TRRA Membership

TRRA membership is NOT required for tryouts or the team. However if you want to practice on the ergs on your own time you must become a member.

All membership sign ups are handled online. There are several different options so read through the list carefully to get your best deal. Most people looking to use the ergs will want the Adult Fitness.

TRRA membership page:

Payment can be done via CC when you sign up, check to be mailed with the printed invoice or dropped off at the Lambert Boathouse (Washington's Landing) and you can have monthly payments deducted from an bank account but I think you have to call (412.231.8772) to work that out. It is my understanding that you can sign up for monthly payments then cancel them should you decide to leave TRRA; though this is not a preferred route for TRRA, it does essentially turns your yearly membership into a monthly.

Facility members have access to all indoor equipment at both boathouses. The paddling ergs are at the Lambert Boathouse (Washington's Landing).

There is a bit of a catch. Teams have most of the good time blocks reserved for their use. There is a TRRA rule that 2 ergs must be left for individual member use however 30 high school kids can crowd a place up. These teams are on the rowing machines so usually the paddling machines are open for use but its good practice to ask the coach for the right space to set the erg up at.

Here is a link to the erg schedule for 2007:
