Rowing I (Learn-to-row)

Adults new to rowing can take our learn-to-row class, which teaches the fundamentals of rowing. This “on the water” class covers the basics of the rowing stroke, rowing terms, boat handling, equipment car, water safety, and coxing skills. Students begin by learning the basics of the rowing stroke on ergometers (indoor rowing machines) and in docked boats, then quickly progress to rowing in sweep (one oar per person) racing shells. Depending on class size, students may also be introduced to sculling (two oars per person). Satisfactory completion of this class qualifies adults for Rowing II. Learn-to-row classes meet for 2 hours, for a total of 18 hours of instruction. We row rain or shine, so come prepared!

Rowing II-III (Novice/intermediate rowing)

Completion of Rowing I, or equivalent rowing experience, is a prerequisite for attending Rowing II-III practices. These practices include rowers with varying experience levels, but who generally share the common goals of improving their fitness and rowing skill.

Most novice rowers, or those with less than one year of rowing experience, are part of the Rowing II group, which also includes recreational rowers who enjoy rowing for the social outlet and the outdoor experience, and who are not necessarily interested in racing. Rowing III is our more competitive group (which can include novice rowers) that attends regional regattas, such as the USRowing Northwest Masters Regional Championships in Vancouver, WA. However, all rowers are encouraged to race, particularly at our three annual Green Lake regattas.

The two groups practice together on Saturdays and Sundays from 9-11am, year-round, and from 6:30-8:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the late spring and summer.

All participants should have current USRowing memberships. Instructions for registration are here.

Competitive Rowing 

This is a competition and fitness program for the serious adult rower. It features on and off the water conditioning, advanced rowing technique, and racing skills are included to prepare you for competition. We expect a strong commitment and regular attendance. Completion of several sessions of Rowing III and instructor’s permission are required.

Punch Card

While Green Lake offers a “punch card” option that enables participants to attend any regularly-scheduled adult on-water rowing session for $13 per row, we encourage regular participants to register for each seasonal class (at $9.50 per row), either online via SPARC or through the GLSCC office. Participants who join a class after the first day may have their registration fee prorated by contacting the GLSCC office.

For questions about the Masters rowing program, contact the boathouse at 206-684-4074.
