Welcome to the Rowing Club of the Woodlands Masters Rowing page. We have multiple teams that you will be able to join that fit your schedule or rowing goals. RCTW prides itself on having state of the art facilities for our rowers as well as a strong group of coaches who help our rowers discover their unbounded potential.
Why is Masters rowing becoming so popular?
Rowing is a great total body workout. It uses all of the body’s major muscle groups (arms, legs, back, abdomen, and buttocks). Although strenuous, it is low impact, and improves flexibility and strengthens the back. It can also help prevent and manage osteoporosis.
High-intensity rowing burns over 800 calories per hour.
Rowing relieves stress. It’s not just the exercise and endorphins that make rowing such a good stress reliever. There is a meditative quality in the repetitive rhythm of the stroke. Beautiful sunsets over tranquil waters don’t hurt either.
You can row with others or on your own. We have rowing shells for 4 people, 2 people, or 1 person. Once you complete our Learn to Row program you can continue on your own or take advantage of when we have coaches available and group rows (subject to safety rules and procedures). If you want to row singles you will also need to complete our Learn to Scull program and pass a Flip Test. If you already have rowing experienced, a simple orientation meeting with one of our coaches and completion of the application process is all that is needed
