Adult Learn-to-row Program

Includes on-land and on-water instruction to learn the basic techniques of sculling and sweep rowing. Participants who successfully complete the Learn-to-row II are encouraged to consider joining the Masters Program.

Learn-to-row I

For adults with no previous rowing experience

Learn-to-row II

For adults with previous experience or those who have completed Learn-to-row I

Arrive early & dress appropriately

Arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled on-water time to warm up and get organized. Wear comfortable athletic clothing that can get wet or dirty. Avoid baggy shirts, shorts or pants that could get stuck on the oar handles or the sliding seat. Shoes are not worn in the boat, so be sure to wear durable socks. Rowing is a water sport and it is easy to get wet, so bring a change of clothes.

warning Pre-requisites

  • All participants must know how to swim and complete the swim test certification before the first practice. Note that rowers do not wear life jackets in the boat. The coaching launch is equipped with life jackets for every rower.
  • You should expect to lift 25-30 lbs above your head. A fully-rigged eight person rowing shell weighs around 200 pounds. With eight people lifting and carrying, each person shoulders 25 to 30 pounds. You should consult with your physician before starting any strenuous exercise program such as rowing.
