Masters

Rowing is a lifelong sport. GAR offers an Adult Rowing Program called GAR Masters. Masters are adults 22+ who row competitively and recreationally. Adults between 18-22 years of age are considered college rowers but are welcome to row with the GAR Masters team. Many people new to this sport do not realize that the word “master” refers only to the age of rower and is not an indication of ones rowing ability.

Our GAR Masters program provides both recreational and competitive rowing opportunity for adults in the Gainesville area. We are a growing group with a broad mix of ages and abilities. We enjoy several organized rows each week, year around. Members have the benefit of a talented and dedicated staff of coaches.

No prior experience is necessary. We offer Learn-to-Row programs to help get you started with this new sport. For experienced rowers, even those who have been away from the sport for a time, the coaches will work with you to help you quickly re-establish your stroke during our scheduled rows.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the Masters’ Liaison, MaryEl Duncan
