Have you ever wanted to join us on the river, skimming the water in streamlined unison?
This Learn to Row course is designed for beginners and will teach basic rowing technique and safety. By the end of the course, you should feel comfortable rowing recreationally in a 4 or 8 person rowing shell with others. You may even decide to take these news skills to the next level and join the competitive WRPC Masters Crew team.
Our Learn to Row course is staff by experienced volunteers and will be taught in a coached on-water learning environment. You will be active in class, and because of this, there are some physical requirements for admission:
- Participants must be competent swimmers. You must be able to tread water, and put on a life jacket while in the water.
- Participants must be comfortable lifting and walking with 30 pounds overhead (participants will have to carry the boats to and from the water).
- Individuals with health conditions should check with a physician before signing up.
- Participants should have a basic level of fitness and ability to do sustained aerobic activity.
Rowing is a team sport and requires consistent attendance. Each class will build on techniques taught in the last class, and your teammates will be counting on you to fill the boat. Be prepared to commit! You will be glad you did.
Upon successful completion of the course registration fees can be applied to membership fees.
Note: Learning to row a single scull can be arranged by joining WRPC and contacting the single scull rowing instructors.
