The Crystal Lake Rowing Club was founded in 2004 with the primary purpose of providing competitive and recreational rowing and sculling for the residents of the greater Crystal Lake area. The Club rows on Crystal Lake from the Kamijima Park Boathouse in Lakewood, IL, with an indoor rowing facility at Crossfit North Wall at 824 S Main St #107 in Crystal Lake. As a club, we welcome and encourage men and women of all ages and experience levels who wish to become involved in this wonderful sport.
The club consists of:
For area high school students, regardless of experience, looking for competitive rowing. Open to any high school student. The program focuses on sweep rowing, but sculling is also an option for experienced rowers. For more information, click on the "Juniors Rowing" tab on the navigation bar.
For men and women over 18 years of age, regardless of experience, looking for competitive or recreational rowing. The primary focus of our Masters program is sculling, but sweep rowing is available to Masters. Membership entitles you unlimited use of the club boats (singles, doubles, quads, sweep 4s and 8s) and equipment. For more information, click on the "Masters Rowing" tab on the navigation bar.
Never rowed before?
For teens who have never rowed before, we offer a Summer Beginner Rowing Camp for Teens, a week long camp focused on teaching the fundamentals of rowing for 8th through 12th graders.
Our Adult Learn to Row classes are 4-week classes offered in the spring and summer. These classes typically meet twice a week for two hours and focus on the fundamentals of sculling (rowing with 2 oars). The next LTR class begins June 11 and ends July 11 and is held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with no classes on July 2 and July 4.
Learn to Row Day offers a basic introduction to rowing. Come out to Kamijima Park beginning at 2pm on June 2, 2013 to get an introduction to rowing, and follow up with Learn to Row classes if you're interested in learning more and becoming a club member.
