About the event

Join the Buffalo River Rowing Club Novice Team anytime from June 1st until the end of the year. BRRC is an associate member organization of the BSRA. BRRC is an adult team for all levels of rowing. We accept adults from 21 years old and up from beginner to experienced. Our team is a mix of  competitive and recreational rowers. The Novice team is specifically for rowers who want to continue rowing after a learn to row program. Rowers are considered Novices for their first year. 

By joining the Novice team, you are welcome to attend practices any Tuesday, Thursday from 5:50-8pm and Sundays from 7-9:10am. Practices are no required, sign up on BRRC's team communication system (Heja) when you can attend and the coaches will make line ups prior to practice. Tuesday practices are just for novices (or intermediate and rec rowers who want a technical practice), Thursdays and Sundays are at the same time as the Masters team. In the Fall, our on-the-water practices are cut short due to daylight, however we most often will offer an optional workout indoors for the remaining time. Our docks come up in early November and then we have a few indoor practices, but mostly lead by experienced rowers and not always coached. As a "member" of BSRA, you're welcome to workout at the Boathouse during open hours. Contact Hilary at to inquire. 

Lastly, Novices are welcome to participate in a regatta (rowing race), entry fees for a regatta are separate and split between the rowers in the boat (usually $15-$20/rower/race). 

BRRC Head Coach: Hilary Epes-Oballim ( 

Cost is two fold: 

1st payment is via this website to BSRA as your "Dues" (similar to a membership to a club)- $560.  We accept Independent Health Health Extra Cards. If you don't have IH, we encourage you to send in your receipt to your insurance company for reimbursment since this "membership" is very much health and wellness related. 

2nd payment is via Venmo or Check to BRRC Masters as a Team Fee. This $250 goes toward coaching and equipment needs and repairs.
