ABOUT ERG ED

Erg Ed® is a classroom-based indoor rowing education program of the Pocock Foundation running in fourteen public school districts across the country and serving more than 25,000 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, Chicago, IL, Ann Arbor, MI, Stockton, CA, San Diego, CA, Everett, WA, and Los Angeles, CA. The Pocock Foundation also has grown to Bellingham, WA, Renton, WA, Bothell, WA, Woodinville, WA, and Kenmore, WA, and through a partnership with Oakland Strokes Rowing Club, also offers Erg Ed in 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 curriculum.

CURRICULUM

Indoor rowing is a lifetime sport that is a high intensity, low impact, total body workout that middle and high school students can safely participate in. Rowing can be used as a great form of exercise from age eleven to one hundred eleven! The nationally recognized Erg Ed curriculum will leave students with the skills to be able to safely perform the rowing stroke, therefore forever giving them to tools needed to properly use a rowing machine, for a great workout, anytime in their future. Students will also be connected to their local rowing community for continued opportunities in the sport of rowing both on land and on the water.

The SHAPE America aligned Erg Ed curriculum not only introduces the motion and technique of rowing but also connects cross-curricular lessons that can be brought from the gym into the classroom and beyond.
