Rowing is a year round sport which mostly follows the academic year. Our year-long season is divided into three main parts: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each season has a different style of race and training is designed to reflect that. Our athletes are expected to row all three seasons. Training consists of both land and water training.

Water training is held at Maclay Gardens State Park (3540 Thomasville Road, Tallahassee, FL 32309) - A park pass will be provided upon registration and is is required for entry for practice every day.

Land training is held at Forest Meadows Tennis Complex (4750 North Meridian Road, Tallahassee, FL 32312) in the gray building to the right upon entry.

New rowers are accepted up until Spring Break.
