Welcome to Naiades

Naiades Oncology Rowing welcomes and encourages male and female cancer survivors to row with us. We are here to provide support and strength for each of you during the recovery and survivorship process. We want to meet you and get you in a boat. Check out our Schedule Page and look for learn-to-row opportunities if you are new to rowing, or join us through our Online Registration. If you have any questions, just Contact Us.

2019 Spring Training

OUTDOOR SPRING TRAINING: Our 2019 Spring session begins April 23rd and continues thru June 13th at Genesee Waterways Center, 149 Elmwood Avenue, Rochester NY 14611. Online Registration is open now !

GWC WORKOUTS: Our 2019 Wednesday winter workouts consist of a combination of ERG workouts, weights and stretches/yoga at the Genesee Waterways Center, 149 Elmwood Avenue, Rochester NY 14611. Our first 2019 session begins on Wednesday, January 9th from 6:00 to 7:30 PM and will continue until outdoor training begins. The cost is $5 per session attended. It's a great opportunity to learn to row on the ERG or just improve your performance with core workouts and ERG workouts combined. Come every Wednesday or whenever you can make it.

IN THE TANKS: We are partnering with Genesee Waterways for winter indoor rowing at the Pittsford Indoor Rowing Center or PIRC. We will be rowing 4 Saturday morning sessions on January 26th, February 9th, March 9th and April 13th from 8:45 to 10:15 AM. This is a great opportunity to try rowing with an oar in the water but with no chance of "tipping the boat."

If you have any questions or for more information, call Janice at 585-739-3717 or send us an e-mail.

Row It Forward Scholarship

The mission of Naiades Oncology Rowing is to serve the physical and emotional needs of cancer survivors through a shared rowing experience that fosters wellness, courage, determination and healing. The cost of maintaining this rowing program is considerable and is funded in significant part by fees paid by each participant.

Our mission is frustrated whenever these fees present a barrier for those most in need of experiencing the best that Naiades has to offer. For this reason, the Board of Directors has established the Row It Forward Financial Support Scholarship Program, supported by a dedicated fund and on-going donations, for those who need financial assistance to participate in Naiades programs. For more information, check the program description above. To apply, complete the Application and submit it for consideration.


Donations are always welcomed and can be made directly through PayPal.
