OASIS Adaptive Rowing at the Genesee Rowing Club in Rochester, NY.
In the Summer of 2015, adaptive rowing became the 7th sport in the lineup of OASIS' adaptive programs. It will be run by the Rochester Community Inclusive Rowing organization, who will provide participants with all needed equipment and instruction. A 12-step instructional sequence is in place to get the Veteran proficient at rowing on his/her own.
The program will start in June and end in late September. Four lesson times will be available during the week, each 2 hours in length: Tuesday and Thursday evenings (5pm) and Saturday and Sunday mornings (negotiable). There is no limit on the number of students which can be accepted into this program. Three shells will be available for lessons/instructors: a quad (up to 3 Vets can participate in it), a double and a single (one Vet each). It is expected that 12 rowing events will be needed to graduate/certify a student. Additional students can join during the 2nd half of the lesson blocks (effectively August 1), assuming slots have been vacated by graduates.

The location of the program is at the Genesee Rowing Club, 1 Hawthorne Drive (in Genesee Valley Park), Rochester, NY 14620. The program coordinator and instructors will be from RCIR, with additional volunteers from both RCIR and other Rochester rowing clubs.
Graduating student will receive a Certificate of Graduation from RCIR. They may also qualify for scholarships to continue rowing at GRC, using available shells, on their own time, and a membership to US Rowing ($65/year), which will allow them to participate in various rowing/racing events around the country
