Recreational Masters Team

CRF Intermediate and Recreational Masters

CRF Intermediate and Recreational Masters

The recreational masters team is for rowers 18 years and older who are interested in rowing but do not want to compete. The intermediate team is for rowers 18 years and older who wish to compete for a spot in a boat to race at  two races annually (The Chicago Sprints during the summer and Rowtoberfest during the fall). Both teams practice three times a week.


New rowers are welcome to join the recreational masters team at the beginning of each season. In order to start during an on-water season (Spring & Fall), participants must have completed at least one of the following:

  • Winter season with the Rec team

  • One learn to row session (5-6 on water practices) with Chicago Rowing Foundation

  • One on-water season at another club

If you have questions about joining either team, please contact Maida at
