Erg Ed® is a classroom-based indoor rowing education program of the Pocock Foundation running in seven public school districts across the country and serving more than 10,000 students a year. Erg Ed started in 2010 as an integrated component of Seattle Public Schools “Five for Life” physical education curriculum. In 2015, USRowing partnered with the Pocock Foundation to expand Erg Ed nationwide to Memphis, TN, Allentown, PA, Portland, OR, and Chicago, IL. Most recently, Oakland Strokes partnered with the Pocock Foundation to bring Erg Ed to Oakland, CA.
Erg Ed brings equipment (indoor rowing machines – ergs), technology, curriculum, and training to middle and high school physical education classes so that teachers and students can access rowing without ever leaving the classroom. Through Erg Ed, students learn basic rowing skills, exercise intensity, goal setting, and teamwork in a fun, highly engaging 5-day core curriculum.
