Members of OAR have access to our fleet of rowing shells, once they have cleared safety requirements. We are a non-profit fully volunteer organization and fees from our members as well as camps and clinics help cover insurance, purchase new equipment and maintain our existing fleet for our growing program as well as cover our access fees to Brookwood. We seek to help our members grow in skill as rowers as well as connect so as to strengthen our inter generational rowing community on Lake Otsego in Cooperstown. Active members participate in races as well as community rows and team based practice sessions. We also offer off water training programs on ergs for our club.
Personal Boat Storage: $100 (Storage must be available and approved by the Club; Owner must agree to terms and have passed the Captain’s test)

All members must complete and pay membership dues every year in order to access the Boat Sign Out sheet.
In order to sign out club boats, each member must be certified by a board member or coach. This is a one time process, however if you are a novice rower or it’s been a few years, we ask that you check with a coach or board member prior to accessing any club equipment.
