Rowing classes take place at the Millvale Training Facility and demystify rowing techniques and proper form; beginners' classes are open to all, but intermediate sessions are reserved for those with prior rowing experience. Alternatively, ERG-machine rowing fitness classes include circuit-training moves with rowing exercises, and focus on fitness more than standard technique.
Three Rivers Rowing Association
Since 1984, Three Rivers Rowing Association has become one of the largest community-based rowing and paddling clubs in the country, converting neophytes into boating lovers and helping experts hone their form. With the use of two boathouses located on the Allegheny River, the club is home to crews from three local colleges and nine high schools and was named the 2010 Club of the Year from USRowing. In addition to winter and summer rowing leagues, the club runs amateur dragon-boating leagues and sponsors the Pittsburgh Paddlefish, a dragon-boating team that competes at the international level.
