Informational Night For New Rowers

Future rowers who indicated an interest in learning about Naiades Rowing in person joined us at our 2015 Fall "OPEN HOUSE" Wednesday, September 30, at Genesee Waterways Center at 5:30 PM.

Participants had a chance to learn about our programs, meet some of our rowers, and even take a ride down the river in one of our shells. The Naiades Oncology Rowing program is committed to serving the physical and emotional needs of cancer survivors, and we look forward to rowing with our new recruits in the tanks later this fall and on the river next spring.

Whether you are a woman who is new to rowing or you are an experienced rower, if you are a cancer survivor, we want you !!! Build your core strength, develop supporting relationships, have fun!

Come, join us on the water. Check out our the information below about Intro to Rowing and Learn to Row activities and rowing schedule. We will post details on our next Intro to Rowing and Learn to Row sessions as soon as it is available.
