Want to learn more about the sport of rowing?   

Our LEARN TO ROW (LTR) program is the entry point for anyone (adults) interested in learning to row for sport or recreation with no previous rowing experience. 

Our full LEARN TO ROW program is divided into Two Parts, for a total of 8 sessions,  of approximate two hours per session. After that you may join our Novice Group to continue to develop your newly learned skills.

PART 1 is a BASIC INTRODUCTION TO ROWING -  safety education, learning the elements of the rowing stroke on rowing machines, and experiencing some on water rowing. There are a lot of things to learn, these sessions will introduce you to the basics. It is very important that you attend all four sessions.

PART 2/Novice is for graduates of PART ONE.. Additional sessions to learn basic sculling technique in quads (4 person boats)  and develop your skiills, confidence and balance on the water, and be able to row as a crew. You do not need to attend all dates offered within the set, but the more that you participate, the more that you will learn. Advance signup for the dates of your choice is required - there will be a limit to number of participants per day.

Learn To Row fees for 2023 are  - PART ONE     $250. plus RCA and ROWING BC annual fees

                                                          PART TWO/NOVICE   $300 (plus RCA and Rowing BC fees, if applicable)
