Mobjack Rowing Association is excited to offer one week Intro to Rowing sessions during the months of June and August for all Middle Peninsula youth in the 7th through 12th grades. Sessions will be offered for one week during June 21st through 25th OR August 23rd through 27th from 5 PM to 7 PM at Williams Wharf in Mathews. The cost of the sessions will be $100 and will be run by Head Coach Jon Lothian and Coach Christina Tomcany along with rowers from the Mobjack Rowing team. The sessions will be co-ed and are designed for youth who are completely new to rowing. During the session there will be an overview of boat basics, parts of the rowing cycle and time to get out onto the water and see if you love rowing as much as we do! We will also give out information about how to join the team.
Mobjack has made major investments in its fleet over the past year that have given the team the ability to practice during the pandemic. All Mobjack programs comply with COVID-19 measures imposed by US Rowing as well as mandates put in place by the state of Virginia. We welcome participants of all athletic ability levels who want to learn about an exciting new sport while experiencing the unique pleasures of rowing on the scenic East River.
