Rec Rowing

Rec rowing programs are for experienced rowers only – you need not be an expert (we expect everyone to continue to learn and improve). Looking for an introductory class? View all of our learn to row programs here.  

These programs are for experienced rowers and those who have come up through the learn to row and intermediate classes. All rowers will be expected to be comfortable rowing all 8, feathering and squaring, and adding in/dropping out while the boat is rowing continuously. These programs will focus on sweep (one oar per person) rowing, though many athletes will likely scull at least a few times per season.

This is the next step in the process after graduating from a Learn to Row Sweep class.  (or you could also take a Learn to Scull Class) This class brings together the intermediate athletes with the more experienced rec athletes, who will fully join after completing this class.
