@TheRowingCoach hi any good websites for junior rowing games, either on or off erg looking for something a bit different to do with them. thx

 Now we know about ergo golf.  Here's the simple way to play:

  1. set a number of holes and decide the length of each hole in meters.
  2. Each athlete has to try and complete that distance in the fewest number of strokes.
  3. Keep score

And we found this more complex version of "Erg Golf" with a score sheet table from the Cascadilla Boat Club.

We found a discussion thread on Coxie.com which included

  • teams rowing 1 minute each and aiming for furthest distance
  • 500m relays in teams of 5 where each rowed 5 times
  • Coxswains yelling out split times (high or low) and the last person to achieve the split is out and gets to yell at the rest with the cox

Any others?
