We hold several learn to row programs throughout the year. These are two-week programs to learn the basics of rowing and handling of the boat. In addition, we also hold a one-day free Learn to Row Program, which takes place across the country, in June. Don’t miss your chance to try something new. Limited spots available. Sign up today!


We are offering our popular Learn To Row session for adults starting Sunday, Aug. 4!
