Adults new to rowing can take our Learn to Row class (R1A), which teaches the fundamentals of rowing.
This class covers the basics of the rowing stroke, rowing terms, boat handling, equipment care, and water safety. Participants 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 participants for the Rowing 2.
Learn-to-row classes meet ten times for two hours each, for a total of 20 hours of instruction. We row rain or shine, so come prepared.
