Our Learn To Row program is designed for the beginning rower. Each class session can accommodate 16 rowers, or 2 boats of 8 sweep rowers; each with its own designated coxswain. Participants have the opportunity to sit both port and starboard in various seats of the boat. Learn To Rowers will spend the first week in their designated boats, but throughout the lessons, will assimilate into club boats. This gives everyone the chance to row with experienced rowers. Participants should have adequate swimming ability. Each participant should wear close-fitting workout clothes, socks, and sturdy shoes (no crocs or flip flops). Hydration is important, so bring a water bottle (no metal, please). Because each seat is vital to the entire boat, please do everything you can to be present at every practice. If you have to miss, please let your coach know as soon as possible.
