levels of experience. Whether you are a college rower or have never rowed before, we have a program for you. Many of our rowers do not race but participate in our practices for exercise, socialization, and to enjoy the great outdoors on the Connecticut river. Others train on a regular basis and compete in regattas around the region. Whether you are interested in collegiate training, participating in regattas, or recreational rowing, we’re committed to connecting you to the river and finding a program that works best with your schedule and goals.

If you are interested in learning how to row with a group or are an experienced rower looking for a coached program, please sign up for one of these four options:

1. Adult Beginner Rowing, for beginners or those who want a "refresher"
2. Adult Rowing, for the recreational rower or intermediate rower with the option to race 
3. Adult Advanced Rowing, for the competitive rower who can train outside of practice and race 
4. Collegiate Racing and Training Program, a value-priced program for collegiate athletes including recent high school graduates

If you would like a more flexible, individual experience, we offer

1. Private sculling lessons (beginner to advanced, starting in June)

2. Club boat sculling (for proficient scullers who do not own a boat, with prerequisites)

3. Private boat rack rental and boathouse use (also available for kayakers)
