The Pierce Boathouse grants access for recreational sculling to adults with an MIT Recreation membership. Those without experience or seeking to develop skills are encouraged to register for our Sculling Instructional Program offered during the summer.
Those with rowing or sculling experience may be cleared for unsupervised recreational sculling April 1 through September 30. In order to use our sculling shells an individual must: a) have a current fitness center membership, b) pass the swim/boat test, c) pass both a written and practical exam of sculling knowledge, and d) pay the annual fee. If you are interested in rec sculling, but unable to complete any part of the requirements, you may consider a private lesson to help establish competency. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
